Recipe's preparation

    bacon butter mix
  1. To the bowl add : 3 cloves of garlic Mince on speed 8 for 10 seconds. Scrape down sides. Then add 220g diced bacon rashes 40 g butter Cook on varoma temperature for 2 minutes reverse speed 2 with mc lid off. Remove from bowl and set aside to cool  
  2. wash and dry bowl
  3. Grate in bowl 80 g tasty cheese20 g Parmesan cheese Remove and set aside  Grate in bowl 1 cup fresh basil Remove and set aside with the cheese Make sure you have scraped the bowl as best as possible of any cheese and basil.  
  4. Dough
  5. Then measure and add to bowl in this order : 300 g Luke warm water 2 teaspoons dried yeast 1 teaspoon sea salt Mix together in bowl on 39 degrees speed 2 for 40 seconds.  Add to bowl 320 g white spelt flour 200 g wholemeal spelt flour 10 g extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon wallabies bread improver About half the diced bacon About half cheese and basil mixture Mix all ingredients together on speed 6 for 10 seconds Set dial to closed lid position and knead for 1 minute.  Spray oil on thermo mat and remove dough onto the mat and roll into a ball, wrap dough lightly in mat and set aside to rise in a warm spot ( dash board of car always a winner for me )  for about half a hour. After the dough has doubled. Punch down and quickly and gently separate into 3 even pieces and roll into logs like this , the dough should be very sticky and tacky. Careful not to over knead or roll the dough too much. As I've mentioned before spelt flour does not like over kneading and will make the bread more dense. Then remove logs onto a oven tray lined with baking paper and gently plait the doughSprinkle remaining cheese and bacon mixtures on top And set aside to rest for another 10 minutes. Then pop into a cold oven for 30 minutes on 200 degrees.      

Accessories you need



Check the bread after 30 minutes, I struggle to know when bread is ready and I sometimes seem to over bake then I get the accused " rock bread " thrown around. I put a skewer in the middle and it came out clean so that was my sign it was baked tmrc_emoticons.;) and it turned out perfect. Still lovely and soft and moist. We had lashings of butter and my friend had hers with coconut oil spread onto it.
