Orange Wheatloaf Recipe

Ingredients : Makes 450g loaf

275 g

2.5 ml

25 g

25 g

1/2 sachet

1/2

Wholemeal plain flour

Salt

Butter

Soft light brown sugar

Easy-blend dried yeast

Orange, grated rind and juiced

Method :
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl and return any wheat flakes from the sieve. Add the salt and rub in the butter lightly with your fingertips.
  • Stir in the sugar, yeast and orange rind. Pour the orange juice into a measuring jug and use hot water to make up to 200ml (the liquid should not be more than hand hot).
  • Stir the liquid into the flour and mix to a soft ball of dough. Knead gently on a lightly floured surface until quite smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a greased 450g loaf tin and leave in a warm place until nearly doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 220oC/425oF/Gas 7.
  • Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes, or until it sounds hollow when tapped underneath.
  • Tip out of the tin and cool on a wire rack.
