Green Pea Bread Loaf

Green pea flour is not an easy going ingredient. It is mostly used only in making cookies....as far as I know! Other than that I don't think I see much recipes on it.....but I'm lucky enough to have found one bread recipe out from Baking History site, which is made of green pea flour. I am truly honoured to try this recipe out. And here's what I did.

Ingredients :
(A)
2/3 cup  water

(B)
1 cup   warm milk
2 tbsp  honey
1 cup bread flour
1/2 tbsp  yeast

(C)
2 cups  bread flour
1-1/2 tspn  salt
1/2 cup  water
1 egg
2 tbsp  corn oil/butter

Method :
(1) combine ingredients (A) and set aside for 30mins.
(2) combine ingredients (B) and set aside for an hour or till double in size.
(3) then stir ingredient (A), (B) & (C) and mix well, till foam a soft dough.
(4) set dough aside for an hour or till double in size.
(5) once it's ready, place dough onto a slightly floured working table.
(6) knead dough till smooth then roll out flat, next roll it into swiss roll shape.
(7) place rolled dough to a 4x9" pan and set aside for 30-45mins or till nicely rose.
(8) finally, bake at preheated oven 190'C for about 45mins or till nicely brown.
(9) leave cool completely before slicing.

The green pea colour looks simply beautiful. It has a very light & tempting flavour of green pea on it. For vegan blogger, you may omit the egg and replace it with another 30ml of milk/water. Just a reminder, the texture of this bread is more likely to the American style or French style. It's springy & dense....not soft and fluffy. And it's also perfect for making panini. So, what do you think!

  11. Just tried your pea bread: wonderful. I needed to add a lot of flour (maybe 2 cups) to get to a proper kneading consistency, and therefore mine is less green. Next time, I'll reduce the liquid at some point. There WILL be a next time, as it is really good.

  14. Hi Octopusmum,
    First of all, welcome to my humble little space. To your question, yes, it is exactly the green pea powder we used for making cookies. You may use the bread machine but you need to follow the quantity & size as given by the machine description.
    Enjoy & have fun !
    Blessings, Kristy
