Wholemeal Bread

Wholemeal Bread

You can’t beat the smell of freshly baked bread when you wake up in the morning and this homemade Wholemeal Bread is hard to beat. We use our Panasonic bread machine around 3-4 times a week to bake fresh bread at home and this recipe is for the one we bake the most.

Choosing a bread machine can be difficult but we really do recommend the Panasonic Automatic Breadmaker range (Panasonic SD-2511W Multi-Function Bread Maker – White). Although more expensive than some models, the Panasonic machines produce great results and we have had ours for some years now.

Hints & Tips

After trying many flour brands and types, our favourite choice is Waitrose Very Strong Canadian Wholemeal or White Flour for bread & pasta making which produces good results and flavours every time. Traditionally milled, it is sold by Waitrose in 1.5 kg bags.
