Now that Christmas with its feast of treats and tastes is but a distant memory and your ‘dry January’ or ‘Veganuary’ is wearing thin, how about introducing a bit of healthy luxury into your breakfast, lunch or tea with a slice of Dark Malt bread? For the avoidance of doubt, the bread bears no resemblance to the Malt Loaf many of you learned about on the BBC programme Inside the Factory which we featured on. By the way, thanks for all the kind comments – we thought the mill showed itself well and were very pleased with the results!
Inspired by our Dutch friends at The Friendship Mill in Weesp, The Netherlands, we blend a number of flours, seeds and malt products to create a dark, malty flour filled with goodness and depth of taste, but equally producing a light aerated crumb (as you can see below).
The dark colour of the crumb is a lovely surprise and it makes toast to die for… you will be reaching for the smoked salmon or lathering it with Nutella – it works well with both sweet and savory toppings; we hope not on the same piece of toast!
