Hi guys,

I just made some bread today and because it is so easy to make I thought I share the recipe with you so you can enjoy it as well. Trust me when I say you don’t need many ingredients or to be a Masterchef to make it.


Here are the ingredients:

(By the way it makes one loaf)

500g strong white flour, plus extra for dusting – pick up from any supermarket the Bread Flour (both Sainsbury’s and Waitrose flour packs are green)

2tsp salt

7g sachet fast-action yeast

3tbsp olive oil

300ml lukewarm water

And that’s it!

Now to make the dough. Easy! Mix the dry ingredients (flour, salt and yeast) in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the wet ingredients (the olive oil and the water) and mix well, then tip the mixture onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. If the dough sticks to your fingers add a bit more flour (better add bit by bit). Place the dough in a slightly oiled bowl (use the one you used to mix the ingredients) and cover it with a kitchen towel for an hour.

After an hour line a baking tray with baking parchment, knock back the dough on the work surface and gently mould it into a ball. Place the ball onto the baking parchment, cover it and prove it for further hour. It will double in size.

In the mean time heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas7. Dust the dough with a bit of flour and gently rub it in. Cut a cross into the top of the dough with a sharp knife.


Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped underneath. Cool before cutting.
