Swedish Limpa Bread


Tuesday, May 9, 2006
It was my turn to bring bread to book club tonight, so I decided to make a Swedish bread in Minneapolis, this very Swedish city. I had doubts about the limpa bread when I mixed it--the combination of molasses, ale, and aniseed seemed odd. In fact, it smelled downright nasty. I didn't like the smell, or the texture, or the color. I really liked nothing at all about this bread. In addition, I undercooked it (in my very unreliable oven, which I hope to replace soon), and ended up returning it to the oven after I checked its temperature. I muttered to myself about how I shouldn't expect anything from a Swedish bread since this is, after all, the land that brought us lutefisk, but I should have had more faith. In fact, the flavor of this bread turns out to be intriguing rather than nasty, and the texture light and solid at the same time. Tomorrow I'll try it toasted for breakfast, but it's a fine dinner bread with nothing more than a slather of butter.

Dear Breadbasketcase, I enjoyed reading all your hilarious baking escapades.
I found your blog from the Rose Levy blogsite.
I've recently been gifted her Cake Bible by my kids. But if I were to try baking one cake a week I'll have to live in a gym to lose all the weight I put on.
Shall be reading your blogs regularly from now on.

Hi there :)
Rose recently let us all know about your blog through her newsletter, and I am really enjoying living vicariously through you :). You have a wonderful blog, and it's great to see you enjoy bread baking so much (I bake bread for a living and people wonder what I see in it--now I can direct them to this blog!). I think we should adapt your Osama Bin Laden comment for a T-shirt :P. I can add it to my collection of other bread inspired shirts: "Got bread?" and "I see bread people!"

Take care!

I am excited to discover this (also from the Rose Newsletter). In fact, it may be fun to make some of the breads you are making at the same time you are. Do you have a schedule? Or is it more spur of the moment.

Why doesn't Rose have a list of the breads? I've been looking for a Limpa recipe and didn't know she had one in the book. It doesn't show up in the index.

Happy Baking!

Lynne,
It would be fun if all of Rose's fans would make the same bread at the same time. Imagine thousands of loaves of Swedish limpa being made at the same time all over the world--it would probably result in some great cosmic force for good. Unfortunately, I don't have a schedule, but I was thinking about baking the monkey bread this weekend.

I love your idea of a collective bake off. I'd be in it. I can't wait for my copy to arrive.

It'd be really interesting to see how the different temperatures and altitudes of where we all lived affected our breads.

I'll have to check for the monkey bread. I made (the King Arthur Swedish Lima) but used Rose's rising/kneading schedule. I also made the White bread (and used half the recipe for the dinner rolls). Your white bread looks beautiful! I think my oven is off --- or else I'm having operator error! :)

here's why i don't have a list of all the breads in the index: the enormously expense indexer--yes this is a special profession--had the weirdest notion of what should be in the index--avoiding all the names of the bread and adding people's names who were mentioned in the headnotes. it was too late to redo in order to get the book out in time for the fall season--publisher have their set of priorities. if you guys buy out the first two printings there's hope for a revised index!
when i was looking for monkey bread in the index--which i seem to remember is listed under brioche type breads rather than its name--i just gave up and looked at the photos as i knew it was one that had been photographed and the page number of the recipe is on the photo--something we learned 7 books back with the first printing of the cake bible! believe me, baking bread or cake, is a lot easier and more gratifying than putting together a book but i can't complain as thanks to this marvelous blog, not to mention my own, i now have the pleasure and evidence of sharing with all of you and the mere thought of my limpa bread floating through blogosphere space gives me goose bumps of joy!
