We have a lovely date every Monday here at our island, a family club of our parish. Today we had a visit from the family club, about twenty guests, moms, grand-mothers, babies, children and for example Rasmus who had his 5th birthday and offered us delicious cookies. We had baked yesterday here at Pellas - a big honey bread and apple-coconat muffins - and enjoyed a nice cup of tea and coffee around our long kitchen table chatting and watching the children play.
Pellas Honey Bread
100 gr butter
1 dl honey
5 dl water
50 gr yeast
12-13 dl wheat flour
1 tbs salt
Mix with a warm water the melted butter, honey, salt and yeast, and add 5 dl of the flour. Let the dough rise under a cloth for a half hour. Add the rest of the flour and mix with a hand so that the dough is soft but gets loose from the bowl. Let it rise another 30 minutes.
Divide the dough in two and make a round of the first part on the baking tray (with a baking paper on the bottom). Form a sneal of the other part of the dough on top of the round one. Put some flour on the bread, cover and let it rise again 30 minutes.
Bake in the oven 50 minutes on 175 degrees, cover for the last minutes not to get too dark bread. Enjoy with fresh butter.
|We had a wonderful morning sun but a brisk wind and needed our woollen hats!|
Of course the sheep and Agnes the Goat got their share, too, of dried bread that some of the guests had even brought from home. They were as glad as the hostess of the farm to get a house full of life!
Thank you all for a nice time together!
