Prep Time 20 minutes - Total Time 4 hours - Makes 1 loaf

Bread has to be one of the most bought items from a shop, but have you ever thought of making your own? You will be surprised how easy and how satisfying it is, plus it's cheaper then buying it from a shop.


  • 500 g flour 00 or strong white flour.

  • 7 g sachet of fast action yeast.

  • 1 tsp of salt.

  • 1 tsp of caster sugar.

  • 1 tsp of olive oil.

  • 280 ml of slightly warm water.


  1. First start by pouring the water, yeast, olive oil and sugar in a jug and give it a good mix, leave to stand for 10 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl mix the flour, salt and make a well in the middle. Now gradually pour in the yeast mix and combine with the flour using a fork. Once all the yeast mix is added you can pour the dough out onto a worktop and knead for 10 minutes.

  3. Shape the dough and place into a large floured bowl. Cover with clingfilm or a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place until double in size, anything between 1-2 hours.

  4. Once the dough has doubled in size knock it back and once again shape, cover and leave to double in size again.

  5. Whilst the dough is doing its thing get a large ovenproof dish with a lid and pop onto middle shelf a preheated oven set at 200℃ (with the lid on) and leave for a least an hour to get really hot.

  6. Once the dough is ready carefully remove the dish from the oven and place the dough inside. Make a couple of cuts on the top of the dough, splash with some water pop the lid back on and back into the oven for 30-35 minutes. To check if the bread is baked it should sound hollow when tapped underneath.
