Baking bread!


The kids have been asking me for ages to bake bread at home.. And recently they gave been relishing the fresh bread I buy from the supermarket…

Ok so here goes!

We need

500g bread flour

1.5 tsp. salt

1 tspn sugar

15g softened butter or 15ml vegetable oil

Sachet of yeast.

About 300ml water 1 part boiling 2 parts cold

(I used Allinsons flour and yeast)

  1. Put flour in a bowl and add salt
  2. Stir in yeast and sugar
  3. Slowly add water to create a soft dough
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead of around 10 minutes until smooth and elastic
  5. Shape dough, or put in a tin, cover and place somewhere warm for around 45 minutes until doubles in size
  6. Preheat oven to 230 degrees Celsius
  7. Place dough in oven for 15 minutes
  8. Reduce temperature to 200 degrees Celsius and bake for further 15-20 minutes, until bread has risen and is go.den brown, and sounds hollow when tapped underneath.
  9. Turn out and cool on a wire rack
  10. ENJOY!
