Chads Bread with a Twist

Hello Dear Reader,

I read about this recipe from Julie over at Simply Joolz, but it is originally from here, it is a very easy bread recipe, made even easier by my Thermomix, however it is still very achievable without a Thermomix, you will just need to hand knead it for 12 minutes or so. I have used a combination of white bread flour and Rye flour as I always like a bit of goodness in my breads. Don't get me wrong, I love plain white bread but I love me a bit of fibre too.

I have done step by step instructions and photos, using my Thermomix

Ingredients for Chads Bread with a Twist, clockwise from bottom left-160 gram Rye flour, 350 gram white bread flour, 30 gram oil (I use Rice Bran Oil), 2 teaspoons instant yeast, 310 gram water and 1 teaspoon each of brown sugar and salt

Weight out water=310 grams

Heat for 2 minutes at 37 degrees

Place all other ingredients into the bowl in this order-yeast, sugar, salt, oil and finally flour's

Mix for 10 seconds on speed 6 until just combined

Remove lid and give it a good scrape down

Knead dough for 6 minutes or if doing by hand-12 minutes

The dough will come away clean from the bowl when done

Put dough into a large bowl that you have sprayed with oil (I use Rice Bran Oil spray)

Let prove for 1 to 2 hours, I left mine for 2 hours as the Rye flour need a little more time

Turn out onto a floured bench/board

And flatten and stretch into a long rectangle 

Roll up from the short end to form an oval loaf (or really any shape you like)

Brush with water and sprinkle over Caraway seeds 

Slash with panache

And let rise again for 1 hour

Bake in a preheated 200C oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when you tap it

Devour with a slathering of butter, so good.

You could, of course just make it with white flour but as I said, I love any chance to get more fibre into my body, and the Rye flour adds an interesting flavour and texture. I used Caraway seeds as Rye and Caraway are best buds but again you could use any seed you like or indeed leave it bare.

Over to you, have you made Chads Bread? Have you fiddled with the original recipe and used different flours?

Have a lovely day

  1. Try as I might, Fi, but every loaf of bread I have ever made (besides foccaccia) has been a flop! Even when I've used the thermomix it's still like a brick! Meg:)

    1. Hi dearest Meg,
      Please give this one a go, truly easy and it works, not a brick in sight😉have a lovely day,

  2. I found this recipe 2 years ago this March and have made the most fluffiest bread rolls ever. It's such a great recipe I love it. I would be interested in making your rye bread version and caraway seeds are great. I've made little bread sticks and rolled them into it before for the kids school lunch boxes and they are great. Such a great recipe we love it at our house.

    1. Hi Kathy, agreed it’s a great recipe, must try making bread rolls. Have a lovely day,
