EASY HOMEMADE BREAD
This is my easy bread recipe. You can use any kind of flour. If you have a food processor you don’t even have to touch the dough! No kneading, only rising :-)
Just perfect for when it’s too rocky in the galley!
What do you need?
For a ½ kg loaf:
• ½ kg bread flour
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1 small bag dried yeast
• 300 ml water (use milk for a richer texture)
• 25 gram butter or 25 ml of olive oil
Preheat the oven on 220°C.
Warm the water until lukewarm, add the dried yeast.
Wait a few minutes and suddenly clouds of yeast will develop in the water. That is what we want.
Throw all the ingredients into a food processor and mix on high speed for 10 seconds.
Mix for another 5 minutes on ‘kneading’ stand (or low speed). Your dough is ready now!
If you don’t have a food processor, dust your bench top with flour and knead the dough by hand.
If it still sticks to the fingers, add some extra flour.
Use a silicone bread tray, or a tin tray, buttered and floured, so the dough won’t stick.
Cover the dough with a tea towel and let it rise for a few hours, in a warm spot out of the wind. (in the sun is ok)
Wait until the volume has tripled.
Bake for 25 minutes in a preheated oven on 220°C.
