The perfect loaf for toast


For two 500g loaves

850g strong white flour

150g white spelt flour

600ml water

A splash of oil

14g yeast

15g salt


Use the standard bread baking method:

1. Activate the yeast if required in warm water

2. Mix all the ingredients together until you have a smooth dough (approx 10 mins)

3. Form into a ball, dust with flour, leave it, covered, until it's doubled in size (approx 40-60 mins)

4. Knock back so it shrinks in size. Split in half and form two balls

5. Form into loaves / drop into bread tins

6. Dust with flour, leave it, covered, until it's doubled in size again (approx 30-45 mins)

7. Bake in a pre-heated oven 220C for 10 mins, then turn down to 200C for the remainder. If browning quickly, turn down to 180C. They will take approx 30 mins - ready when you tap the bottoms and get a hollow sound in return

8. Leave to cool
