German Flax Bread. I got the recipe off a German internet page.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix whole wheat flour and white flour together with 2 teaspoons salt, 30 gr. flax seed and 1/2 teaspoons coriander.
  2. Mix milk and joghurt together in a saucepan and warm. Add yeast and sugar, stir until completely combined.
  3. Pour milk mixture, little by little into flour and knead thoroughly. The dough will be very firm. (I ended up adding about 50ml more milk).
  4. Let dough rise, covered, in an oven set at 30°C for 2 hours. After 2 hours punch the dough down and knead once more. Form into a round loaf.
  5. Brush the loaf with water and sprinkle with the remaining flax seed. Press softly into dough.
  6. After you have shaped the dough into a loaf preheat the oven to 200°C Bake the bread on the middle rack for 50-60 minutes.
  7. This bread is very crusty.
