  • 700 gr whole wheat flour
  • 200 gr white flour or oatmeal, spelt or cornmeal.
  • ( can be made with 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white)
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp fast action dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 850 ml warm water (1/3 boiling plus 2/3 very cold in a jug)
  • 2X20 cm loaf tins, greased


    1. Can be done by hand but mixer is easier. Put flours, salt and yeast in bowl and mix with K beater
    2. Switch to dough hook. Make a well in the flour with a spatula. Pour in the mixed water and oil. Mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl. The mixture will be slack and should just drop off the spatula.
    3. Divide into 2 tins and cover with greased cling film which you have pleated along the centre of the tins. Heat oven to 200C/400F
    4. Let loaves rise in a draft free placer for approximately 30 minutes. The microwave oven is useful for this.
    5. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool slightly then turn out on to wire racks to cool. Keeps well because of the olive oil. Freezes well.

I think the recipe means a draught-free place! Have no idea what a "draft free placer" is.
