Muesli Sourdough Loaf

Muesli is an easy source of wholegrain and dried fruit, used to add flavour and interest to this delicious sourdough loaf of bread
Servings: 14 slices
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time40 minutes
Total Time8 hours


  • 150 ml water - lukewarm
  • 150 ml milk - lukewarm
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 80 g sourdough leaven - ripe - refreshed 12 hours before you start making the loaf
  • 200 g strong white bread flour
  • 200 g strong brown bread flour
  • 80 g Muesli


  • 12 hours before you start breadmaking, refresh your sourdough starter to your preferred ratios. I use equal quantities of old starter, rye flour and water.
  • Keep aside a few ml of the water and milk mixture, and add the salt. Whisk the ripe leaven into the remaining leaven, then add the rest of the ingredients: flour and muesli.
  • When risen turn out onto a floured worktop, fold in the muesli (reserving a little to sprinkle the loaf with) then place in to an oiled 1lb loaf tin, sprinkle with the reserved muesli. Leave to rise again for an hour.
  • Bake at GM6 / 200C / 400F for about 40 mins, until starting to brown. When cooked the loaf will sound hollow when tapped. Turn out and cool on a wire rack.
