I developed this recipe to teach 5 year olds how to make bread. I now get accosted by their parents almost on a daily basis for the recipe because it is so easy. It only requires one 5min knead and is pretty much left alone to do its thing.
- 600g Strong White Bread Flour
- 7g Easy Dry Yeast
- 1tsp brown sugar
- 2tsp salt
- 400ml lukewarm water
- 3 tblsp melted butter
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and then knead either by hand or by machine for 5mins. Put the dough in a loaf tin or divide into small rolls. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for approx 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size. Cook in a preheated oven 200c/400f for 30 mins.
And that is it.
You can use 400g of white and 200g of wholemeal flour if you wish.
