Mise en place

  • If using fresh yeast, activate it in the water.


  1. Mix all of the ingredients except for the water (and yeast, if using fresh).
  2. Gradually incorporate the water and knead for 10-15 minutes, or 5 minutes if using a machine with a dough hook.
  3. Leave to rise until double its size in a bowl, covered with oiled cling film.
  4. Knock back and repeat the kneading and rising process.
  5. Bake at 230° C (450° F - gas 8), [fan oven 210° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour] for 30-45 minutes until it is done.
  6. Turn out of the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.


Use fresh garlic if preferred and add other spices of your choice.

Chef's notes

Very strong Canadian bread flour can also be obtained online from various flour mills and in theory Sainsbury's sell it, but I never seen it in either of our local ones, nor I have ever had it delivered when I have ordered it online from them.

Recipe review

Would spelt work?

4.4/5 I wonder if spelt would work with this as I find wholemeal bread very filling. Jerry, aka Chef (talk)
