Makes: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 450 g (16 oz) wholemeal or white bread flour
  • 385 g (13½ oz) lukewarm water or milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
Instructions
  1. Add the sugar and yeast into the water, mix and leave for 10 minutes for the yeast to activate.
  2. Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the yeast/water mixture and mix well to achieve a smooth, sticky dough.
  3. Lightly grease a 21cm x 11cm (8½" x 4½") loaf tin and pour the mixture in. Spread the dough out with a spoon, cover and leave in a warm place for about an hour.
  4. Once the dough starts to rise above the level of the loaf tin bake at 180°C/360°F fan oven, 200°C/395°F conventional oven for 35 minutes.
  5. Remove from the loaf tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Notes
For the wholemeal loaf you can add a little extra flavour by using a dark brown sugar such as Muscovado sugar.

The loaves freeze well so you can make several at once if you have enough loaf tins!
