Still warm and fragrant, these look lovely! I'm delighted.
I just used my usual recipe
1 heaped tsp instant yeast (the kind for breadmakers)
1 tsp each of salt and sugar
a splash of veg oil
350mls warm water.
Bung it all together, mix and knead (very therapeutic), then pop in an oiled bowl, covered with cling film, to rise. I give it all the time it needs to double in amount.
Then knock it back, shape it as you want, cover and let it prove before baking for 35 mins. I turn my oven to the hottest it will go and when the loaves go in I turn it down to 180 (fan).
I was pleased with the rise as it's 100% wholemeal. It doesn't feel solid or 'heavy'.
Later on I will slice them and freeze them, all but what I need for dinner tonight. Can't wait (but will have to).
