  1. Place the flour in a large mixing bowl. Rub in the butter and stir in the salt and yeast.
  2. Mix in the water and bring together to form a dough.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until the dough is smooth, elastic, pliable and no longer sticky.

  5. Cover with lightly oiled polythene or damp teatowel and leave in a warm place until doubled in size, take approximately 40-50 mins.
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 230 degreesC, 450 degreesF, Gas Mark 8.
  7. Remove the oiled polythene or teatowel an dbake in the pre-heated oven until the base sounds hollow when tapped. Cover loosely with foil if overbrowning during baking.

20 minutes plus 40-50 minutes proving time.

  • 1kg loaf 30-35 mins
  • 0.5kg loaf - 25 minutes
  • Rolls - 15 mintues

I personally made this and found that the mixture would make 2 x 1kg loaf instead of 1 x 1kg which was stated in the recipe.
