Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Happy New Year!
Hope it’s merry and peaceful for all of you!
Today’s recipe is an amazing homemade multi seed bread.

It’s perfect for dipping into yummy soups. I love it with my pumpkin soup but you can have it with whatever you’d like.
I love the smell of bread cooking in the oven. Can you imagine if there was a candle with this smell? That would be awesome!:-)
So the specific thing about this bread is that I used lard when making it.
That’s actually the secret ingredient.
It might sound not so yummy, but believe me its one of the best recipe for simple homemade bread.

  2. In a mixing bowl, place the flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Mix well.
  3. Add the 4 eggs and milk and mix again.
  4. Add half of the lard and make a smooth dough. If necessary, add more flour.
  5. Cover with cling film and leave to rest for about 1 hour. It should double its size.
  6. When ready, divide the dough into 13 -14 equal bowls.
  7. Roll them out and tie them as if you make a knot.
  8. Grease a baking tray with some of the lard and place the balls. Egg wash them with the egg yolk. Sprinkle with the seeds. Pour over the rest of the lard. Leave for another 30 minutes to rest.
  9. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes or until ready.
  10. Serve hot!


Tip: Cover with a tea towel when ready. Thus, the bread will stay nice and soft.
