Israeli Brown Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by Love2Bake

I was actually attempting to invent a recipe for Longhorn Steak House Bread, but instead discovered a bread that reminds me of a wonderful bread I had when visiting Israel. It tasted incredible with chocolate spread (like nutella). I would highly recommend a try:)

I was very curious to try this, having lived in Israel years ago and missing the food terribly. This really is comparable to Israeli bread! I make it with spelt instead of whole wheat, and bake it in a loaf pan to use for sandwiches. Really light, good infusion from the grains, and is fabulous with nutella - as you said! Thanks for giving me a piece of home!
