Buttermilk Bread

Recipe by WendyinGermany
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Warm the buttermilk, add the yeast and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Mix together the flour and salt.
  • Add the buttermilk/yeast mixture and the "seeds". Mix well. The dough should be elastic, but not sticky. If necessary add more flour or milk until it reaches the correct consistency.
  • Knead dough 10 minutes. Cover with a cloth and leave it to rise until it doubles in a warm place.
  • Form a round loaf from the dough. Place on a greased sheet, cover and let it rise another 30 minutes.
  • During this time, preheat the oven to 250°C and place an ovenproof dish with boiling water on the bottom of the oven.
  • Once the oven has reached the correct temperature, place the bread on the middle rack and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 200°C and bake for approximately 45 minutes.
  • Remove bread from oven and brush with cold water to create a shiny crust.
