    Ingredients
    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

    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.

    Note:

    You can find flaxseed meal in health shops.

    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
