Recipe by Lizzie in NZ
READY IN: 4hrs 20mins


  • 2
    teaspoons yeast (bread machine yeast)
  • 3 14
    cups flour
  • 2 12
    teaspoons gluten flour
  • 1 13
    teaspoons salt
  • 1 13
    tablespoons sugar
  • 1 13
    cups water (luke warm)


  • Place the ingredients into your ABM in the order specified for your machine. Set it on the dough cycle.
  • When the dough cycle has beeped, LEAVE the dough in the machine for another 30 minutes. It will continue to rise again.
  • Preheat your oven to 190°C Grease a 9x5x3 loaf pan with butter.
  • Tip out your dough onto a lightly floured work area and roll into a long rectangle, making sure the width is no wider than 9 inches and about 1/2 inch thick. It doesn't matter about the length. You will hear all the air bubbles popping as you roll.
  • Once the air bubbles are gone, roll up, starting from one of the short ends. You may want to moisten the end of the dough to help seal it together.
  • Place roll of dough, seam side down, tucking ends under, in your loaf pan.
  • Leave to rise until doubled in size, approximately 30-40mins. Brush with melted butter.
  • Bake 190C for 30 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped with the handle of a knife.
  • While loaf is hot brush with melted butter.
  • Remove loaf from pan onto a cooling rack.
