A bread perfect to toast. Easy to make with lots of flavour, depending on what type of beer you choose.


  • 250 Milliliters Light beer
  • 150 Milliliters Water
  • 50 Grams Yeast
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt
  • ½ Tablespoons Molasses, honey or corn syrup
  • 440 Grams Oil
  • Graham flour
  • Wheat flour
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Heat up water & beer to 37 C.

    Step 2

    Crumble the yeast.

    Step 3

    Pour over the water/beer and stir until the yeast dissolves.

    Step 4

    Like so.

    Step 5

    Add salt and oil. I also added some molasses, but honey also works. Taste it and decide how you want it.

    Step 6

    Stir again and start adding the graham flour.

    Step 7


    Step 8

    Then add the wheat flour little by little. Usually not all flour is needed.

    Step 9

    Work the dough with a wooden fork or similar.

    Step 10

    When the dough feels ready (not sticky) cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let rest for 30 min.

    Step 11

    After 30 min. the dough has doubled in size (or is at least bigger than it was when you started).

    Step 12

    Move it to your baking mat and kneed it shortly.

    Step 13

    Cut the dough in 2 pieces and..

    Step 14 each piece in a buttered bread mold.

    Step 15

    Brush each loaf with some tepid water..

    Step 16

    ..and sprinkle with graham flour.

    Step 17

    Place in the oven and bake for 30-40 min at 200 C.

    Step 18

    Remove the breads from the bread molds and place directly onto the grid.

    Step 19

    Like so. Bake another 5-10 min.

    Step 20

    Here we have the finished result.

    Step 21

    I would have preferred them a bit higher but other than that I'm satisfied.

    Step 22

    I sliced mine and put them in the freezer.

    Step 23

    To enjoy your toast to the fullest eat it with a homemade jam, like this one with rhubarbs.

    Step 24

    How wonderful to have home made toast on weekend mornings!
