If you have been following my blog, you already know that I m too busy for super complicated baking recipes. I still love food. I love eating more than cooking so when a friend showed me this easy and quick bread recipe, I thought I would give it a try.



375 Wholemeal bread flour

125 White strong flour

7 gr yeast powder

10 gr salt

325 ml warm water

Lug of olive oil

You only need 7 minutes to prepare. Follow these steps and you will have a fresh homemade bread in less than 3 hours:

1. Mix the 2 different floursin a large container

3. Add water and knead for 3 minutes until you reach this consistency (it might take less than 3 minutes)


Put some cling film on top of the container and let it rest for 2 hours (or overnight/for the whole day as I do!)

4. When the dough reaches this size (it has basically doubled in size)


You can need for 3 minutes. Before kneading, put some oil on your worktop. I took the oil cap as a comparison for you to understand the quantity.

Let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes.

5. After 30 minutes, put the down on a parchments paper, make some light cuts on the top part of the dough and sprinkle some white flour. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 225 C and for 10 minutes at 200 C.


Baker’s tip: Put 8 ice cubes inside a small tin together with the bread the oven. Your bread will come out with a lovely crust!



Good luck!
