Ingredients

500g PURE Bread Flour 1kg
440mls/g warm water
8g/2 tsp PURE Dried Yeast 150g
1 egg, beaten (medium)
½tsp salt


Preparation Method

  1. Weigh out the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add ½ tsp sugar to the water, then stir until dissolved.
  3. Using either a wooden spoon or an electric mixer mix the flour, water and egg together on a low speed for several minutes. Scrape the bowl down and then continue to mix on a higher speed (or more vigorously if using the spoon) for another 5 minutes until you have a thick smooth batter.
  4. Pour the batter into two 1lb greased loaf tins (6”x4”x3”) or into a single 2lb loaf tin.
  5. Cover with a damp cloth or place inside and oiled plastic bag and leave in a warm place to prove for 30 minutes or until level with the top of the tin.
  6. Glaze with oil (a spray is ideal for this) and bake at 200°C (400°F) Gas 6 for 25 -30 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool before slicing. Once cool, store in an air tight container and use within 2-3 days.
