Flower Pot Whole Spelt and Rye Bread with Hazelnuts and Quark

© 2020 |

© 2020 |

These are some fun, totally foolproof, yeast-free and delicious bread to bake in a flower pot, which I have adapted from this Quark-Nussbrote found on eatsmarter. The dough is prepared with a mix of whole spelt and rye flour with Quark (a type of German fresh cheese), spices and whole hazelnuts that would result a rustic, hearty bread packed with nutrition and flavour with slightly denser and chewy texture.

  • 300 g Whole spelt flour
  • 300 g Whole rye flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Anise powder
  • 1/4 tsp Fennel seed powder
  • 1/4 tsp Caraway seed powder
  • 1/4 tsp Coriander seed powder
  • 100 g Olive oil
  • 250 g Quark
  • 180 ml 3.5% Milk
  • 2 Eggs, medium
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 80 g Hazelnuts
  1. Whisk together the spelt, rye flours, and baking powder together with all the spices in a mixing bowl. Now add in olive oil, 160 ml of the milk, eggs, and sea salt. Use a hand mixer fitted with dough hooks to beat all the ingredients until a smooth dough forms.
  2. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured work surface and knead in the hazelnuts. Cut out two portions of dough, each weighs about 150 grams. Shape each into a ball and place each into a small greased or parchment-lined flower pot. Shape the rest of the dough into a ball and place into a large grease or parchment-lined flower pot. Brush the top with the rest of the milk.
  3. Fill an oven-safe bowl with water and place it at the bottom of your oven. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F fan forced.
  4. Bake the small ones for 30 minutes and the large one for 60-70 minutes until nicely golden brown. Remove and cool briefly. Turn out the bread and cool on a wire rack completely before slicing. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

Flower pot bakes are like the "in" thing! I like that you can "grow" homely breads in pots :p
