Kefir Bread


This is an amazing bread if you get an abundance of kefir – which you will if as your grains grow. Simplest bread I’ve ever made and no additives like in so many store bought bread. It’s kind of a sourdough bread where the kefir acts as the leavening agent.

(Easy) Tangy Kefir Bread
4 c. whole wheat flour
salt to taste (about 1 tsp.)
2-1/2 c. kefir whey

Mix all. Let rise till doubled (24-36 hours). Put in pre-heated 375 oven in a greased 3-quart baking dish with a cover (cast iron if you have one). Bake about 1 hour. Really comes out super and you have the added advantage that soaking your grains before cooking gives you!


About TJ

In 2015 my family moved from a small village in mid-Michigan to five beautifully forested acres in Northern Michigan. We love the lakes and rivers, the forests, and the billions of stars we can see in the night sky, as well as the many cultural and historical activities in our area. We also love that the deer and wild turkeys come right up to our house. This is where our hearts are! I have multiple cats (five the last time I counted), and a sweet introverted dog who rarely barks and who deeply loves the six adorable ducks and nine chickens that have become part of our family. I enjoy reading, studying, writing, and learning new things. I also enjoy walking my dog, cuddling my cats, and gardening. I love nature. The world fascinates me.

    • For health reasons, my husband and I have to change our diet. To help me out, my friend sent me this recipe today. She didn’t send a picture, and I haven’t yet made this recipe so I don’t have a picture. I’d like to try this recipe. My friend says it’s really good. I’ll check out your recipe too!
