Easy Peasy Bread Making
After writing an article giving bread-making tips, a reader asked me to post some of my bread recipes. I have quite a few, but I thought I would start off with a simple wholemeal recipe first. I prefer wholemeal to white bread because it has a stronger flavour, and because it is unrefined all the fibre and goodness is retained.
Serves: 20 Kcals/serving: 76 (based on the brands I used)
Cooking Time: 40 mins Temperature: 180 ༠C/ 160 ༠C fan/350 ༠F/4 Gas
450g strong wholemeal flour 300ml water 3 tsp fast action yeast 1/2 tsp salt
1. Mix the flour, yeast, and salt together, then gradually add the water to form a dough.
2. Once the dough has come together, knead for 10 mins.
3. Leave the dough to prove for an 1hr-1 1/2hrs.
4. Bake in a pre-heated oven.
5. Spoon the mixture into cup cake cases and bake in a pre-heated oven.
You can also use this same recipe to make bread rolls. Simply divide the dough into small balls (between six and eight, depending on the size you prefer) and cook the same way. As the rolls are smaller, they will only need baking for 20 mins.
