Split Tin Bread

This is an easy to bake bread. It should work in a bread maker as well if you have one (I don’t have). Just  put all the ingredients in the maker find the right settings for it and off you go.

IngredientsSplit Tin Bread

  • 300g  Strong white flour
  • 200g  Wholemeal plain flour
  • 1tsp Sugar
  • 7g Dried yeast
  • 7g Salt
  • 2tbsp Dried Thyme
  • 300-350ml  Lukewarm Water
  • 1 Egg


If you don’t have a bread maker, like me, firstly, mix the yeast with a teaspoon of sugar and lukewarm water, leave it for 10 minutes. Mix the flours, salt, and thyme and form a well in the middle. Crack an egg into the well, add the yeast mixture and the water. Work the dough for a few minutes and leave it in a warm place to rise for 60-90 minutes.

Push back the risen dough, and kneed it for a good 10 minutes.

Grease a loaf tin with butter. I also sprinkle it with flour so it won’t stuck to it. Leave it to rise again for another 30 minutes, and slash it length wise with a sharp knife or blade. Spray some water on the top of the loaf. It will make it crispier.

Bake it for 35-40 minutes on 200°C. When it’s baked, it make a hollow sound when you tap it on the bottom.

Perfect for sandwiches!
