Lazy Brown Bread

- Good, soft bread that is quick and easy to make


(30 pieces)
50 g Yeast
5 dl Water
25 g Butter or margarine
1.5 teaspoons Salt
30 ml Honey or syrup
250 g Kesella mager kvarg  (I think this is called quark in English)
2 dl Wholemeal flour
13 dl Plain flour


Crumble the yeast in a cup with a little sugar and leave to stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally - it should become runny. Meanwhile, melt the butter in some of the water and add the rest of the water, warming if necessary until it feels luke warm (37 o C). Stir in the yeast mixture, salt, syrup, Kesella then as much of the flour as is needed to form a non-sticky dough. Knead for about 5 minutes adding more flour if necessary. Leave to rise under a cloth for 45 minutes. Turn on the oven to 225 o C. Put a piece of backing paper in the bottom of a large backing sheet (about 30 x 40 cm), preferably on with sides. Place the dough in the middle of the pan, sprinkle generously with wholemeal flour and press out with your hands until the whole pan is covered. Cut into about 30 squares with a knife. Leave to rise for 20 minutes then bake for about 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack under a cloth, then just break into squares
