Pain de campagne

Not sure that this version is very French, as the recipe contained dark beer, Coopers stout to be precise. Who cares, the bread is very tasty.

  2. It includes white, rye and buckwheat flour. I have wanted to try the recipe for ages, and finally found some buckwheat flour at IGA in Huonville.

  5. Hi Ludo, the recipe called for 200g buckwheat, 200g rye, 375g strong white bread flour, 1tbsp honey, 7g dried yeast, 1 cup warm water, 30g melted butter, 2 tsp salt... and 150ml strong dark beer!! It made 2 small loaves. I found it a bit hard but very tasty.
