  • 1 tsp Doves Farm Quick Yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt

Method

  1. Put the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.

  4. Knead the dough in the bowl, or on a work surface, for 100 presses, without adding flour.
  5. Cover the dough bowl with a large upturned mixing bowl and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour.
  6. Rub some oil around the inside of an oven or baking tray.
  7. Knead the dough for another 100 presses then shape it into a large ball.
  8. Place the dough ball on the prepared tray, cover with the large upturned mixing bowl and leave it to rise in a warm place for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Pre-heat the oven.
  10. Remove the bowl and bake for 35-40 minutes.
  11. Turn the bread out of the tin, tap the base and if it sounds hollow, the bread is cooked.
  12. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
