200g white flour

300g coarse brown flour

3 tblsp of bran

2 tblsp of wheatgerm

2 heaped tsps of baking powder

1 level tsps salt

1 dessertspoon of treacle

600-900ml of milk

Makes 1 loaf


  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add the treacle and stir in the milk gradually to give a moist but not sloppy mixture. (I used only 600ml/pint of milk for this)
  3. Place in a well-greased loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes or until risen. Reduce the heat 170 degrees Celsius and bake for a further hour.
  4. Run a knife around the tin and ease the bread out. If it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom it is cooked; if not return to the over for a further 10-15 minutes. There is no need to put the bread back in the tin, just place it on the shelf.


Note: the cooking time for this is quite long because of the wetness of the mixture. It might be a good idea to set a timer.

 Also I found it quite difficult to get wheatgerm and bran but eventually found it in the health food store.
