Basic Malted Loaf

This easy recipe for a half and half malted brown loaf will become your to go recipe whenever you make bread.
Servings: 1 loaf
Prep Time2 hrs 30 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time3 hrs 10 mins

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
