Welcome to the villages of KhozOboz! Today we are baking again and not just anything, but Borodino bread, the recipe of which is familiar to everyone from childhood. I must say right away that it goes without saying that in the age of technological progress, it is possible to bake Borodino bread in a bread maker and it will probably be easier, but we still chose the generally available method of baking in the oven. And before proceeding directly to cooking, let's talk a little about who invented this bread, when and, of course, for what purpose. And let's start right now.
As for the origin, ritual baking is considered to be the main one not documented by the theory of its appearance. More precisely, on the site of the Battle of Borodino, where the Savior-Borodino Monastery was once built, caring people organized a bakery. It was in it that they came up with the idea of preparing black memorial bread for those who died in this world-famous battle. The ingredients of the bread were also not accidental - coriander and cumin, for example, personified buckshot and symbolized the spirit of battle.
It is not known exactly whether it is true or not, but there is no smoke without fire, which means that the legend did not invent itself. In the bread itself then and now, in addition to the already mentioned coriander and caraway seeds, other components are also included. So, Borodino bread, composition: rye flour of two types - wallpaper and peeled, wheat flour, sourdough, a little salt, sugar, as well as molasses less familiar to bread dishes. It is she who gives Borodinsky such a seductive sweetness. Homemade Borodino bread is always cooked in dough with the use of tea leaves, but they are baked both in the hearth method and in forms in the form of a brick. No one disputes that it is best to bake it in the oven, but if there is none, then Borodino bread is quite good in the oven, try it and see for yourself.
For the test:
The first thing I want to remember in the context of benefits is the calorie content of Borodino bread. It is not high - only about 200 kcal per 100 g of this wonderful product. And the fact that this bread in preparation does not involve the use of yeast makes it a real treasure at all. It is believed that the products that are used in its composition significantly improve digestion, mainly due to fiber. In general, everything is good in moderation, even if we are talking about a useful product.
Keep this in mind and remember that the optimal serving per day is about 250 grams.
