Canadian 50:50 loaf

225g Canadian Strong White Bread Flour

225g Strong Canadian Blend Wholemeal Flour

300mls water

5g yeast

5g salt

20g sugar

20ml olive oil

Mix dry ingredients, then add water and oil. Knead 20 minutes (I use a bread machine to mix the dough - if you are hand mixing, you may want to make the dough stiffer by reducing the water to 270mls). Leave in a warm place to rise for one hour. Punch back. Put in a large (800g) greased loaf tin to rise until the loaf is above the rim. Bake in pre-heated oven for 30 mins at gas mark 5 or equivalent.
