no knead brown yeast bread

In honor of my friend Melanie who has taken to baking one loaf of bread each week (or was it each month?) I have put together a tutorial of the most very basic no knead brown yeast bread.

300 grams whole wheat flour
150 grams white flour
1 dessert spoon full of dried yeast
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon salt
325 ml warm water

preheat oven to 230 c

oil loaf tin.

mix flours together with salt in large bowl.
mix water with molasses and yeast and let sit for 5 minutes until frothy.

mix water and flour mixtures together and spread into tin.

let the dough rise in warm spot until it just peeps over the edge of the tin.

bake 35 minutes, take loaf out of tin and bake another 10 minutes until loaf is nice and crunchy on the outside and hollow sounding when tapped on the bottom.

Voila, the most simple brown yeast bread ever!

Best eaten hot out of the oven with loads of butter, honey or whatever you fancy.

  1. I can't wait to try this! I love the smell of bread baking in the house. So comforting. I'm so excited to see you have started your blog. Estelle just told me today that this was in the works. So excited!
