Introduction

I'm making bread, Archipelago loaves, from a recipe I found in a magazine. The woman whose recipe it is is from my hometown... Now, the recipe stated you need malt, but I didn't have any, and couldn't find any this snowy Sunday, so I used oat bran instead: (Original recipe by Anki Elmvik, Pargas, Finland)

Method

Archipelago Loaves From Pargas is a community recipe submitted by Anonymous and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Crumble the yeast in the KA bowl, add the salt.
  • Heat the orange juice to body temperature and stir everything together.
  • Add the syrup and stir, then the rest of the liquid if using yoghurt or milk or sour milk..... Here I use a big metal serving spoon.
  • Then I put the bowl in the KA, and using the dough hook mix in the dry ingredients. I mix a good while, maybe up to 10 minutes (speed never over the setting 2). It makes a really loose dough, more the feeling of a thick batter, so don't be alarmed. It smells delicious!
  • You need 4 loaf tins (1 1/2 L or so), lightly greased. Spoon the dough evenly into the tins (I use the huge spoon from stirring the liquid into the yeast, and a rubber spatula), then leave, covered with a tea towel, to rise for 90 minutes.
  • Bake in a 175°C oven for 60 minutes. Baste with a mix of the syrup and water, then bake for another 30 minutes.
  • You can freeze the bread, but it is supposed to stay good and fresh for a while if packed airtight
