Muddy Bread

I saw this recipe the other day whilst I was checking out Photograzing and the name of the bread led me to check it out... The description the blogger made about it was just simply so enticing that I HAD to try this recipe. It was a very good bread, and I did eat an entire loaf by myself... the rest was shared between Anne-Claire and Charles who thought the bread was good too. My only comment about this bread is that it tastes a bit like brioche and is a bit too sweet, so next time ill work on making it with more salt! You should try it - it definitely is worth it!


  • 2 ½ cups warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pakage dry yeast (2 packages may be used on a cold day)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 2 ½ Tablepoons of melted butter
  • 5 ½ cups unsifted flour (the original recipe calls for 6 cups, I found that I needed less)
  1. Stir into 2 ½ cups warm water, 2 Tablespoons sugar and yeast.  Let mixture set 5 to 15 minutes.
  2. Then, add the sugar, salt and butter. Mix well and add the flour, cup by cup until you reach a dough like mixture. Work by hand towards the end, it will be MUCH easier. 
  3. Put the bread on a floured table and start kneading the bread for about 10 minutes (tiring, but watch a movie or something!)
  4. Place the dough in a ball into a large greased bowl and brush the top of the top with melted butter. Cover and let the dough rise for about an hour and half. 
  5. Once this done, divide the dough in two and put them in previously greased pans and butter the top again. Cover and let rise again for an hour and half. 
  6. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F and bake the breads for 15 minutes at 375 and 20 minutes at 275 F. 
  7. Remove from the oven and lift off from the pans and brush the entire bread with melted butter ( i found that melted salted butter did the trick!). 
  8. Enjoy!

* Thank you to the runaway spoon for this wonderful recipe!
