Quick and Simple Bread Recipe

Whilst clearing out my kitchen cupboards the other day, I happened to find all the ingredients that I had been leftover from me making bread and I realised that I never shared my recipe on here.

Making bread needn't be complicated and below is a really quick and simple method for creating your very own loaf.

* 500g Strong White Bread Flour (you can change this for wholemeal or granary)
* 7g Packet of Fast Acting Dried Yeast
* 300ml Hot Water from the tap
* 2 Tbsp Sunflower Oil
* 1Tbsp Golden Syrup
* 1 Tsp Salt


* Sieve the flour, yeast and salt into a bowl and mix.

* In 300ml of hot water, stir in the oil and the syrup.

* Mix the liquid with the dry ingredients to make a soft dough.

* Lightly flour a surface and turn the dough onto it, knead for around 5 minutes or until the dough no longer feels sticky. (you can use more flour if needed)

* Pop the dough back in the bowl and cover with cling film, leave to rise for about an hour.

* Whilst the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 180Âșc.

* After an hour take the dough out of the bowl, make into whatever shape you would like and put a few slashes across the top of the loaf.

* Bake for around 35 minutes or until golden brown.
