Lois' wholemeal seeded bread

    3 hours 5 min

    A delicious wholemeal loaf that my children love. It has part wholemeal, part white flour to make it light. Best in a breadmaker set on medium brown. Makes a 1 1/2 lb loaf. The seeds give it a lovely nutty texture too. My children enjoy making this bread as the ingredient quantities is easy to follow.

    Soft, moist and well risen loaf. Will certainly make again. Thanks.  -  17 Jan 2011


    Dead-easy and simple recipe :D I baked it in a pre-heated oven on low heat (gas mark 3)), and I used regular flour (mixed plain flour & self-raising flour). Result: Nice bread with a brown crust on the outside and soft & spongy inside.. Lovely! I also added plenty of sunflower seeds in the dough, and 2-3 tbs olive oil on the top just before I put it in the oven.  -  23 Feb 2015


    Great all purpose loaf. Slices well for sandwiches and makes lovely toast. Perfect size for my bread maker which only bakes a 400 gram loaf.  -  06 Nov 2013
