This bread mix, made with our signature Serves You Rye (light) flour, also has a little something else included. For extra wholegrain goodness that really makes the difference, we’ve added crunchy malted rye.

These ingredients come together to form a tangy sourdough that gives our bread a soft and delicate, well-rounded flavour. It makes for a truly delectable loaf so try it as freshly cut sandwiches or, if you prefer, extra-tasty toast.

Rise & Shine! To help your loaves rise above the rest we don’t add yeast to the mix. But instead we’ll include a couple of sachets so it keeps fresh and ready to get to work.

You may know that rye contains shedloads of goodness, but did you know that it is also a base ingredient in whisky, vodka and gin? Don’t worry, it won’t get you tipsy. (Hic.)

Baking by hand

  1. In a bowl add bread mix, yeast and tepid water. Mix to form a soft dough, ensuring no dry lumps remain. Leave to rest for about 7 minutes.

  2. Knead for 3 minutes, mould into a ball then leave to rest for 7 minutes.

    Use a food mixer to combine ingredients and knead the dough.

  3. Repeat step 2 once more before shaping the dough and placing in an oiled 2lb tin or baking tray.

    Instead of flouring your work surface try using floury hands. Keep hand-dough contact as fleeting as possible, this will help prevent any sticky problems.

  4. Loosely cover with film/damp cloth and leave in a warm place to rise for 50-60 minutes or until doubled in size.

  5. Uncover and bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes at 220°C (fan 205°C, gas mark 8).

  6. Remove from tin and cool on a wire rack.

    To test if a loaf is baked, tap on the underside, if it sounds hollow it’s done.

Using a bread machine

  1. For an 800g loaf/machine capacity add ingredients listed above to your bread machine and select appropriate programme.

  2. Refer to your manual for information on size, settings and specific programmes as performance can vary between brands.

    For many bread machines the basic/normal setting works best. Rapid settings do not work particularly well, with the exception of the Panasonic.

  3. When the programme ends always remove the bread from the pan straight away and leave to cool on a wire rack.


Store in a cool dry place. Reseal bag after use.
