Bread-making may seem like a daunting task, but I can assure you that this Pumpkin Millet Sandwich Bread is about as easy as they come. If you’ve never made bread before, this is a great recipe to start with; it’s straightforward, fits neatly into the no-knead category, and yields a hearty, whole grain loaf that still manages to be perfectly moist on the inside. (Sorry if you hate that word!) If you’re a seasoned bread-baker, then perhaps you’ll appreciate this different take on your weekly loaf. It may not be light and airy like a classic sourdough, but it’s also not dense like you might expect with a whole-grain loaf. Rather, it sits perfectly in the middle with a satisfying chew to the crumb.
This bread might be one might be one of my favourites when it comes to level of ease, even if it isn’t the prettiest loaf to look at. What’s more, the pumpkin flavour is very subtle, making it perfect for for snacking on with butter, nut butter, or jam, or topping with your favourite meat/veggies/cheese to create the perfect sandwich. I recommend slathering it with ricotta cheese, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkling of sea salt when it’s still warm from the oven. Glorious!
