A grant loaf is a unusual type of bread in that there is no kneading involved. This makes it quicker and easier to make than traditional bread, but also makes the loaf denser. The grant loaf was invented entirely by accident by a baker called Doris Grant during the 1940s. She accidentally forgot to knead her dough, and discovered that the end result gives a much stronger, nuttier flavour. I was sceptical of how true this was to begin with, but it is absolutely true; the flavour is much more prominent, and is absolutely delicious. Based on the brands I used, an average slice is about 107 calories. If you like, you can check out my bread making tips.
