Quick and easy, delicious multi grain loaf. Perfect even for beginners in bread making. Recipe comes from bbcgoodfood.com. If you have never made bread before, read 'How to make a perfect loaf?' in my baking tips HERE.
- 500g wholemeal (or mixed grain) bread flour
- 2tbsp linen seeds
- 1tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1tbsp poppy seeds
- 7g dried yeast
- 1tsp salt
- 300ml warm water
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 1tbsp clear honey
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a jug combine all of the wet ingredients and pour into the dry mixture. Mix to form a soft dough, then knead on a floured surface until smooth and stretchy.
Place the dough in a large bowl and leave to rise for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Knead the dough quickly and shape into a loaf (or place in a 1.2 litre loaf tin), cover with a cloth and leave for about 20 minutes.
Pre-heat the oven to 190C and place a small tray with boiling water on the bottom of the oven to create steam.
With a sharp knife make few slashes across the top and brush with water, you can also sprinkle some seeds on top if you like.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes, the loaf it ready then tapped on the bottom makes hollow sound. Take out the oven and leave to cool before cutting.
