Lazy Loaf

Baking again today! 🙂
We decided to do some more bread, but chose Nigella Lawson’s Lazy Loaf recipe. It’s a sort of non-sweet fruit loaf, and meant to be mixed and then just left in the oven at varying temperatures…

Here’s the basic recipe –

Lazy Loaf

200g muesli (we didn’t have any, so just combined rolled oats with sultanas)
325g wholewheat bread flour
1 sachet (6g) instant yeast
1 tsp salt (we use Himalayan)
250ml milk
250ml water

Mix dry ingredients, then mix in wet ingredients. It will look like a thick porridge.
Pour into greased loaf tin.
Place into a cold oven, then turn on to 110*C. Leave for 45 minutes. Then turn up to 180*C, leave for one hour. Tip out and tap base of loaf – if it sounds hollow, it’s cooked. If not, put in the oven for about 10 minutes more. Cool on a rack.
Eat warm with lots of butter 🙂

We had some issues with our oven, and didn’t have a loaf tin (we used a steep-sided casserole dish), so our loaf took longer than it should have. Still worth cooking!
