• 400g of pre-mix
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 (140-160g) Apple, skins ok, blended
  • 2 Eggs***

*** Option to omit the eggs for a slightly denser bread with better hold and moisture retention.

1) Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and take out as many loaf pans as you will need. Smaller loaf pans yield a taller loaf whilst larger loaf pans produce a shorter loaf;

2) Use a food processor or a bullet-style blender to blitz up the apple, oil, vinegar, water until smooth;

3) If adding eggs, add them now and blitz in for only second or two;

4) Weigh 400g of the loaf mix. Add in any variation flavours you wish to use. (see reverse)

5) Combine the wet with the premix ingredients and stir quickly but ONLY JUST until the last little bit of flour has been moistened into the wet. Mixing any longer can result in denser, heavier loaves;

6) Transfer immediately into a loaf pan to preserve as many bubbles as possible. Bake straight away for 45- 50min. uncovered for a crustier loaf or covered (leave room for it to rise) for a softer crust;

7) Wherever possible, let this loaf sit before cutting into it for at least 20min. out of the oven just in case the middle has not fully finished setting;

8) This loaf slices well and freezes well pre-sliced. It tastes amazing fresh out of the oven and delicious still once cool, a personal preference is warmed/ toasted in the toaster first.
