Bread Recipes


I’ve been experimenting with home-baked bread of late, and have been trying some recipes that haven’t worked out so well. So, now I’ve found a good recipe, I figured I’d put it somewhere that I can find it.

Simple Wholemeal Loaf

500g wholemeal bread flour
7g sachet dried yeast
1.5 tsp salt
175 ml tepid milk
175 ml tepid water
  1. Mix together the flour, yeast and salt, and add the milk and water. Mix to form a soft dough, adding a little more water if it seems too dry.
  2. Lightly flour a surface, and turn the dough out onto it. Knead for ~10 minutes until the dough is smooth, and elastic.
  3. Grease a loaf tin (well!), and pop the dough into it. Cover with a tea-towel, or greased clingfilm, and leave aside for 1-1.5hrs to rise.
  4. Brush with milk, and dust with flour, then bake in an oven at 220 degrees C, for ~15 minutes until pale golden. Leave to cool.
I found that it worked out pretty well, and wasn’t too heavy!
