Bread (195)      Honey (50)      Sourdough (4)      Pollen (2)     


After finding a recipe for a honey loaf a while back, I decided that I would change it to my own tastes. Instead of a white bloomer, I have made a wholemeal sourdough to give it deeper flavours. I also swapped almonds for pollen to celebrate every aspect of a bees working life - and of course, the eventual arrival of spring. It has finally come. Based on the brands I used, if you divide it into twenty portions, then each is about 106 calories.

Preparation Time: 7 hours
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 1 loaf

Ingredients



450g wholemeal bread flour



300g sourdough starter



60g clear honey
1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp salt



2 tsp bee pollen

Method



Mix the flour, starter, 50g honey, salt, and pollen together.



Gradually pour in the water to form a dough.



Knead the dough for ten minutes, then leave to prove for about six hours or until it has doubled in size.
Pre-heat your oven to 190 ༠C/ 170 ༠C fan/400 ༠F/6 Gas.
Score the top of the bread dough.



Squeeze the juice from your lemon into 10g honey and warm in the microwave for a few seconds.



Brush the mixture over the top of the bread.



Bake the bread in the oven.
