Homemade Bread

There is nothing quite like the smell of warm, freshly baked, homemade bread. This traditional farmhouse bread will create a mouth-watering aroma while it is baking!
Serves 1kg loaf Prep time: 10 minutes Rest time: 80-150 minutes, Cooking time: 25-35 minutes

If you have never baked your own bread, the thought can be quite daunting, but these step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. Although this recipe could be made by hand, we used the Dualit Hand Mixer to save time and energy!

Shopping List

  • 500g strong white flour & extra for dusting
  • 25g butter, cubed
  • 1 ¼ tsp salt
  • 7g easy bake dried yeast
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 300ml warm water
  • 1kg loaf tin, lightly greased

Method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
  3. Using the Hand Mixer with dough blade attachments, slowly add the water until the flour forms a craggy ball. You may not need to add all of the water so only use what you need.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Leave to rise in a warm place for approximately 20-30 minutes.
  5. Knead the dough 3-4 times to knock the air out, then remove and transfer to a lightly flavoured surface to shape. Place in the tin, cover with a clean cloth and leave to rise in a warm place for another 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  6. Lightly dust the loaf with flour, using a small sieve and slash a few times with a sharp serrated knife. Bake on the middle shelf for 25-35 minutes or until the crust is dark brown and the base sounds hollow when tapped with your finger. Cool on a wire rack.
