  • 250 g strong bread flour plus extra for dusting
  • 250 g wholemeal flour
  • 7 g instant/ fast action yeast
  • 8 g salt
  • 350 g milk
  • 10 g caster sugar
  • 25 g butter
  • 1 tsp odourless oil like sunflower or vegetable oil


  • In a bowl of your stand mixer, mix both types of flour, salt and fast-action yeast.
  • Pour the milk into a small saucepan, add the sugar and butter and heat on low stirring just until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted. Leave to cool down to lukewarm.
  • Add the milk to the flour mixture and, using a dough hook attachment mix in your stand mixer for about 7-8 minutes.
  • Shape a ball and place it into a lightly greased bowl, cover and leave for a couple of hours in a warm spot (or until doubled in size).
  • Using a pastry brush, grease a 2lbs (900ml) loaf tin with some odourless oil. Lightly dust it with flour.
  • Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide the dough into three equal-sized pieces. Shape three balls and place them in the tin snuggly. Dust the top with some flour, cover with a tea towel and leave for 1 hour in a warm spot (or until doubles in size again).
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C. Using a sharp knife or a dough scorer, slash the dough 3-4 times and place the tin in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, without opening the oven, reduce the heat to 170°C and continue baking for another 30 minutes.
  • Once baked, leave in the tin to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer onto a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.
