Danielle’s guide to making bread

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups of warm milk
  • 2 Tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 1-3 tablespoons of sugar (add more if you like sweeter bread)
  • 3 tablespoons of active dry yeast (conservative side)
  • 6 cups of whole wheat flour (or 3 cups whole wheat & 3 cups all-purpose flour)
  • 2 teaspoons of salt 1 teaspoon of baking powder 

Method 

‘Grab a big bowl, and stir the 1/2 cup of warm water, 1 (or more) tablespoons of sugar, 3 tablespoons of yeast. Wait for 5 minutes (no longer – mine went all over the place the first time!) – it should be frothy on the top. While your waiting warm 2 cups of milk and 2 Tbsp of butter in microwave.

‘Next, add milk and butter to yeast mixture. Using a standing mixer slowly add the 6 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Mix and knead the dough. (I used dough hook once I had incorporated most of the flour for about 5 minutes then kneaded by hand for another 5-7 minutes.)

‘Line your slow cooker with cooking (baking) paper and place in your round ball of dough. I will rise in the slow cooker as it heats through. Cook on High power for 2- 2.5 hours. 

‘Start checking at every 7-10 minutes until top is sponge-y but springs back and no moisture on the top. The bottom should be a nice brown colour as well as sides. I put mine (just the loaf) in the oven on broil/grill for less than 5 minutes to get a nice crusty top too!’ 

‘Make sure it is completely cooked through – my loaf took 2 1/2 hours! Slice and enjoy as whole grain toast or sandwich bread!’

Sharing the final result, she wrote: 'Make sure it is completely cooked through - my loaf took 2 1/2 hours! Slice and enjoy as whole grain toast or sandwich bread!'
