This is the loaf I have made this morning and the house smells so good 🙂
Heat Over Gas Mark 7 220 degrees C 425 degrees F
For the yeast liquid
1 teaspoon sugar (5ml)
3/4 pint of warm water (375ml)
2 teaspoons dried yeast (2 x 5ml)
For the dough
1 1/2 lb strong bread flour (600g)
2 teaspoons salt (2 x 5ml)
1.2 oz margarine (15g)
Dissolve the sugar in the warm water and sprinkle over the dried yeast. Leave for 10 minutes
Sieve the flour into a bowl. Add the salt and then rub in the margarine.
Add the yeast mixture to the flour and work until a firm dough.
Place on a board and knead for about 10 minutes.
Leave to prove until the dough has proved. I made my loaf in a round cake tin as thought would be fun. Worked really well.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.
