Island Cottage Brown Bread (6 loaves x 1 lb tins)
This bread is cooked every day for the restaurant. It freezes very well. You can also make a type of crisp bread ideal for cheese by slicing it very thinly and baking it in a low oven for about an hour. Ideal for taking on a boat trip. Crisp it as much or as little as you want. We have it toasted on one side for breakfast. Toasting on both sides makes it too hard.
1kg extra course Howard’s brown flour
20 g sugar
30 g bicarbonate of soda sieved

100 ml extra virgin olive oil
Mix all dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix very lightly. It is quite a wet mixture. Put into well buttered 1lb tins. Put into hot oven 220C for 1 1/4 hrs..
