I am not going to go by "quatre chemins" (literally straight to the point): this bread is one of the easiest to make. I must thank Nigella Lawson for it.
Because it is so easy and quick to make, so should be the recipe.
A vos marques!
To make this 1, 2, 3 mix, bake and eat bread loaf you'll need:
200g of sugar free muesli (I use Alpen Muesli)
325g of wholemeal bread flour
1 x 7g sachet of fast action bread yeast
1 tsp of sea salt
250ml of semi-skimmed milk
250ml of water
In a large bowl mix together the muesli with the flour, the yeast and the salt.
Add the milk and water and stir. The mixture should be the same consistency as thick porridge.
Pour the mixture to a greased bread loaf tin and place in a cold oven.
Turn the oven on to 110ºC/ gas mark 1/4 and leave to cook for 45minutes.
Once these first 45 minutes are up, turn up the heat to 180ºC/ gas mark 4 leave to cook for 1 hour.
Remove the cake out of the tin (being careful not to burn your hands) and give it a little knock underneath: it should sound hollow. If it doesn't, put back in the oven for a few extra minutes.
I love this bread for breakfast with a good dollop of butter and some jam (marmalade or raspberry especially). Nutella also works well.
This one is for Victoria. So easy you don't have any excuse not to make it. x
