Failsafe Dense Wheatgerm Bread

leave a comment »

Not failsafe for opioid responders.

One small, dense loaf weighing about 400 grams.

1 cup wheat germ
2 cups strong white wheat flour
1 tbsp baker’s yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp table salt
5 floz or 150 ml warm water

Add the water to a measuring jug. You can get the water to the right temperature by adding 1/3 boiling water to 2/3 cold water. Add the tablespoon of yeast and sugar and stir. Cover with a cloth or paper towel and put somewhere warm, like the top of a radiator. Leave for ten minutes or however long it takes to get at least an inch of foam on top of the water.

Meanwhile measure and mix the wheatgerm, flour and salt in a bowl. When the yeast is ready, add it to the flour. You may need to add extra water at this point, keep going until you get a nice consistency that isn’t too flaky or too sticky.

Add the dough to whatever tin you wish to bake it in – I recommend the flexible silicone ones for bread this dense! Then put back in your warm spot for as long as you prefer to leave it – anywhere between an hour or six!

When you are ready to bake the bread, preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius and bake for about an hour.

Best served hot, with a slab of butter on top.
