Very tasty everyday 1.5lb(680g) loaf

A small tasty loaf which is very easy to make. I almost always make this loaf in a bread machine and it comes out perfectly every time. Occasionally I use a wood fired bread oven.The results are variable and dependent upon me getting the fire right ! Having originally used warm water I find the bread has always risen better using cold water in my machine. I like this recipe because of the use of organic materials and because it is light on salt. I do make lots of other breads but always come back to this recipe for an everyday loaf because it looks good, tastes good and is a consistently well risen loaf
