MULTIGRAIN BREAD

If you search through the ingredients on the bread packet on the supermarket shelf you will actually be very surprised that all you need to make a loaf is yeast,water,salt,flour and a pair of hands.
All the bread expects from you is a little bit of patience…..

Ps.I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t add some seeds into my bread 😉

Enjoy……

RECIPE:
For 1 loaf
INGREDIENTS:
200g/7oz white bread flour
300g/11 oz wholemeal bread flour
300ml/10fl oz tepid water
50g/2 oz fine oats
75g/3oz mixed seeds
25g/1oz fresh yeast(room temperature) or 12g/ 1/2oz instant yeast
2tbsp sunflower oil
1tsp salt
pinch of sugar
Additionaly:egg,beaten(to brush the bread with) and 2tbsp oats and seeds(to sprinkle over the bread)
METHOD:

1.Crumble fresh(or dry) yeast into a bowl add 1 pinch of sugar,50ml/2fl oz tepid water and 1-2 tbsp flour.Mix until smooth and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.It should be bubbling and foamy after that amount of time.

2.Sift the flour with salt into a large bowl. Add yeast mixture,sunfower oil,seeds and oats. Combine using a wooden spoon.Slowely pour water into a bowl.Mix till the dough comes together.Add a little flour onto a flat surface and knead the dough for around 10 minutes adding just a little flour at a time.The dough should not be sticky but quite playable.

3.Cover the bowl with a cotton tea towel and leave to rise (around 1 hour to 1 and 1/2 hours).(Just remember yeast dough doesn’t like droughts).

4.Grease a bread pan and sprinkle with some fine oats and seeds. When the dough double in size,punch it down and place on a slightly floured surface.Knead for 2-3 minutes and place it in a greased baking pan.Leave for another 30 minutes.

5.Preheat the oven 190 C/170 C fan/Gas.Brush the dough with egg and sprinkle seeds and oats on the top.Bake for 45 minutes covering with aluminium foil if it gets too brown.It should have a hollow sound when you knock it.

6.Take the bread out of the tin and place on a cooling rack.
