30 ml

40 g

Wholemeal flour


Active dried yeast

Lukewarm water



Wheatgerm milk, to glaze

Method :
  • Warm the flour and salt in a bowl in the oven at its lowest setting for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the yeast with half of the water and leave to dissolve.
  • Make a central well in the flour. Pour in the yeast mixture, the remaining water, honey, oil and wheatgerm. Stir from the centre until smooth.
  • Grease a 23 x 13cm loaf tin. Knead the dough just enough to shape into a loaf. Put it in the tin and cover with a plastic bag.
  • Leave in a warm place until the dough is about 2.5cm higher than the tin rim, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 200oC / 400oF / Gas 6. Brush the loaf with milk, and bake until base sounds hollow when tapped, about 35-40 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
