Quite sure I have said this before, I like easy, so when I came across this recipe, I knew this was something for me. And I can show some of my newest addition of linen towels.
Found this recipe on a superb food blog called Det Søte Liv.
50 gr yeast
7,5 dl lukewarm water
1 tablespoon liquid honey
2 teaspoon salt
150 gr coarse whole wheat flour
200 gr fine whole wheat flour
400 gr wheat flour
200 gr oatmeal
2 tablespoon of flaxseed ( I didn´t use the flaxseed, so you can leave them out if you want)
Dissolve the yeast in some of the lukewarm water. Then add the rest of the water and the honey.
Mix the salt with the coarse and fine whole wheat flour and add into the liquid above. Then add the wheat flour and oatmeal (and the flaxseed if desired). Knead the dough in a kitchen machine with a kneading hook/bread hook for about 10 minutes. Then let the dough rest for 1 hour. I cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a towel ( picture above).
After 1 hour my dough looks like this (picture below) And I simply love the smell of the dough.
Put the dough on a piece of parchment paper that fit into the baking pan. The pan used for this recipe is approx 30 cm X 40 cm. Use your hands or a rolling pin and spread the dough out. Use a little extra flour if needed. Then lift the baking paper into the pan. Use a pizza cutter or a dough scrape to cut the dough into squares. Then leave the dought to rise again for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, brush the dogh with water and add different types of seeds onto the squares. I used sunflour seeds, sesame seeds, oatmeal and poppy seeds. You can also use flaxseeds if you want or nothing, your choise.
Bake the rolls at the bottom of your oven at 200 degrees celcius for about 30-40 minutes. The color should be golden.
When baked, let the rolls cool on a cooling rack. Then you can just "tear" them apart. They are so yummy when fresh. Freeze the ones you don´t eat. After defrosted you can warm them a little in your oven again before eating.
I was looking for striped linen towels and google sent me straight to etsy.com. I have heard about etsy, but never shopped there before. Guess what, there will be more shopping from etsy. They have so many linen towels, I felt I was in kitchentowel heaven. Lots of striped, and when this towel came up, I loved it. This is the link to this towel.
I loved the colors on this towel and when the towels arrived, I loved the linen fabric used as well. It´s organic linen towels from Lithuania. I ordered one towel first, but when it arrived, it was so supercool that I ordered two more. And I´m already planning this years Christmas presents.
