Bread making is surprisingly simple and astonishingly rewarding. Have a go!

Well, really. I call it a basic bread because it is not fanciful. It’s simply our daily bread, which we love for its taste, texture, and the fact that it keeps pretty well even though it is made from the most basic ingredients only, and free of any emulgators, stabilizers, coloring, preservatives and what-nots. Even though we don’t always make the exact same bread, we always come back to this one. 

The basic dough is simple (notes below):

250g of white wheat flour
50g each of white spelt flour, whole spelt flour, and whole rye flour
10g salt
280ml lukewarm water
20g yeast (use fresh yeast if you possibly can)
