How to make it

  • Blend yeast into water and let stand 10 minutes.
  • In another bowl, mix flours and salt.
  • Stir in yeast slurry.
  • Warm the malt syrup, molasses and margarine until just melted.
  • Stir the warm (not hot!) mixture into the flour/yeast blend. It should form a soft, sticky dough (add more water if needed).
  • Knead on floured board for 10-15 minutes.
  • Divide into two, and put into two prepared loaf pans.
  • Leave to rise until the dough fills the pans completely (this may take quite a while, up to 90 minutes).
  • Bake 30 - 40 minutes at 400F, turn out of pans immediately and cool on wire racks.

    Wonderful recipe. I have a similar bread recipe and I have substituted whole wheat flour in a pinch. And the malt and molasses gives it a deep flavor. I use butter. No trans fats. You're right, this makes a good dipping bread and a fantastic heavy toast.
