5 stars from 1 rating of Spanisy Rye Bread

When, during the Spanish Civil War, people had nothing to eat ... How could celebrate Christmas if there was almost nothing to eat? As people ate rye bread, also called "bread of kings".

Formerly, the bread was baked the hearth of the fireplace, covered by sheets of vegetables.

Cook Time

Cook time: 2 hours
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: x


  • 2 kg millet flour
  • 500 gr Rye flour
  • 1 jar water, warm
  • 1 pinch cinnamon, ground
  • 1 pinch anise, ground
  • 1 jar Figs, dried
  • 1 jar risins
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 pinch Sugar


  1. Mix 500 gr of millet flour with 150 grams of fresh yeast, a pinch of salt and a splash of vinegar. Knead the mixture with warm water (which supports flour). Make a ball of dough, cover with a cloth and keep in a cool, dry place. Separate the dough a little, to use as ferment in another time.
  2. In a bowl, pour the rest of millet flour and a pinch of salt. Pour warm water little by little, and while you're kneading (kneading until the dough does not stick to your hands). Add the ferment prepared in step 1 and pour rye flour gradually.
  3. Pour the crushed anise, chopped nuts, sugar, cinnamon, raisins and figs. Knead well until you can work the dough without sticking hands.
  4. Sprinkle a little flour on top. Draw, hands, cross over dough. For this Christmas bread was considered sacred and people should bless it. Cover the bowl with a cloth, put in a warm place and let the dough rise.
  5. When the dough has doubled in size, it's time to break it. Make a few balls on the size you want. Put the dumplings on vegetables or reed sheets and crush them until they are like a cake than 3 fingers high. Sprinkle with flour cakes. Redo a cross with the hands and bake until browned.
