Ingredients

4 cups whole wheat flour

1 sachet yeast

1/3 wheat gluten

2.5 cups warm water

1 tbsp salt

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup natural honey

1 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC and grease a non-stick pan with baking paper.
  2. Combine the whole wheat flour, wheat gluten, and yeast into a large bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon or your hands, then cover with cling wrap for 10 minutes.
  3. In another small bowl, combine the salt, olive oil, honey and lemon juice before beating for 1-2 minutes. Then stir in the 2.5 cups of flour, and use an electric mixer to properly combine all of the ingredients.
  4. Bake between 20-40 minutes or until the bread is brown and fluffy. Remove and store in the pantry or fridge to ensure its longevity.
