We've used 50/50 bread flour in a bread-maker to bake a delicious loaf perfect for toast or sandwiches. This flour contains the same amount of fibre as wholemeal, but looks white in appearance. This will keep the fussy eaters in your family happy! If you're unsure about how to use a bread-maker have a look at our video from 2011 below to show you how.

Method

  1. Ensure the pan is clean and free of residues before inserting securely into the baking unit.

  2. Accurately measure the ingredients into the baking pan in the order as listed. When adding the yeast to the pan, take care the yeast does not come into contact with the water or any other liquid as it will start to activate immediately. 

  3. Close the lid and select the Basic White program 01, 4 hours- 4 hours 5 minutes size XL 'Medium' crust colour. 

    Press the start/stop button once to start the program. Do not open the lid whilst the bread maker is operating. 

  4. To stop the bread maker during the run cycle, press the start/stop button for three seconds, however this will reset the program to the beginning, hence the bake must be re-started using fresh ingredients. 

  5. When the program is completed, the machine beeps 8 times and the bar at the 'End' flashes. Remove the baked loaf from the pan straight away otherwise the bread will become wet from condensation. Use oven gloves during this operation. Using the handle, simply twist the pan anti-clockwise to the 'REMOVE' position and lift out. 

  6. Turn the pan upside down and gently tap the bread from the pan onto a cooling rack. Ensure the kneading blade is removed. Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.

    My bread maker only makes a 2lb loaf how do I sort that out, I really want to make this? I have a Cookworks breadmaker from Argos.

    Hello,

    It would be best to refer to the manufacturers handbook for the recipe they recommend for your bread machine. You can always use the 50/50 of white and wholemeal flour when using their recipe.
    Hope this helps.

    Happy Baking!

    Really sorry I don't understand step 4, please help

    Hello,

    Step 4 is just if you need to stop the programme for any reason. If you don't you can skip this step.

    Thanks

    Yeast not available at my local supermarkets and shops. What can I use as a replacement.
    ________________________________________________
    Hello
    To replace yeast in a recipe, replace the yeast with the same amount of double-acting baking powder.
    You can substitute yeast with equal parts lemon juice and baking soda. So if a recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of yeast, you can use half a teaspoon of lemon juice and half a teaspoon of baking soda.
    There is no true substitute for yeast. While baking powder and soda can give you somewhat similar results, the texture will not be the same. This is why we suggest sticking to recipes that are specifically developed to be made with these ingredients instead.
    Hope you are able to get yeast from your supermarket soon.
    Happy baking!

    Can you make this bread without a breadmaker? If so what would the times and temperatures be to cook in the oven? thanks, Kraig

    Hi,

    We would recommend that you try our Kingsmill 50/50 Bread Roll recipe to bake without a breadmaker. Instead of shaping into rolls, shape into a large ball and prove in a bread tin. Bake at the same temperature as specified in this recipe. You might need to bake slightly longer but test the bread after 20 minutes.

    Happy Baking
