Fjelbrod - Norwegian Yeast 100%  #WholeGrain Quickbread

It’s time for #FoodoftheWorld and this time we are going to Norway. Who else watches the Scandinavian cooking show on PBS TV? I love that he always cooks outdoors among the fjords with reindeer and cows grazing in the background. There is much similarity between Scandinavian countries so I was a little challenged to find a recipe. Cardamom is the spice of choice for sweets in Scandinavia so I was going to do their Cardamom Cake, but then I realized except for a very slight change, it is pretty much the same as the Finnish Cardamom Cake I have posted here. Then I was going to do some pancakes but since I already have these Finnish Spinach Pancakes posted, what else was there to make? I am not a big fan of their love of smoked fish. I then went on a bread search and most of their breads are rye breads…again, not a big fan. I then found this bread with just a wee bit of rye flour, I thought this was right up my alley. I wasn’t mistaken. This bread is delicious, healthy, 100% #wholegrain and quick to get done with no rising time!

Everybody loves fresh bread right…but all that kneading…all that waiting for bread to rise…what if you could have a soft and healthy whole grain bread in under 2 hours? Well, you can…thanks to Norway. This bread has become popular in the blogosphere thanks to Nigella Lawson, who calls it Norwegian Mountain Bread. However, Fjelbrod is it’s Norwegian name. This rustic, whole grain bread is soft and moist and surprisingly not as dense as I had anticipated.

It’s perfect with some soft butter or to compliment your breakfast.
