Hello food…..


This is bread. I made it. It is warm and yummy.

This is how I made it:

What do I need?

  • 500g Strong Plain White Flour
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 7g Sachet of Quick Action Yeast
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 300ml Water

How do I do it?

  1. Place flour, salt and yeast in a bowl and mix. 
  2. Make a well in the centre and add oil and water.
  3. Combine everything together.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until bread in smooth and silky.
  5. Place in an oiled bowl! Leave for 1 hour until doubled in size.
  6. Knock the bread back (knock air out of it) shape it into an oval and leave to double in size again for an hour.
  7. Score a cross on the top and sprinkle a little dusting of flour if you wish. 🙂
  8. Place in oven at 220c or  Gas Mark 7, for 25 minutes.
  9. Check it is cooked by tapping the bottom. It should sound pretty hollow, then serve with butter (if you like it) or Jess’s Jingle Jam.
