Ingredients
  • 300 g whole meal flour
  • 300 g malted white bread flour
  • 400 g lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp dried instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients to a mixing machine. Using the dough hook, knead at a low to medium speed for eight minutes. Or, if not using a mixing machine, mix the ingredients and then knead on the countertop for 10 minutes, until smooth and pliable.

  2. Remove the mixing bowl from the machine, or place the dough in a large bowl, cover (a disposable shower cap is perfect), and place in a warm location (near a radiator) for about an hour, until the dough has doubled in size.

  3. Using a spatula or scraper, get the dough out of the bowl and roll into a cylinder shape the size of your loaf tin. Butter the loaf tin, and place the dough in it.

  4. Cover the tin with a plastic bag or shower cap and put it somewhere warm, but not hot, for a second raise for about 45 minutes.
  5. Place in a pre-heated oven at 220°C for 40 minutes. The loaf is cooked when it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
