  • 500
    wholewheat flour
  • 500
    white bread flour
  • 4
  • 10
    instant dried yeast
  • 0.50
  • 5
    melted butter (optional)
  • 750
    water, lukewarm


Preheat the oven to 200 ° C.Mix all the dry ingredients. Add the melted butter. Gradually mix in the water and knead until you have an elastic dough that comes away from the sides of the bowl. Knead for at least 10 minutes if you're doing it by hand, and three minutes if you're using a food mixer. Allow to rise in a warm place, covering the bowl with cling wrap or placing it inside a plastic bag until the dough has doubled in volume. Knead brie. Fry and place in two medium-sized bread pans. Cover and allow to rise again until it's doubled in volume. Bake at 200 ° C for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 180 ° C for a further 45 minutes or so – until the loaves give a hollow sound when they're turned out and you knock on them with your knuckles.
