Ingredients

Change Quantities:
  1. Put the flour, yeast, and salt into a large bowl and blend them together well.
  2. Pour in the water and stir until everything looks craggy and lumpy.
  3. Add the oil and stir into a dough.
  4. Cover the bowl with a large upturned bowl or large saucepan and leave overnight (12-18 hours).
  5. Rub some oil around the inside of a 1kg/2lb bread tin.
  6. Using a spatula press down the dough and scrape it into a doughy mass.
  7. Tip the dough into the prepared tin and smooth the top. Invert an upturned bowl over the tin and leave it to rise in a warm place to double in size, about 2 hours depending on the room temperature.
  8. Pre-heat the oven.
  9. Remove the upturned bowl and bake for 40-45 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  10. Leave the bread to cool on a wire rack.

Worked like a dream- my wife thinks it is my best ever loaf. But do not use the teaspoon of yeast the recipe recommends; use 7g or 1/4oz.
