KALAALIIT KAAGIAT – An Experiment!

This recipe comes from Greenland, and it is an experiment.  (I will let you know how it turns out).  In the meantime, this recipe is for a suit bread yeast bread with raisins and I am going to make it this afternoon.  Will report on that also.

KALAALLIT KAAGIAT

100 grams sugar

100 grams raisins

100 grams butter

1/4 litre boiling water

20 grams dried yeast

500 grams flour

1 tablespoon milk

Optional topping:  2 tablespoons icing sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cardamom

Add the sugar, raisins, butter and boiling water to a large bowl.  Combine, and stir occasionally until the butter has all melted.  Dissolves the yeast in a small amount of lukewarm water.  Add the yeast and flour to the raisin mixture and combine thoroughly.  Set aside to stand for an hour.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C, and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.  Knock back (punch) the dough, knead for a couple of minutes (it will be very wet and sticky), then arrange the dough in the middle of the baking sheet.  Leave the loaf to rise in a warm place for 10 to 15 minutes, brush the top with milk, then bake for 35 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.

To serve as “cake”, mix cardamom powder into icing sugar, and dust onto the top of the cake after cooling.
