Instructions: Mixed grain bread Recipe: Low Fat, Low Sugar

  • Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, olive oil and salt in a bowl, make a well in the centre and add the water.
  • Mix to a soft dough - add more water if required.
  • Grease a baking tin, the dough should be almost soft enough to pour into the tin.
  • Bake at Gas Mark 6, 400°F, 200°C for 25- 35 minutes. Turn out and cool on wire rack.
  • Check that the loaf is cooked by using a skewer through the middle. The loaf is not cooked until the skewer comes out clean.
Variations:

  • Use millet flour in place of rice flour if you have a grain mill.
  • Stand a bowl of water in the oven to give the steamy atmosphere needed for a good crust.
  • Experiment by adding a range of herbs to the dough.
