Ingredients
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Whole wheat flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Active dry yeast 1⁄4 Ounce
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  1 % low fat milk 1 (plus little extra for glazing)
  Margarine/Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Egg white 1
  Vegetable oil cooking spray 1 (for greasing)
  Poppy seeds 1 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. In a bowl, mix flour, whole-wheat flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.

MAKING
2. In a saucepan, heat milk, margarine and add to the flours and mix until dough forms. Add egg white and form a fairly firm dough.
3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for about 10 minutes; shape into a ball. Lightly grease a bowl with vegetable oil spray and place dough in it.
4. Turn the dough to coat lightly with oil and prevent drying out. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place (80°-85°F) for 2 hours, until doubled in size.

FINALISING
5. Punch the dough down , shape into a large oval. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
6. With a knife cut 4 to 6 diagonal slashes on top of the loaf, brush with milk, and sprinkle poppy seeds on top.
7. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes at 25o degrees centigrade, until loaf sounds hollow when tapped with the fingertips. Cool on a wire rack.

SERVING
8. Serve at room temperature.
