BRÖDMIX FLERKORN: A REVIEW
If you’ve been longing to bake a multigrain loaf (but you just can’t be arsed) then look no further. IKEAs BRÖDMIX FLERKORN is super easy to make and you literally just add water!
The packet costs £2.45/€3.60 and according to instructions should take roughly 1 hr 45 mins total in prep and baking time. Though, this wasn’t the case for me haha.
Ingredients: wheat flour (21%), wheat flakes (20%), rye flakes (17%), coarse rye flour (13%), sunflower kernels (8%), wheat starch, linseed (6%), malt (4%) (from barley), sourdough powder (rye flour), salt, dried yeast.
- Start by vigorously shaking the packet. This is so the flour, seeds and grains are consistently mixed together
- Cut across the top of the packet and add 600ml of water, then shake again to mix it all together
This part got slightly messy; the water began to seep out of the packet, so I stopped shaking it and just mixed the rest together with a wooden spoon
- Tip the mixture into a bowl, cover and allow to rest for 45 mins
- Grease a bread tin
I used a rosemary olive oil which gave the bread a nice herby hum (hum?). I’d recommend using a flavoured oil
- Tip the mixture into the tin
- Place into the bottom of the oven at 200ºc for 60 mins
After 60 mins my loaf was still a bit moist underneath. I removed it from the tin, turned it upside down onto a tray and put it back in the oven for 20 mins to harden up
Once cooled it’s delicious with a layer of Lurpak topped with sundried tomatoes. I’ve been having this for my breakfast and as a snack.
