Kokottebrød med ramløg - Kokotte bread with ramson
This bread has also been a bit of a challenge for me ! Actual to be able to find all the right ingredients. Besides from the obvious ingredients like flour (spelt), yeast, salt, water and oil, I also needed to get hold of hazelnuts (easy task). But these two ingredients ramson (wild herb growing in the forest during spring time or as dried herb in a shop) and a beer called Nutty Brown from Ørbæk brewery, were something of a challenge.
I managed to find dried ramson after phoning the manufacturer of the herb and looking into more than 3 of the mentioned supermarkets.
I believed, that to buy the mentioned beer in the recipe would be like a walk in the park !!! However, I decided to check the mentioned beer type with a brew master at work before going shopping Thursday afternoon.
And am I glad, that I did that ??? YES !!!! Because Nutty Brown was impossible to buy in the supermarket. So based on the brew master's recommendation I brought an ale beer instead of from the same brewery called RED. An ale will have less rest sugar after brewing compared to a stout beer and therefore bring less sweetness.
It is the first time, that I have used beer in bread making. And it was quiet funny to see all the foam in the mixing bowl.
I also decided to use baking paper in the clay form instead of oiling the form. I clearly remember my difficulties in getting the Frederiksgård Frokostbrød out in one piece off the baking form.
The rowing friends really liked the bread :-)
