My loaf

Amazing white bread that you cannot leave alone!! Will make 2 good sized loafs, or numerous white rolls if wanted. I normally cook one loaf on the day and after the second rise place 2nd shaped bread in the fridge overnight, and after leaving at room temp for an hour or two, cook in same way.

2 and 1/3 cups warm water

1 satchet dried yeast

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon salt

5 1/2 cups 00 grade flour


Place the water and yeast in a bowl, leave for 5 mins, then add sugar, olive oil, salt and flour, mix well for roughly 8 mins  add a little more flour if too wet until it all comes together. Leave for 10 mins, then knead for 20 seconds, repeat process twice more, then cover and leave to rise. Once risen, turn out onto a floured surface, cut in half and roll out to approx 1/2 centimetre then lightly fold over (like you do a swiss roll), tuck ends under to make tidy, score top if you want, and place on a baking sheet to rise. Once risen, brush wish beaten egg, sprinkle with sesame, nigella seeds, cheese or any favoured topping and place in oven 180c for approx 35-40 mins. Enjoy!!
