  • 750 grams bread flour (50-50 plain white – wholemeal)
  • 1 teaspoon dried yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • half a litre or 1 pint tepid water

Method – Step 1

Mix all the dry ingredients together using a spoon, then add the water. You need to add it slowly at the end and you may need to add some more. It’s important that there is no dry flour.

Step 2

Cover with a damp tea towel and leave overnight. (Or until it has doubled in size)

Step 3

Oil the bread tin (I try to keep one tin for bread and avoid washing it so that the bread doesn’t stick!)

Step 4

With a wooden spoon, stir the dough until it is a smaller mass. Then pour it into the tin.

Step 5

Place in a COLD oven, turn the oven on to 180°C and cook for 55 minutes.

Step 6

Place on a cooling rack to cool and you’re done! It’s as easy as that! Enjoy warm with some butter, you could even have a go at making you’re own homemade jam or marmalade.

(If you want a very soft crust then wrap in a damp tea towel while it is cooling.)
