Prep Time2 hrs
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time2 hrs 40 mins


  • 100 ml milk
  • 145 ml water - lukewarm
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 2 tbs oil - rapeseed or similar
  • 200 g strong white bread flour
  • 150 g strong brown bread flour
  • 140 g grated root vegetables - Grated finely. I used a mix of carrot and parsnip and swede.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp butter - to grease bread tin


  • Add the yeast to water and milk and whisk in until dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and bring together to a rough and shaggy dough.
  • Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until stretchy and pliable. Place the dough back in the bowl, and cover.
  • Allow to rise for hour or so, until light and puffy, and doubled in size.
  • Knock back and form into a loaf shape. Transfer to a greased loaf tin, cover, and leave to proof, for another hour or so.
  • Bake at 200°C/Gas mark 6 for 40 minutes. It's done when it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
