Ingredients

1lb Shipton Mill white bread flour

1lb Shipton Mill wholemeal flour

14g dried yeast

300ml lukewarm milk

300ml lukewarm water

1 tbs of butter

2 tsp salt

 

 

3 tbs of oil

 

Method

 

1. Place the yeast in a bowl with 100ml of the lukewarm water until frothy, about 10mins

2. Add both flours, rest of the water, milk, butter, salt and oil and mix to form a dough. if too sticky add a little more flour.

3. Lightly flour surface and knead dough for 10mins until it bounces back when you touch it! Leave to double it's size under a damp cloth in a warm place for an hour or so.

4. Once doubled, knead the dough again to knock back any air. Shape into your loaf (I made 2 small ones but you can make one large loaf), place on baking tray, make slits on the top and brush with a little milk. I placed some poppy seeds on top leave to rise for 30-40mins, place in pre heated oven at 200°C for 20-30mins until bottom sounds hollow when tapped with your hand and top is golden brown.

Hi Author! This is casually flour surface and knead dough for 10 mins until it bounces back when you touch it! leave to double it's size under a damp cloth in the warm place for an hour roughly.
