This Malted Brown loaf is delicious served warm from the oven and slathered with butter. It also is the ideal bread to make a yummy Ploughman's sandwich.


  1. Put the flour, salt and yeast into a bowl.

    • 475g Country Grain Bread Flour
  2. Combine the water, honey and sunflower oil and add to the flour mixture.

    • 280ml Warm Water
    • 1 tbsp Sunflower Oil
  3. Mix until you have a soft dough and then knead by hand for 10 minutes or use the dough hook on your stand mixer.

  4. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead and form into a long oval. Place into a greased, 450g/1 lb loaf tin.

  5. Cover with oiled clingfilm and set aside to rise for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size. The time may vary depending on the temperature of the room.

  6. Preheat your oven to 220°c/200°c fan/Gas Mark 7.

  7. Once your oven has reached full temperature, place your loaf in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 200°c/180°c fan/Gas Mark 6.

  8. Bake the loaf for 30 minutes.

  9. When the loaf is cooked it will sound hollow when the base is tapped.

  10. Leave the loaf to cool completely on a wire rack.

    Nice easy to follow recipe which produces lovely tasty bread. I’ve used this recipe lots of times with good results and have modified it from time to time adding different ingredients to produce additional flavours. I’ve presently got beer and chilli rolls baking in the oven for lovely tasty burgers with a kick for our tea.

    I’ve made lots of bread from and this is one of my best although its a little bit wet to knead by hand the result is still amazing, I’ve even made bread rolls from this recipe and they are very nice. Whatever bread I make from this site is eaten up the same day.
