As the bottom temperature is barely round 100° Celsius / 212° Fahrenheit, the baking course of takes about 24 hours. The delicate temperature is the rationale why the bread will prove crustless, which is sweet for me, as I don’t actually like crust.

You probably have the prospect to style heat Icelandic Rúgbrauð subsequent time you might be in Iceland, accomplish that with some recent salmon or salted butter, which I appreciated the very best. And don’t neglect to top off on Rúgbrauð earlier than heading again dwelling – because the bread is made within the geothermal energetic floor, you in all probability gained’t have the prospect to bake one your self.
