Lingonberry Bread


A simple recipe for lingonberry (or cranberry) multi-seeded bread perfect for the breadmaker.

Similar to the premix box sod by IKEA (1350 kJ / 320 cal per 100 gram), produced in Denmark by Finax. To which you add yeat and water, Mix, rise and bake.

This bread recipe is adapted from one of my all time favourite cook books, “Tillfällen att njuta en liten smula” by Therese Wikström from Danmark.
