Here’s an easy to follow recipe for adding marijuana to one of the most versatile of all foods, bread! You’ll be able to use this special bread for sandwiches, as a side, or even as an appetizer and it is perfect at home for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! The cooking process involves decarbing your marijuana and does take some time so you’ll want to plan well in advance for this baked treat. Check out the video instructions below for those that prefer to learn visually or, if you’re like me, just enjoy good cooking videos in general. This will be one time when you won’t have any issue with filling up on bread alone!
5g of marijuana flowers that have been de-stemmed and deseeded
3 cups of all purpose flour (2 cups of white flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour, the wheat flour is optional)
Cornmeal/ wheat germ/ flaxseed meal, for dusting
1 and 1/4th teaspoon salt
1/4th teaspoon active dry yeast
1 and 3/4th cup of non scalding warm water
Oven safe ramekin
Metal pan with lid or Dutch oven
Firstly grind the marijuana flowers into a coarse mealy consistency. Make sure all stems and seeds have been removed. Put the marijuana in the ramekin and cover the top tightly with aluminium foil to seal it. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees and put the ramekin in for 1 hour. At the end of an hour take it out and you will have decarboxylated active marijuana. If you have earlier prepared decarboxylated marijuana you can directly use that in your recipe.
The next step is to prepare the flour mix. Mix the flours, salt, yeast and marijuana in a bowl using a whisk. Then add the warm water (110 degrees) to the flour and mix it well. It will form a shaggy sort of dough. This is the time when the yeast will develop in the dough. Cover the bowl with cling film and keep it in a warm spot of about 76 to 80 degrees overnight for at least 12 to 16 hours for the dough to rise to double its size. You know your dough is ready once you see small bubbles on top of it.
Next put the dough on a clean well floured surface and put some flour on your hands too. Start folding the dough two or three times to form a ball. Place the ball with the seams facing down on a good coating of flaxseed mealor whichever meal you are using for dusting. Put some of it on top of the dough as well and put it in a cotton cloth and cover it lightly. Keep it aside to rise for 2 more hours.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees about 30 minutes before you are ready to bake the bread. Put the Dutch oven or metal pan in the oven to heat as well. When the dough is ready takethe pan out carefully using oven mitts and put the dough into the pan with the seam side facing up. Cover with the lid and put it in the oven to bake for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes remove the lid off the pan and let the bread bake for about 5 to 10 minutes more. Then take it out and tap the crust of the bread for a distinct hollow sound and you’ll know that your bread is ready. Carefully tip the bread on to a cooling wire rack and let it cool for 2 hours at least. Cut the bread only when has nicely cooled down and it’s ready to be eaten!
