A couple of months ago, my dad went to Vancouver and spent a whole day in Coquitlam's gigantic - and I mean GIGANTIC - Ikea store. He was very impressed with the cafeteria there, and he also really enjoyed the food selection for sale that you could bring home & prepare yourself. He bought three copies of the Ikea cookbook - one for me, him, and my SIL, and he also brought me back a package of Lingonberry bread mix. He was attracted to this item because the ingredients were right up his alley: no white flour whatsoever, full of seeds, and nice and wholesome-looking.
I finally got around to making this bread on the weekend for a family dinner. Basically, it was a just add water deal, with the yeast in a separate package attached to the bag of mix. All I did was chuck everything in my mixer, develop the dough, let it rise, shape, rise, and bake.
Incidentally, this bread mix is Danish, not Swedish!
Anyway, this is what I got:
I was a very tasty, crusty loaf, actually, but I thought the mix was pretty chintzy on the lingonberry angle; there were barely any berries in it and they didn't add anything to the flavour at all, which was disappointing. But it was a nice loaf and Dad was pretty happy. The mix made two loaves, so he got one and so did I.
I have yet to use any recipes from the Ikea cookbook...
