Serves: 12 

  • 350ml (12 fl oz) water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried active baking yeast
  • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 150g (5 oz) Ready brek
  • 175g (6 oz) wholemeal flour
  • 175g (6 oz) bread flour
  • 75g (3 oz) flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Prep:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Add water, yeast, oil and honey to the pan of the bread machine; stir to dissolve yeast. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together Ready brek, wholemeal flour, bread flour, flaxseed meal and salt. Pour this mixture into the pan of the bread machine. Select Wholewheat cycle; press Start.
  3. After the dough has risen, remove it from the bread machine and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form into a loaf shape and place in a lightly greased 23x12cm (9x5 in) loaf tin. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.


You can find flaxseed meal in health shops.

Something else. excellent! I used the bread machine for the dough cycle and made rolls from the dough (let rise 45 minutes), absolutely amazing served with Honey! thank you so much for this recipe! - 15 Sep 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. This bread is really good. I like the high fibre content. I used more wholemeal than plain flour, and it was still great. The bread not only tastes great, it looks great, too! Thanks for a great, high fibre recipe! - 15 Sep 2008


Great taste! My bread machine doesn't work well, so I mixed the dough in my kitchen-aid mixer instead. It is very hearty and dense...and I may try to add a bit more sugar, and some gluten next time so it will rise a little higher...to use for sandwiches. This would also be terrific as mini-loaves baked free form. Tasted great toasted with honey, too. Thanks for sharing a really good and healthy bread recipe! - 15 Sep 2008
