Muesli Loaf


It’s been exactly a month since I posted last. It feels like an actual lifetime since I baked anything, and I’ve been getting that itchy feeling. I’ve been very busy with work and then when I did have a chance to get my bake on I couldn’t. We’ve got SO much cake in the house. Cupcakes, a giant birthday cake and my very own Harry Potter/ Hagrid hybrid cake made by my very own other half. The sweetheart.

I had the loveliest birthday this year. It was relaxed, I caught up with my dearest friends and spent some time with Chris and our new picnic baskets (plural). I got lots of new baking equipment and a few recipes books which I’m very excited to get cracking on! Expect to see more recipes soon. Promise.

This post today has come from Dorset Cereals, The Breakfast Book. Obviously I am a massive lover of breakfast so I couldn’t wait to start making lots of things I wouldn’t normally have. I usually stick to oatmeal, cereal and almond milk, or yogurt with fruit. Allllll very yummy but I need a change. What with it being bread week on GBBO, I decided to go for this lovely little muesli loaf. It’s packed full of plump sultanas and it’s perfect for the upcoming chilly autumn months, especially slathered with butter and jam.








  • 2 cups muesli
  • 3 cups strong white bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon easy bake yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/8 cups tepid water
  • 3 tablespoons clear honey
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  1. Mix the muesli, flour, yeast and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Mix the water, honey and melted butter in a jug and then add this to the flour mixture.
  3. If you’re using a mixture with a dough hook, mix for about 3-4 minutes. If you’re kneading by hand then you’ll have to do this on a floured surface for about 10 minutes.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Leave for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200C
  6. Once done, lightly knead and roll into a loaf shape. Place in a loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes until a rich brown colour.
  7. Cool on a wire rack before toasting and buttering.
