Jack Berry™ Special Wholemeal Loaf

Jack Berry™ Special Wholemeal Loaf

This recipe uses Jack Berry™ Baker’s Choice Rye Flour FINE 720 and Wheat Flour Bread 750 from the Traditional range.  Both flours are great for making bread and this combination produces a tasty crusty loaf that is not too heavy and is rich in fibre and protein.

Makes 1 x 2lb loaf


30g black treacle

400ml hot water

300g Jack Berry™ Rye Flour FINE 720

300g Jack Berry™ Wheat Flour Bread 750

1 ½ tsp quick dry yeast

1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

2 tbsp oil


Spoon the black treacle into a jug, add the hot water, stir until dissolved then leave it to cool.

Place the flours, yeast, sugar and salt into a mixing bowl and blend them together with a spoon.

Stir in the treacle/water mixture and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the oil.

Using your hands, gather everything together into a smooth, soft, doughy mass. Do not knead the dough.

Place a large mixing bowl over the dough bowl or cover with a clean tea towel and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about 60 minutes.

Grease a 2lb bread tin.

Knead the dough for 5 minutes then shape it and put it into the prepared tin.

Leave to rise in a warm place for a further 45 minutes.

Pre-heat the oven to 220°C, Fan 200°C, 425°F, Gas 7

Then bake the loaf for 40–45 minutes, when cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
