Making homemade bread is so simple. The results are super tasty too. Why not get the kids involved and make it together? We love getting messy together and the smell of freshly made bread lingers for hours after.

After chucking the flour in a bowl, we made a well in middle and added half the water. We then added the yeast, salt and sugar into the water and mixed together. Slowly we folded the flour into the water and then added the rest of the water. With floury hands we mixed and kneaded it together firstly by the little lady and then more vigorously by daddy, 5 or 6 messy minutes later we chucked the dough into a bowl and went to play Uno while leaving it to rise.

………….. uno, snakes and ladders and a bit of YouTube later (approximately an hour and the dough had roughly doubled in size) it was ready to knead and twist and pull and push and rub again…. once proved for a second time (1 or 2 minutes) we put the dough into a greased bread tin and left again for about an 30 minutes.

Hands washed, we put the loaf tin into a pre heated oven (180 degrees) for 25/30 minutes.

4

Once cooked I popped it out of the tin and left to rest on the side.

Apparently to check if it’s done tap the bottom and it will sound hollow, if it doesn’t just put back in the oven for a bit.
