Man bread

Flour (Plain), how ever much you want to use, then half that amount in milk powder, and if your very hard, use bitter instead of water. Whack it in the oven on a med heat. You end up with a very filling bread. Drink with Newcastle brown ale in your shed when the other half has that cr*p xfactor.
