Ballymaloe brown bread
Ballymaloe brown bread - using the French setting and recipe

Ballymaloe brown bread was The Ballymaloe House Hotel's version of Doris Grant's no-knead bread, introduced in her book "Your Daily Bread".

I've found that with all brown or wholemeal flour bread recipes, half a vitamin C tablet (ascorbic acid) crushed between two tablespoons (about 100 mg) and added to the flour, seems to prevent a heavy, poorly risen loaf. It has an effect on Glutathione (Wikipedia) which has an affect on the the elasticity of the dough.

It has a bitter-sweet toffee flavour, almost like a sweet malt bread.

This is my version which has additional rye flour and is adapted to suit a bread making machine.

French setting and recipe

JuliaBalbilla experimented with this recipe and made a very successful Ballymaloe Brown Bread loaf using the following recipe and French Bake setting on her Panasonic SD-255.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Place all of the ingredients in the bread maker in the above order.
  2. Panasonic SD-253/4/5 bread maker.
  3. Set to French Bake (6 hours)
  4. Use menu 08 French bake (6 hour) on Panasonic SD-ZB2502 automatic breadmaker
  5. Remove as soon as baked and cool on a wire rack.

Notes

If you don't have a gluten free bake setting, look for a fairly short knead and rest time with a long bake time. I found with other settings, the bread would rise extremely well, but after being knocked down (by the breadmaker), it never managed to rise again properly. The failures make brilliant breadcrumbs though!
