Wholemeal Loaf of Bread (made in the breadmaker)

Wholemeal Bread LoafThis is an easy recipe for a half and half wholemeal/white loaf, that I feel makes for a better homemade loaf than wholemeal alone when using a breadmaker. It will be full of wholemeal goodness, uses as much milk as a milk loaf and yet will be as soft and airy as a white loaf – perfect for children (full of calcium) and adults alike.

 

Ingredients:

  • 200ml of warm milk
  • Hand hot water (enough to make up to 300ml)
  • 225g white bread flour
  • 225g wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 25g softened (or chopped) butter
  • 1 tsp dried yeast

Method:

  1. Add 200ml of warm milk to a measuring jug
  2. Top up to 300ml with hand hot water
  3. Put the liquid into your bread pan
  4. Gently add both the wholemeal and white flour over the liquid in the bread pan (taking care not to let the liquid rise above the flour).
  5. Put the salt, sugar and butter into 3 corners of the bread pan.
  6. Make a small indentation in the flour (taking care not to expose any liquid) and add the yeast to this.
  7. Set the bread maker to medium loaf (or 2lb+ setting), medium crust … often setting 1 on your bread maker. Press start!
  8. Remove from the bread pan from the bread maker soon after it has finished and after a few minutes, transfer the loaf to a wire rack to cool (take care to use a dry tea towel or oven mitts, as the bread pan may still be hot).

Wholemeal Bread Loaf (sliced)*Note: The bread is usually best left to stand to cool before cutting as it may not be firm enough if too hot.

Enjoy!
