  • Add the flour to a mixing bowl with the yeast and salt and mix together.
  • Dissolve the maple syrup in the warm water and then add to the dry ingredients.
  • Mix – don’t knead – until you have a sticky well combined dough.
  • Transfer to a greased 9×5 loaf pan. You can also line the bottom with parchment paper if you think there will be any chance of it sticking.
  • Cover and leave to rise for 20 minutes.
  • While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  • After 20 minutes* when the dough has risen, bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Absolutely BEST when fresh, but will keep for a day or two in a closed container. After which you can make the most delicious toast.
