Delicious bread is a treat! Even though a bakery is on every corner when you live in Germany, we enjoy our bread home made as well. Like this, you can be the boss about the ingredients and calorie count of your bread. This recipe is short on wheat, salt and no sugar is added - and we promise it is still delicious. What we love most about this basic bread recipe is that you can spice it up not with not only some tasty insects but also all sorts of ingredients such as olives, raisins, sun-dried tomatoes or blended beet root (adds a cute colour to it as well).

If you have no experience with baking bread yet, this is definitely a good recipe to start with! If you have more experience, spice it up your way.
