This easy to make bread uses more liquid than many recipes and, with just one rising, it bakes two great loaves with an appealing crumpet like crumb structure. Do try and resist adding extra flour to the sticky dough. When I want decent bread in a hurry this is my ‘go to’ recipe – making one loaf to eat almost immediately and one for later in about an hour and a half.

  1. Measure the boiling water into a jug, add the honey and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add the cold water to the jug.
  3. Rub some oil around the inside of two 500g/1lb bread tins.
  4. Put the flour and yeast, into a large bowl and blend them together.
  5. Stir in the water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the salt.
  6. Stir in the oil.
  7. Using your hands gather everything together into a sticky, doughy mass.
  8. Dust very lightly with flour and knead the sticky dough in the bowl for 100 presses or pick it up and throw it back into the bowl 100 times to form a soft dough mass.
  9. Sprinkle a little flour over the dough and cut it in half.
  10. Shape the dough pieces and put them into the prepared tins.
  11. Dust the top of the dough lightly with flour.
  12. Invert a mixing bowl over the tins and leave them in a warm place to rise for 40 minutes.
  13. Pre-heat the oven.
  14. Remove the bowl and bake for 35-40 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  15. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
