    This makes a really nice loaf of brown-ish bread in the bread maker which is why I call it tan bread! Tastes great!

    Serves: 3 

    • 400g strong white bread flour
    • 100g brown bread flour
    • 320ml water
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon yeast
    • 25g butter
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 dessertspoon dried milk powder

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:3hr45min  ›  Ready in:3hr55min 

    1. Whisk together the white and brown bread flours. Add water to the bread maker's pan and then some of the mixed flour. Keep adding the other ingredients and remaining flour a little at a time so that the salt, sugar, yeast etc. are well distributed throughout the flour.
    2. Set the bread maker to 1kg loaf size and dark bake. Using a wooden or plastic spoon start to mix the mixture, making sure that there is no dry flour in the corners of the pan.
    3. Turn on the bread maker and let it do its magic. Turn out the finished loaf to cool on a wire stand and then, when cold, remove the paddle. Enjoy.

    Nice loaf, I would describe it as looking like a '50/50' loaf in colour, and us great as my kids will eat. It produces a nice rise and cuts well. Great fir sandwiches.  -  08 Sep 2014


    Something else. It is even better if you replace the water with Newcastle Brown Ale. It works best if the beer is at room temperature  -  15 Jul 2010
