Soya Loaf

The addition of some soya flour to a traditional brown loaf makes for a denser, more nutty flavour of bread. A good bread to go with strongly flavoured foods such as spicy bean stew.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp fast action yeast
  • 375g strong wholemeal flour
  • 100g soya flour
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 30g butter or olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 330ml warm water

Method:

  1. Either combine the ingredients together in a bread maker and set it to make a medium sized loaf or do the following steps by hand:
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spoon until a dough forms.
  3. Kneed the dough for three minutes on a floured surface and then place it somewhere warm for 30 minutes.
  4. Kneed the dough for a further three minutes and then return to the warm place for another 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees.
  6. Kneed the dough one last time and then put it into a greased bread tin or onto a greased baking tray.
  7. Leave to rise for 10 minutes while the oven heats up.
  8. Bake in the oven for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the crust is nicely browned.
