Hello flisters

I've been meaning to post this recipe for bread, as it is the easiest ever (even easier if you have a mixer). It takes me 15 minutes at the most and absolutely no kneading! Made from 100% wholemeal/wholewheat flour, so it's reasonably dense, but not brick-like - in fact I was surprised how light it is.

Ingredients -
570 grams flour
400 ml warm water (I use 100ml boiled water and 300ml from the filter jug)
10g (2 tsps) dried yeast
5g (1 tspn) salt
5g (1 tspn) sugar (I use soft brown)

What To Do -
And that is it! Just combine in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Put in a 2lb loaf tin, or 2x 1lb ones. Cover with a damp tea-towel and leave to rise until doubled in size. Bake at 200oC (400F) for 45 mins (big one) or 35 mins (2 small ones).

Notes -
The original recipe says once mixed, turn out onto a floury surface and stretch into an oblong, then fold into 3, before dropping in the tin. I've never dared leave this out just in case, but suspect it may just be to give you a nice domed top. If you have a go at this recipe and leave this step out, please let me know what happened!

I could make a white flour variant that would be equally yummy, but speaking as your resident almost qualified nutritionist, there are so many more vitamins and minerals in the wholemeal/wholewheat flour that I am duty-bound to foist this version on DB and The Sausage.
