fluffy bread:

Bread and butter. Even as a small child I loved the simplest dish I can think of, fresh bread with butter. Well, nowadays I make homemade bread and only use plant based butter, but the taste of this classic meal is just incomparable.


  • 400ml lukewarm water
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 180g spelled flour
  • 330g wheat flour
  • dried thyme and dill
  • salt


  • mix the water with the yeast and let it rest for about 7 minutes
  • meanwhile combine all of the dry ingredients and season it with approximately 1 tbsp of each herb and 3 tsp of salt
  • add the water and work the dough with your kitchen aid or your hands (even though I own a pretty cool kitchen machine I prefer to work it with my hands until I reach a thick ball of bread dough)
  • cover the pot with cling film
  • let the dough rest in the warmest room of your flat for 2 hours minimum
  • shift the risen dough into a baking pan of choice
  • cover the top with a little bit of olive oil and add cuttings to the top of the dough
  • bake the bread for about 35 minutes with 180-200 degrees (until it has reached a thick light brown crust)
