Rice Bread - Risbrød

Makes 1 loaf

Wash the rice and put it in a saucepan. Add enough boiling water to barely cover the rice. Bring to a boil and cook until the grains are soft. Drain, and while rice is still warm, force it through a sieve. Rub it into the flour immediately before it cools. Use your finger tips and make sure the rice is well distributed through the flour.

Add salt and sugar.

Soften (or dissolve) yeast in 2 tablespoons of the warm milk. Add yeast mixture and remaining milk to other ingredients. Mix well. The dough should be just soft enough to handle.

Knead well on a lightly floured board and place in a greased, floured shallow pan (11×7×2).

Bake in a preheated hot oven (400°) for 1 hour, or until the edges shrink from the sides of the pan.
