Yields1 Serving
Prep Time10 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time30 mins

 1 Wheaten Bread Mix
 30 ml Oil (Vegetable, Rapeseed, Olive, melted butter even)
 400 ml Water
 1 tbsp Sunflower or vegetable oil
 900 g Greased Loaf Tin
 Mixing Bowl & Mixing Spoon

1

Preheat the oven to 200oC (400 oF or Gas Mark 6)

2

Add the contents of the Wheaten mix to your bowl, remembering to lift out the small bag of coarse wholemeal, keep this over you will need it later.

3

Add the oil and water to the dry mix, and using your mixing spoon, stir and mix until a uniform consistency is achieved, usually within 30 seconds.

4

Pour the mix into your pre-prepared loaf tin, try to make it as level as possible.

5

Fetch the wee bag of coarse wholemeal, open and sprinkle over the top of the Wheaten. (Top tip, try to sprinkle flour in a line, along the length of the wheaten, seems to help with a pleasing final product)

6

Pop in the middle shelf of your oven, close the door, and set the timer for 50 minutes.

7

Enjoy the smells of your kitchen while the bread bakes and you tidy up the bowl and spoon required to make your loaf.

8

At 50 minutes, check your loaf, if it is quite light, give it another 10 minutes. You can (carefully), remove the wheaten from the tin, and tap the bottom of it, if it sounds hollow, the loaf is baked through.

9

Leave to cool, and then enjoy, sweet or savoury, goes either way.
