Kamut Khorasan Bread

Ingredients

  • 500g Doves Farm Organic Stoneground KAMUT® Khorasan Wholemeal Flour
  • 1 tsp Doves Farm Quick Yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 375ml tepid water
  • 2 tbsp oil

Method

  1. Put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  2. Stir in the water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the oil.
  3. Using your hands, gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  4. Knead dough in the bowl, or on a work surface, for 100 presses.
  5. Cover the dough with oiled cling film and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour.
  6. Oil a baking tray or line it with parchment.
  7. Knead the dough for another 100 presses then shape it into a large ball.
  8. Put the dough on the prepared tray, cover with oiled cling film and leave it to rise in a warm place for 25 minutes. 
  9. Pre-heat the oven.
  10. Remove the cling film and bake for 35-40 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  11. Leave to cook on a wire rack.
