The Best Brown Bread in the World!


I think this is the nicest recipe for brown bread I have ever tasted. I make it all the time, I usually omit the sugar as I find it makes it a bit sweet.


  • 12 oz wholemeal flour
  • 1 oz wheat bran
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon bread soda
  • 1 dessert spoon brown sugar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • half a pint of milk
  • 1 small pot hazelnut or plain yoghurt (approx 125g)


  1. Mix the dry ingredients, add the milk, oil and yoghurt and mix with a knife. Turn into a greased loaf tin and bake for 40 min approx at 180 degrees. Turn out of the tin and wrap in a tea towel. Delicious warm or cold.
