Please give this recipe another star, have made a few times and always a success. Great method giving fab results for what could be a heavy loaf but the results are anything but. One of my favourite bakes which I keep going back to. On a number of bakes I have replaced the whole meal with malt house which give another dimension to the loaf.

RE: Multigrain

Hello peter ,thank you for your comments.I will try it with the Malthouse flour myself. I sometimes add a pinch [not to much] of Carroway seeds. Regards JB
