Part of the change to a simpler life has been making our own bread. This has meant me searching and trying ALOT of bread recipes and this is the one I love for quick super easy bread!!
1.5 lbs of Strong white flour
0.5 lbs of Strong wholewheat flour
4 tsp of easy blend yeast
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
Put these into the breadmaker / bowl then add
1/2pt cold milk and 1/2 pt boiling water - mixed together first before adding
If using a breadmaker put on dough program for ref mine takes 1.5 hrs)
If by hand knead dough for 4 mins then cover with cloth and leave to rise for 1.5hrs
After it is ready, knock back and shape into loaf / rolls / pizza bases, sprinkle on toppings (herbs, seeds, cheese) then cover and rise for 1/2hr.
When ready bake in oven 220oC for 20mins.
Remove and cool on a wire rack.
I normally split my 2lb mix into 1 loaf, 6 small rolls and a pizza base.
