With lockdown and Covid restrictions, baking has been on the rise and became a more regular occurrence,even in households who never baked before!! This recipe here is quite a basic bread but the resulting loaf is really lovely and the beautiful baking smells are so comforting especially on darker Winter days. For more fibre, use a strong wholemeal flour.
500g strong flour (And a bit more for kneading)
1.5 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive oil (Helps give the bread a nice colour!)
1x7g sachet active dry yeast
3 teaspoons sugar
300ml warm water (Not too hot or it will kill the yeast) Preheat a casserole or pyrex dish with a lid for 30minutes at 250’c (has to have a lid in order for the bread to rise in the oven)
