Golden Wholegrain Loaf

A lighter, milder flavoured loaf, with all the goodness of the whole wheat grain. Popular even with those who aren’t fans of traditional wholemeal bread!

Preparation method

Preparation time: 15 minutes plus proving time
Baking time: Small loaves 20 - 25 minutes; large loaf 30 – 35 minutes

Makes 2 small loaves or 1 large loaf

METHOD – baking by hand
1. Grease the bread tin(s).Place the flour, salt, yeast and fat into a large mixing bowl. Mix the fat through the flour and make a well in the centre of the flour mixture.
2. Add most of the water to the well, keeping a little in reserve, and mix to a soft dough. Add the remaining water if necessary.
3. Tip the dough onto a table and knead for 8 to 10 minutes.
4. Place the dough back into the bowl and cover with oiled cling film or a damp tea towel. Rest in a warm place until the dough doubles in size. This will take approximately 45 minutes.
5. Split the dough into two pieces if desired. Mould the dough round and fold to the shape of the tin(s). Place the dough piece into the tin, seam down, cover with oiled cling film or a damp tea towel. Put in a warm place and allow to rise about 1cm above the tin. This will take 45 to 60 minutes.
6. Uncover and bake in a preheated oven, 220°C fan/240°C/430°F/Gas 8. Bake small loaves for 20-25 minutes or a large loaf for 30-35 minutes.
7. Remove the loaf from the tin. Check it is baked by tapping the bottom of the loaf - it should sound hollow. Place on a wire rack to cool.
