Basic recipe for bread making machine.
500gm strong white bread flour
400ml warm water
1 and 1/2 level teaspoons dried fast action yeast
one tablespoon light olive oil
one tablespoon runny honey
level teaspoon, sea salt
one tablespoon of dried caraway seeds.
Put the warm water , honey and yeast into the bread machine. Add the flour, oil, caraway seeds and salt. Set for a basic loaf and start. Let it go for about 15 minutes, then open the lid and toss in a handful of wholemeal flour, then reset the programme and start again. Leave to run the full cycle.
You get a lovely moist light bread with a golden crust and aromatic caraway seeds which are not only tasty, but help to aid digestion.
I try to use natural ingredients and stay away from refined sugar, table salt which has additives, and butter.
In place of unhealthy butter, I use oils. Today's loaf was olive oil, but I also use sesame oil, linseed oil, sunflower oil. This loaf is vegetarian/vegan
