As you might have noticed I became crazy about baking recently. I am starting to create own recipes. Just like this savoury raisin bread with almonds. It is massive so I think we have to eat only bread for the next days. But I really like it. Usually raisin breads are of the soft and sweet type so this is a great alternative and it is very good with cheese.
I discovered this new type of cheese called “Gorgonzola al vino”. At the market they stuck a bottle of red wine headfirst into a big gorgonzola cheese for a couple of weeks, changing the position of the bottle every now and then until the cheese has fully absorbed the wine. It tastes fantastic!
I love the rustic look of the bread. It looks like one of those breads that knights would have in a green pouch and then cut it with a sword…
What you need:
500g spelt flour
15g dry yeast
100g chopped almonds
1 teaspoon nutmeg
A pinch of salt
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix everything well
Then knead the mixture with your hands until you have a smooth dough
Leave the dough in a bowl at a warm place for about 1 hour
The dough must have doubled its size – knead it again well
Preheat the oven on 180°C
Leave it alone again for another 30 minutes
Place the dough in the desired shape on a baking tray and put it in the oven for about 35 minutes
