    1. Place the ingredients into the pan of a bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Set the pan in the machine and close the lid. Select the Dough cycle and press start.
    2. When the cycle is complete, remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and press out all of the air. Roll dough up into a tight loaf and pinch the seam. Place into a 23x13cm loaf tin. Let rise for about 40 minutes or until your finger leaves an impression when you poke the bread gently.
    3. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Bake the loaf for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until nicely browned. When done, the loaf should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

    Have made this without sweetcorn and chilli, replaced with 60g of sunflower seeds and end up with a lovely light textured loaf, which I usually toast. Find it really easy to digest. Great recipe.  -  02 Apr 2016
