Wholegrain raisinbread

So whenever I go to the bakery (which isn’t an awful lot to be honest but ok) whole grain raisin bread is something I’ve never found. Now I’m not a fan of white bread anymore, I’ve become to find it tasting like well… nothing really. So if you want a healthier version of raisin bread, here’s where you’ll find it.

Keyword bread, healthy, raisinbread, wholegrain


  • 500 grams wholegrain wheat
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 15 grams honey
  • 30 grams fresh yeast alternatively you can use 20gr of dry yeast
  • 300-400 grams raisins
  • 300 ml lukewarm water you can replace this with buttermilk but this will add calories


  1. Let the raisins soak in some water for 10- 15 mins and then drain them

  2. Put the flower on your working tray and make a little hole in it. Put the salt around the edges of the flower so it doesn't immediately touch the yeast in the next step. This will make the yeast less effective

  3. Dissolve the yeast in a little bit of the water/buttermilk

  4. Poor the dissolved yeast in the hole and mix the rest of the water with the bread. If the bread is too dry add some flower, else add some water. Knead the bread for around 5-6 minutes

  5. Cover the bread with a semi-wet towel and let it rest for 25 mins

  6. Shape the bread in the shape you want or put it in your cooking basket

  7. Let it rest for another good 20 mins, meanwhile pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees celcius and add a bowl with water to it. This will make the crust of your bread better

  8. After those 20 mins add the bread and bake it for a good 35 minutes

  9. Remove from the oven
