What you need:

  • 500g/1lb 2oz Odlums Wholemeal Rye Flour
  • 500ml/ 17fl oz Warm Water
  • 1 tbsp Black Treacle
  • 1 x 7g sachet Instant Dried Yeast
  • ½ tsp Salt

 

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Grease and base line a 900g/2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.
  2. In a jug, add treacle to the warm water and stir.
