Wholemeal Honey Bread

Posted in - Bake & Healthy Recipes & Recipes on January 25th 2013 4 Comments

This is totally yummy toasted, untoasted, for breakfast – especially good with honey and a cup of tea – and if you make Gravlax – justice is done.



350g strong wholemeal flour
150g strong white bread flour
7g sachet dried yeast
1tsp salt
30g honey
1 egg (not essential)
250mls or more, or warm water

1.  Place all the ingredients except the water in a bowl, a Kitchenaid for ease if you have one.


2.  Add the water gradually, mixing the ingredients together with you hands, the dough hook of a Kitchenaid, or a knife.  Knead the bread until it is springy to the touch – about 10 minutes, or 5 minutes in a Kitchenaid.
3.  Set the bowl with the dough aside with a tea towel over it to rise for 2 hours.

3.  Knock it back by punching the air out of it.
4.  Shape the bread (I am sure you will do a better job than the risen example below – you could put it in a loaf tin or plait it), and leave it for another hour or so.

4.  Bake it in the oven at 200 degrees C for 15 minutes, then check.  How long this will take depends on your oven.  When it is a deep brown, remove it and place on a wire rack.  This must be done quickly as leaving it can leave to a damp base.

      Dear Gaby
      I am in the process of figuring out how to add links on the page but am not there yet! The Gravlax (thank you for getting the spelling correct!) is http://victoriastrakercook.co.uk/2012/11/07/gravalax/. If this link does not work, click on older posts at the end of the canapes page and you should find the recipe. I hope this works! Please let me know if it doesn’t. I am slowly gaining further understanding of wordpress ……
      Love Vicky x
