This recipe is my adaptation from the Grant Loaf in the Food Combining book. I use a wholewheat bread flour with flax and sunflower seeds. This is the easiest bread I have ever made, and it is now our everyday bread. There is no kneading required and it only raises once. I bake about 3-4 loaves per week. It's great as toast! If you like more flax in your diet, add up to a 1/2C of ground flax. You may then want more water.
- 500 g flour (seeded, wholegrain, bread flour)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 6 g yeast (1 packet)
- 460 ml warm water
- Combine honey, yeast and a few tablespoons of the warm water. Allow to stand until foamy.
- Combine flour and salt.
- Add warm water and yeast/honey mixture to the flour and salt. Stir until combined. The dough will be sticky, but should not be wet. Add additional water, if needed.
- Place in bread pan and let stand, covered, in a warm place for about 40 minutes.
- Bake at 200°C/400°F for 40-50 minutes (50 minutes for a dark, crispy crust).
