Malted Grain Bread

This bread is based on the 'No Fuss" recipe, so it is easy. the end result taste, is more than the components. That is the great thing about making bread. I was looking for a Malt flavored bread so visited the local Brewing shop where they had a variety of Malted grains. With help from the shop owner, i decided on "Brewcraft Malted Grain. (crystal Malt, light)". The grain has been sprouted and the gently crushed. Although this is not apparent.

Set oven 220 o C, place dish with water in bottom of oven.

100g of Malted grain.
420g. of white bread flour, ( I use Laucke bread mix)This has the sugar and salt added.
1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar if just bread flour is used.
2 teaspoons of dried yeast.
300mls of warm water.

Add malted grain to TMX bowl and mill, speed7/10 seconds.
Add remaining ingredients and knead 4 mins.
Let rise in bowl, in warm place, until doubled, That is until it fills the bowl.
Shape into loaf and let rise in tin, until doubled.
slash top and sprinkle with seeds of choice and spray with water.

Bake for 30mins.
remove from tin and bake for a further 10 mins.
Cool on wire rack.
