A great-tasting and easy wholemeal bread. This recipe makes 3 loaves.
Used different ingredients. Amazing recipe. I bake a lot of bread and this is by far one of the best wholemeal breads I've made. Surprisingly, this recipe is pretty much perfect. I've made it about 4 times now and it's foolproof. I've also sub sugar for honey and it works fine (use the same amount). This is a very moist, tender, slightly chewy bread. It makes the quintessential sandwich bread and stays moist for at least a few days. To make sandwich size bread, you will only need TWO large loaf tins. Exactly 25 min. was perfect for me. This will be my master wholemeal recipe. - 14 Jul 2008
Why does "plain" flour mean white flour, and why does "bread flour" mean white bread flour? And who decided that a loaf in which less than 40% of the flour was wholemeal would qualify as a wholemeal loaf? Quick it may be: great-tasting, even; but wholemeal it most definitely isn't. - 19 Aug 2011
Used different ingredients. This bread is DELICIOUS! What I did differently was add a mixture of seeds such as sunflower, sesame, and whatever else was in the mixture. I replace the butter with apple sauce, and I don't use as much honey. I think the amount of honey the recipe calls for makes the bread too sweet. This bread does not need to be kneaded on a flour surface. I knead it in the bowl. After kneading, make sure your bowl is buttered so that the dough won't stick when you let it rise. - 14 Jul 2008
