Emmer and honey sandwich loaf

Emmer and honey sandwich loaf

The mixture of emmer flour with added honey in this dough produces a darker bake with an amazing depth of flavor and a slight sweetness in this sandwich loaf. The dough will be soft and sticky, and you may find it “splodges” into the pan, but it then grows and bakes to a perfect loaf, so do not worry if you find the shaping challenging. It is worth the effort!

Khorasan and Golden Flaxseeds Baby Master Loaf

Khorasan and Golden Flaxseeds Baby Master Loaf

Khorasan adds a nutty flavor to any loaf. If used alone, this flour would create a dense loaf, so it is ideal paired with a lighter flour, as it is here. This creates a smooth, tactile dough to work with and a lovely tasty loaf.
