  1. Pre-heat the oven.
  2. Rub some oil around the inside of a 1kg/2lb loaf tin or insert a baking liner.
  3. Put the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl, stir to combine and sieve into a mixing bowl. Tip any bran left in the sieve into the bowl.
  4. Measure the boiling water into a jug and add the cold water.
  5. Add the yoghurt and stir to combine.
  6. Pour this into the mixing bowl and stir everything together to make a soft, sticky dough mass.
  7. Tip the dough into the prepared tin, smooth the top and dust lightly with flour.
  8. Brush some oil over a piece of tin foil. With the oiled side down, cover the tin, creating a dome so the bread can rise during cooking.
  9. Bake for 55 minutes.
  10. Carefully remove the tin foil and bake for a further 10 minutes.
  11. Turn the loaf out of the tin, tap the base and if it sounds hollow the bread is cooked.
  12. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
  13. Cool completely before slicing.

A lovely bread; crusty on the outside, soft on the inside, and so easy to make with so few ingredients! I have used the recipe using other flours and they have all came out well.

Not only incredibly tasty - but also the softest, crispest, easiest loaf I've ever made. This recipe is genius, thank you!
