Eating it, cooking it, thinking about it

Either eating it, cooking it or plotting it

early riser

Exactly as the picture says. Wide awake at unpleasant o clock this morning, made a maple & seed loaf... 

450g wholemeal bread flour
200g white bread flour
350- 400ml warm water
2 tablespoons maple syrup
50g mixed seeds
tsp salt
tbsp oil ( or butter)
7g sachet yeast

All ingredients except seeds into the mixer, combine with dough hook for 10 mins.Check for dough being too wet/ dry, adjust water, or sprinkle in a little more flour if needs be. Leave to rise for an hour, covered in an oiled or floured bowl. Knock back, add in seeds , re-knead then pop into floured loaf tin ( I used a 2lb tin) and leave to rise, covered again for another hour. Bake at 200 for 30 mins, knock the bottom of the tin and you should get a hollow sound that tells you its ready. Its a toothsome little loaf, a good teeth sinker-inner.
