Chickpea and Peppercorn Bread
Page 404 in the Bread and Bread Machine Bible
I like to call this "Landmine Loaf", as the peppercorns give an explosion of taste every now and then.
- 200ml Water
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 125 g Chickpeas
- 375 g White Bread Flour
- 7 g Peppercorns soaked in brine
- 15 ml Milk Powder
- 1½ tsp Sugar
- 1 tsp Yeast
Add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed.
Start the machine on normal/basic setting.
Optionally brush the top of the loaf just before the bread starts to bake.
The original recipe calls for 7g of green peppercorns and 7g of pink peppercorns. I only had black, and due to a mix up, I only added 7g in total, but this seemed plenty.
I assume the peppercorns should be soaked for quite some time to soften them. After a couple of hours of soaking, the were still quite hard :-(
I missed out the Milk Powder, but it tasted fine none the less. Maybe I'll replace some of the water with milk next time.
