Milk Kefir

Spelled whole grain bread with sunflower seeds and milkkefir – full grain meets fresh milkkefir

I greet you my kefir friends,

last week I was invited to a friend’s dinner. There was next to a very tasty colorful salad a homemade bread. This bread was still lukewarm as it came fresh from the oven. It was so delicious and crispy … a baker could not have baked it better himself.

At the thought of it comes to me immediately the smell of fresh bread in the nose … .mmmmhh. So it happened that I stood in my kitchen on the last Sunday morning to bake my own bread for breakfast with family and friends. I got inspired by my storage cupboard and of course refined the dough with kefir … .It obviously tasted all, as unfortunately only a few crumbs are left 😉

For this delicious milk kefir recipe you need these ingredients:

  • 250 g spelt wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon bread spice ground (optional)
  • 100 g of bananas (you´ll not taste them later)
  • 150 g organic milk kefir* (you can order the starter complete set here*)
  • 250 g Whole wheat flour
  • 200 g sunflower seeds
  • 1½ teaspoon Himalaya stone salt* (You can order your stone salt here*)
  • 1 teaspoon blossom honey* (you can order your own organic honey here*)
  • 400 ml lukewarm water
  • 1 cube of fresh yeast (40 g)

useful accessories:

  • cake form* (30x12x10 cm) (you can order your own high quality cake form here*)
  • baking paper
  • Cooling Rack

Variant: You can also bake this bread with 1 package dry yeast (9 g).
Then you put the dry yeast by step 2 with the flour to the warm water.
