This is a bread that takes me back to my childhood, so it is definitely a comfort food. I have attached a picture of the recipe so you can try it yourself. Of course, I used a plant based milk and also organic flour. On the flour I read that it was “unbromated.” I looked that up and I learned why potassium bromate is added to flour which I got from King Arthur Flour’s website. Potassium bromate (KBrO3), is a flour “improver” that strengthens dough and allows for greater oven spring and higher rising in the oven. However, also learned this from Integrative Mom:
…..potassium bromate is an additive used in most commercial flour and baked goods. It’s cheap to add this toxin that creates stronger dough, and helps bread rise higher and look whiter. It’s also a human carcinogen.
That’s right, it causes cancer.
So, I learned something new as I made this bread today. Look for flour that is unbromated for the healthiest results. I have been eating this bread all week and believe me, it is delicious. I didn’t miss the cancer causing ingredient, lol.
This is such an easy bread to make because you raise it once and it does not require kneading. I hope you give this bread a try. Let me know how you like it. Click the button below to watch the video on my You Tube channel. The recipe is below the video.
