barley bread

I have arthritic wrists, so I generally do my bread with the dough hook on the Kitchenaid.  This dough defeated it and I had to finish it by hand - ouch.  Be warned :)

It makes a really nice textured loaf.

7g dried yeast
2 tablespoons double cream
225ml warm water

175g barley flour
175g wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon salt

Cream the yeast with the double cream and warm water.

Combine the flours and salt, and make a well in the centre, and add the yeast/cream/water mixture.  Knead for eight minutes.

Cover the bowl with oiled clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm place for 1.5 hours.

Knock back, form into a round, and place on an oiled baking tray to rise for a further hour.

Bake at gas 7 for 25 minutes.
