In honour of the Great Surrey Menu for Surrey Day 2022, Laura Scott has created a delicious bread that also celebrates another Surrey favourite - Crumbs Brewing Rye Coffee Porter
unsalted local butter
fine sea salt
Crumbs Brewing Rye Coffee Porter
- Measure the flour, salt, treacle and butter into the bowl of a food mixer with a dough hook attachment.
- Place the porter and water into a measuring jug and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
- Pour the liquid into the flour mixture and combine to form a rough ball of dough in the food mixer on a low to medium speed setting.
- Continue to knead the dough for between 5-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and pliable.
- After reading the dough, cover it with a tea towel or some cling film and leave it to prove for between 1.5-2 hours.
- When the dough has doubled in size, knock it back and knead it for one minute.
- Shape the dough into a rectangle and place it into a 500g (2lb) loaf tin which has been coated in butter.
- Cover the dough with a tea towel or some cling film and allow the dough to prove for another hour.
- When the dough is ready to bake place it in a pre-heated oven (200 degrees), dust with flour and bake for 35 minutes. When it’s cooked, remove it from the tin and put it onto a cooling rack. Serve with some local salted butter and toppings of your choice. It’s especially good with pate, smoked fish or a local Surrey cheese board.
