Brown Bread

I have posted this recipe following my niece's request. I hope this will initiate her into baking bread at home!
I will post a picture pretty soon !


Wholewheat flour    500 gms
Dry Yeast                    7 gms
Salt                           1 tsp.
Clear Honey             1 Tbsp.
Olive Oil                   2 Tbsp.


  1. Take  a large bowl . Add the flour,yeast and salt  into it and  mix together with your hands. 
  2. Stir 300ml warm water with the oil and honey, then stir into the dry ingredients to make a soft dough.
  3. Place the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead for 5 mins, until the dough no longer feels sticky, sprinkling with a little more flour if you need it.
  4. Oil a loaf tin and put the dough in the tin, pressing it in evenly. Put in a large plastic food bag and leave to rise for 1 hr, until the dough has risen to fill the tin and it no longer springs back when you press it with your finger. ( Alternatively, you can divide the dough and roll  into small balls and lay them on a baking tray , cover with a moist kitchen towel or cling film and leave to rise for an hour.) The dough might rise quicker in warm and moist conditions.
  5. Heat oven to 200 C . 
  6. Scour across the top of the loaf with a sharp knife, then bake for 30-35 mins until the loaf is risen and golden. ( For smaller breads, it will take much shorter time. Keep an eye after 18-20 minutes.)
  7. Tip it out onto a cooling rack and tap the base of the bread to check it is cooked. It should sound hollow. Leave to cool.
