1 cup self-raising flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
About 4-5 tablespoons thick yogurt
Mix self-raising flour, salt and enough yogurt to make a soft dough. It is not necessary to knead the dough when you have finished. Put it aside to make the topping.
|This section is not for quick breads, but for breads that use yeast and you need to take the time to knead the dough, and allow it to rise and prove before baking. However, there is nothing nicer than the smell of homemade bread, and once you start, you will find that nothing bought after that quite smells or tastes the same!
Into a bowl put 1.5 pint warm water. Mix in a good desertspoon treacle, molasses, honey or golden syrup. Sprinkle 1 desertspoon dried yeast over water. Cover bowl to keep heat in and leave to stand for a few minutes until yeast is frothy.
Into a large bowl place 2 pounds wholemeal flour and a desertspoon salt.
Grease 2 bread tins well with butter.
Beat liquid gently to make sure that the yeast is evenly distributed. Make a well in the flour and salt and add the liquid. Mix well and place in tins. Leave in a warm place to rise until top of tins.
Bake for 40 minutes at 375° F.
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups warm water (110°C)
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon melted butter
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon salt
Heat oven to 230°C (450°F). Prepare yeast mixture by taking a large bowl and dissolving the sugar in the water and sprinkling the yeast on top. Leave for 10 minutes until frothy. Add the butter to the yeast mixture and then add the flour and salt. Work the dough until the sides of the bowl are clean. Turn out onto a floured board and knead for about 10 minutes until smooth and springy.
Cover with a greased piece of cling film and leave to rise in a warm place until double in size. Remove cling film and turn out onto a lightly floured board. Knock out air bubbles and knead to a firm, elastic dough. Divide dough into two and place in two well-greased loaf tins. Cover with more greased cling film and leave to rise again in a warm place until dough reaches the tops of the tins. Remove plastic film, and bake in a hot oven for 30 - 40 minutes. Loaves should be well risen and should sound hollow when tapped underneath. Turn out and cool on a wire rack. Slice when cool and butter.
