Dark bread in turkey

Hey guys,

I love turkish food and feel very comfortable trying new stuff all the time. But I can't get myself to eat turkish white bread.

So far I was not able to find any alternatives in any super market or local bakery (I'm mostly in Dalyan - Mugla)

They sometimes sell those "not so white" breads, similar to


I'm looking more for something like:


Any experiences where I can find similar bread? Anyone tried to bake one alone? Thanks!

Cheers,
Thomas

Re: Dark bread in turkey

I doubt you'll find one as dark as that.
Have you visited the local bread maker and had a look at the range of products he has.
Our local Micros does a wholemealy type loaf which is good. Not as good as Irish wheaten bread but serves the purpose while in Turkey.
The Turkish whitebread is however very moreish.

Re: Dark bread in turkey

You can get this bread in Fethiye, but that is a bit of a drive for a loaf; my point is that they do it, you just need to find a local supply.

Alternative: breadmaker or find a local who will make it for you.

Re: Dark bread in turkey

Bake your own, we do using a normal kitchen robot with dough hook to mix it, then leave it to rise put in into tins leave to rise again and into a normal oven. We used to have a bread machine but it broke and was more trouble than it was worth anyway:-

You will need:-

1 tsp yeast
2tsp salt (put on opposite side of mixer to yeast)
2 tsp sugar
50g wheat germ
50g Rye flour (Çavdar unu)
100g of Wholewheat flour (kepekli unu)
250g white flour
280ml mixture of water and milk.

Mix in mixer for about 5 mins (in 3 stints so as not to burn out motor)

Leave to rise (longer in winter than summer)
Roll out to fit in bread tins (Note tip here: cut into 4 sections and turn them round 90 degrees before putting in tin don't know why this works but it stops the bread crumbling when you butter it later)
Let it rise again
Put in over preheated to 190degrees C for 40 mins

Afiyet olsun

Re: Dark bread in turkey

You can quite easily make it yourself using the Cavdar (Rye) bread mix or just the Cavdar flour, you can also find brown bread flour in the supermarkets in most towns.

Once in a while it's ok, but it greatly increases chances for diabetes. Couple of people in my family already have it and they are happy if I don't serve any of that white bread when they visit us

I'll look around for Kepek Ekemk, thanks!

If I don't find anything I'll get a baking machine

Thanks guys!

Any bread and carbohydrates are 'bad' if you already have type 2 diabetes.'

Re: Dark bread in turkey

It's not about the carbs it's about how far the insulin spikes up. And white bread lets it jump through the roof right after eating within minutes. Dark bread releases it more gradually throughout the day

Re: Dark bread in turkey

The Karadeniz bakery next to the police station in Ortaca carries a dense, chewy round bread which, although not as dark, is delicious and comes both seeded and unseeded. BabaFirin in Fethiye and Cali's has several very dark breads. They freeze beautifully, so well worth stocking up.
