This nutritiously delicious homemade bread with perfectly moist crumb and lightly chewy crust, made with soaked 5 grains, grape seed flour, and spelt bread flour along with liquid barley malt extract, which adds so much more flavour and complexity to the taste.
Grape seed flour, naturally high in protein, and OPC (one of the most potent antioxidants known — 50 times as powerful as vitamin E), is known for its great taste and can be added to almost every meal.

Five Grain Spelt Bread with Grapeseed Flour and Malt Extract

adapted from Brot-Bernd Armbrust
©angiesrecipes
  • 300 ml Water, boiling
  • 300 g Organic 5-grain mix, crushed
  • 35 g Fresh yeast
  • 100 g Liquid barley malt extract
  • 250 ml Lukewarm water
  • 420 g Spelt bread flour
  • 100 g Grape seed flour
  • 22 g Salt
  • 2-3 tbsp Pumpkin seeds
  1. Pour the boiling water over crushed 5-grain mix in a large bowl. Cover and let it swell for at least 4 hours or overnight until the water has been all absorbed.
  2. Dissolve the fresh yeast and malt extract in the lukewarm water. Add in spelt bread flour, grape seed flour and salt. Stir for 2 minutes until combined. Now add in the soaked 5-grain mixture. Stir at low speed for 3 minutes, then increase the speed and knead for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the dough ono a floured work surface. Fold the dough a few times and shape into a round. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and rest for 25 minutes. Do a stretch-and-fold every 15 minutes. Line two loaf pans with baking paper. Divide the dough into two portions and form each into a log. Place each into a loaf pan. Brush the tops with water and sprinkle with pumpkin seeds. Cover with kitchen towel and proof for 30 minutes.
  4. At the same time, preheat the oven to 220C/410F with a shallow tray filled with water sitting at the bottom of the oven. Once the oven has reached the desired temperature, remove the tray filled with water and bake the loaves in the center of the hot oven for about 50 minutes.

Another bread to add to my what to bake list. Funny you used the barley malt, I wanted to make a roll recipe a couple weeks ago and it called for it, wasn't sure I had ever seen it. I guess I need to look harder, huh. Hope you are having a good weekend.

Angie,

I have tried twice to contact you through the contact link at the top of your blog and it has failed to go through for whatever reason. Here is my request that I was trying to send to you:

Dear Angie,

As one of my favorite food bloggers, I would like to invite you to write a guest blogger post for my blog "La Bella Vita Cucina" while I am away on vacation between May 18th and May 25th.

If you'd like to do this, all I ask is for you to prepare something "Italian" in focus and to inform your readers of your wonderful and delicious posts and to share your post on Pinterest and Google+

Also, if you could send your post to my email a few days earlier than the date that you select, along with your photos, it would be most appreciated!

Angie, I hope to be able to use this opportunity to introduce you and your delicious blog and recipes to my readers and my 12,000 followers. Please let me know when you'd enjoy being a guest poster on "La Bella Vita Cucina".

Thanks,
Roz
