Our best breadmaker bread recipe
We add a little bit of wholemeal flour, just for a little interest, but not enough to make a heavy loaf.
We've made this in a variety of Panasonic Breadmakers which all have a 'French bake' setting. This is an extended rise and gives a very light airy loaf. You cannot make an extra large loaf with this setting as it rises too much. it would probably work on a normal setting if your breadmaker does not have 'French bake'.
- 1 teaspoon Allinson's Easy Bake Yeast - See chef's notes below for other types of yeast.
- 200g strong white flour
- 200g strong brown flour
- 2 pinches of ascorbic acid
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 20g vegetable oil
- 280g water
- Although the instructions say to put the yeast in the separate compartment, we always tip everything together in the breadmaker bin. It's up to you.
- If you are not using a fast Easy Bake Yeast , then activate it first - instructions are here.
- Set the breadmaker to 'French Bake' setting (#8 on the Panasonic SD-ZB2502)
- Your loaf should be ready after 6 hours. Put a timer on so you don;t forget it as it will collapse if you leave it in the breadmaker for an extended period after if has completed the baking cycle.
