Product Description

Milled on traditional French Burr stones, our Canadian flour produces a very strong, pliable dough due to its superior protein content.
The Marriage's Family
W & H Marriage & Sons Ltd has been milling flour in Essex since 1824.
Marriage's was founded by twins William and Henry nearly 200 years ago. Today the fifth and sixth generations of the Marriage family continue the milling tradition. We create our exceptionally strong stoneground wholemeal flour by milling 100% Canadian Western Red Spring wheat, world renowned for its excellent milling and baking quality, on Victorian French Burr millstones which play a vital part in the flour's taste and texture.

Marriage's range includes organic, speciality and stoneground flours.

Wholemeal Bread
Preparation Time
15 minutes plus proving time
Baking Time
Small loaves
20-25 minutes
Large loaf
30-35 minutes

Makes 2 small loaves or 1 large loaf

500g Very Strong Wholemeal 100% Canadian flour
7g dried fast action yeast (or 14g fresh yeast)
10g fat or olive oil
7g sea salt
330ml lukewarm water

Baking by Hand
1. Grease the bread tin(s). Place the flour, salt, yeast and fat into a large mixing bowl. Mix the fat through the flour and make a well in the centre of the flour mixture.
2. Add most of the water to the well, keeping a little in reserve, and mix to a soft dough. Add the remaining water if necessary.
3. Tip the dough onto a table and knead for 8-10 minutes.
4. Place the dough back into the bowl and cover with oiled cling film or a damp tea towel. Rest in a warm place until the dough doubles in size. This will take approximately 45 minutes
5. Split the dough into two pieces if desired.
Mould the dough round and fold to the shape of the tin(s). Place the dough piece into the tin, seam down, cover with oiled cling film or a damp tea towel. Put in a warm place and allow to rise about 1cm above the tin. This will take 45-60 minutes.
6. Uncover and bake in a preheated oven, 220°C fan/240°CX/430°F/Gas 8. Bake small loaves for 20-25 minutes or a large loaf for 30-35 minutes.
7. Remove the loaf from the tin. Check it is baked by tapping the bottom of the loaf - it should sound hollow. Place on a wire rack to cool.

Using a Bread Machine
We recommend following the manufacturer's instructions, particularly the order in which to add ingredients and the water quantity.

Recipe Tip
To make a wholemeal and oat loaf: after proving, roll the dough in a bowl containing a small handful of jumbo oats, then place into the bread tin for the second prove.

Marriages Picnic Rolls

Marriages Picnic Rolls

These flours are ideal for making bread rolls: well-risen and crusty yet with a moist light crumb. Adding a good extra-mature Cheddar cheese to the dough, and to the top of the rolls before baking, transforms them into a savoury treat for picnics, filled with salad or sliced ham, or to go with a flask of hot soup. The dough can also be baked as one large loaf in a 900g tin, or used to make pizza bases.

Marriage's Extra Spicy Hot Cross Buns

Marriage's Extra Spicy Hot Cross Buns

This recipe is made from both white and wholemeal bread flours to give plenty of flavour but a fairly light texture. The buns are excellent toasted and freeze well.
