  • 7 g/1 Sachet Dry Yeast
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 350 g Strong White Flour
  • 150 g Strong Whole-Wheat Flour
  • 75 g Pea Protein (or other unflavoured protein)
  • 200 g Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 650 ml Warm Water


  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Greaseproof Paper
  • Loaf Tin
  • Oven


  • In a small bowl mix 250 ml of warm water, the yeast and sugar.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes*
  • Add and mix the white and wholewheat flour, protein and vital wheat gluten in a large bowl
  • Make a hole in the middle of the flour mixture 
  • Add the yeast/water/sugar mix and ~¾ of the remaining water
  • Mix until all the ingredients come together to make a ball
  • Lightly flour a surface
  • Knead the dough for 15 minutes
  • Lightly flour a clean bowl
  • Shape the dough into a ball
  • Place in the floured bowl and cover with a clean tea towel
  • Leave to rise for 2-3 hours in a warm place
  • Lightly flour a surface
  • Take the risen dough and knead again for a few minutes
  • Shape the dough to fit a bread tin
  • Line a bread tin with flour
  • Place the dough into the tin
  • Leave to rise for ~30 mins in a warm place
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180oC for 45-60 minutes⁺
  • Leave to cool before slicing

* The mixture should have some bubbles. If it doesn’t your yeast may be inactive (dead) so I’d recommend buying some more. 

If the mixture feels dry add the rest of the water a little at a time. If the mixture feels too wet add a bit more flour.

⁺ To test if bread is cooked, take it out the tin and give the bottom a knock. If it sounds hollow it is most likely cooked.

These coffee and salted caramel cupcakes were born because I couldn’t decide between baking salted caramel cupcakes or coffee and walnut cakes. So I decided I didn’t have to choose!
I like the coffee flavour to be strong. Hence the 3 teaspoons! If you prefer a more mellow flavour just add a little less – it’s all zen!
