Polar bread - swedish flat bread

Healthy bread and a kids favourite!


50 grams butter
5 dl water (500ml)
50 grams of fresh yeast, or 1 tbslp dry yeast
3 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp salt
5 dl rye flour (500ml)
11 dl wheat flour (500ml)


Step 1

Melt butter, add water and warm until 37 degrees C, is using fresh yeast, about 45 degrees or little more, if using dry yeast. Pour the liquid into a bowl, add yeast, and let it dissolve. Add golden syrup and salt and stir. Add most of the flour and work the dough until smooth and a little shiny. By hand, about 20 minutes. The dough should not stick to the edges of your bowl when you've worked it enough. Sprinkle some flour on top, cover with a kitchen towel, and set aside and let it rise to double the size, about 30 minutes.

Step 2

Heat oven at 275 degrees C. Place oven paper on several baking plates. Divide the dough into 20 pieces. Form to round balls and then use a rolling pin to flatten your breads on a floured baking table. Prick your Polar Breads using a fork and place onto baking plates. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Bake in the middle of your oven for about 3-5 minutes. Let them cool on a rack, covered with a kitchen-towel.
