REAL BREAD MACHINE LOAF
Pan sizes vary. This recipe is for a medium-sized pan.
- 500g Flour (wholemeal or a mix of white and wholemeal)
- 5g Salt
- 350g Water
- 5g Dried yeast (or 10g fresh yeast, or 3g easy-blend yeast)
- 15g Butter or olive oil (optional � makes bread slightly softer)
Unless your machine's instructions say otherwise, pour the water into the loaf pan and, if you are using it, add the fresh yeast. Disperse the salt in the flour and then sprinkle this over the water. If you are using dried or instant yeast and/or butter or oil, place them - not touching each other - on top of the flour. Secure the pan in the machine, close the lid and press the start button.
Follow any other instructions and prompts that may be required by your machine's instruction manual.
When your loaf is baked, let it cool (hot bread is less easily digested). Slice with a sharp knife and enjoy the flavour and texture of Real Bread made with simple ingredients and no additives. Enjoy!
