Home Made Bread

I should bake breads more often. Hot, fresh bread is so delicious and it’s much cheaper than store bought bread. Bread making is easy, but it takes a while, because you have to let the dough rise. But it’s worth waiting. Here’s a recipe for carrot and garlic buns I made yesterday.

Carrot and Garlic Buns

3 big carrots
25g yeast
5 dl water
1 tbsp molasses (or sugar or honey)
4 (big) garlic cloves
1 tbsp dried parsley
1,5 dl rolled oats
4 dl whole wheat flour
8 dl wheat flour
2 tbsp oil

Grate the carrots and mince the garlic cloves. Mix them with water, molasses, yeast and parsley in a big bowl. Add rolled oats and whole wheat flour and stir. Add about half of the wheat flour, start to knead and add more flour while you knead. In the end of kneading add the oil. When the dough is kneaded, cover the bowl with a towel and let the dough rise until it’s about doubled in size. Punch down and make 18 buns. Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper, put the buns on them and cover with towel. Let the buns rise 10-15 minutes and bake in 225 Celsius degrees about 15 minutes.
