Ingredients

MAKES 1 LOAF
FOR THE DOUGH
1½ tsp fast action dried yeast
500g strong white bread flour
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
¼ tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
300ml water
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 clove of crushed garlic
FOR THE GLAZE
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp water

Steps

1

Into the pan of the breadmaker, add the ingredients in the order they are listed. If using the SD-YR2550 or SD-YR2540 models, you can use the Yeast Dispenser functionality for this.
Add the yeast to the yeast dispenser.

2

Select Whole Wheat Dough programme.

3

Once the breadmaker has finished, press stop and remove the dough from the breadmaker.

4

Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces and carefully roll each piece into a rope, approximately 30cm in length.

5

Place the ropes next to each other and from the centre, plait from left to right to the end of the ropes.
Pinch the ends together and tuck under the loaf.
Turn the dough around and plait the other sides as before.

6

Place the loaf on a lined baking sheet, cover and leave to rise in a warm place for around an hour, until doubled in size.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°C (fan).

7

Beat the egg yolk with the water to create the glaze.
With a pastry brush, gently glaze the plait all over, and then bake for 25-30 minutes.

8

Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
