Tortoise Shell Bread

Tortoise Shell Bread

This Tortoise Shell Bread was such a pretty bread. It was crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I really enjoyed it toasted with butter and jam on top but it was just a generally delicious bread. Would be great as a sliced bread with dinner as well. You can’t go wrong with this loaf.

Tortoise Shell Bread

2- 2/3 cups of organic flour
1/2 tsp yeast
1 tbsp organic sugar
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 Tbsp Coconut or Olive Oil

Add to your bread machine 9 oz of spring water.  To this add your dry ingredients reserving the yeast. Make a well in the top of the flour and place your yeast there.  Set to dough.

When the cycle ends remove onto your lightly floured countertop and shape it like an oval.  Put onto a greased baking pan and cover with oiled saran wrap and place someplace warm and draft free.  When it has doubled in size (about an hour) preheat your oven to 425F.

Dust the loaf with flour and slash the top with your sharpest knife.  Bake for about 40 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped with a knife on the bottom.

Sit your bread on a wire rack to cool

Enjoy!
