Recipe: Archipelago bread


Today we introduce you to a true piece of Finnish food culture: bread. Or rather: Archipelago bread. Finland is known for its countless type of bread and even the bread-crazed Germans always happen to find another new kind of bread that they really like. If you want to try and bake this tasty, traditional bread yourself, you're welcome to try the following recipe from Elina's good friends’ mother. It is really easy to make!

Ingredients (for three loaves of bread):

1l apple or orange juice
2 packages of yeast á 70g
3dl syrup
3dl hops
3dl bran or oatmeal or rye flakes
3dl rye flour
1 table spoon salt
11dl wheat flour


  1. Heat up the juice and mix it in a pot with the yeast, syrup, salt, hops, bran, rye and wheat flour.
  2. Butter three baking moulds and fill them with the dough (leave them about 1/3 empty to give the dough space to expand).
  3. Let the dough rise for about an hour and a half until it reaches the brim of the moulds.
  4. Heat up the oven to 175°C (347°F) and bake the dough for an hour and a half at the lowest level of the oven.
  5. After one hour, sprinkle the dough carefully with a mix of water and a bit of syrup.
  6. Take out the bread after the full baking time and let it rest at a cool place for 2-3 days.
