Easy Emmer Mixed

350g strong white flour

150g emmer flour

10g salt

7g quick dried yeast

3 tbsp olive oil

300ml lukewarm water

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl with a spoon. Add the water and olive oil, having made a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Mix to combine. When combined, tip out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or so, until elastic and stretchy. Put the dough into a large bowl which has been oiled with a neutral oil (e.g. rapeseed). Cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm place for 1-2 hours until doubled in size.

Once the dough has doubled its volume, knock it out with a couple of punches (no more), and shape it into a hemisphere. Put it on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Cover again with the tea towel and return it to a warm place to prove - it should take around an hour for it to double in size. At that stage, cut into the top with a knife. Dust with a little more emmer flour. Put it into a pre-heated oven at 220 degrees C, (or 200 Fan / Gas mark 7). and bake for 25-30 mins.
