For all you people that think bread is hard to make, it’s not, honest! If i can make it then I’m pretty sure you can!
I came across this recipe ages ago thanks to my bezzy mate Google. I can’t remember where I found it or which site it was from but if you recognise it THANKYOU!
I was looking for a D safe recipe as most breads contain something she can’t have.
Sorry it’s not very neat but I scribbled it down after I’d made it the first time. I didn’t want to lose it so added it to my little recipe book. Yes Iv got my own recipe book, everytime I find something D safe that works in it goes! Hopefully by the time D is old enough to cook she will have a nice collection of D safe recipes to use.
Iv got to say this bread is absolutely gorgeous, Iv made it many times now and it’s never gone wrong, in the recipe it says honey or equivalent, I just tend to use whatever is in my cupboard at the time, honey, maple syrup, golden syrup, it all works, think it’s just meant to give the bread a slight sweetness!
As for the yeast, I use the little boxes you can buy, usually has about 8 little sachets in, I’d never played with yeast before until making this bread, just make sure the water is baby bath warm! I used cold water once, didn’t work!
Looks revolting, doesn’t smell much better but that’s how it should look! Oh and any old flour works, plain, strong, wholemeal, Iv tried them all.
I can have this bread made from start to finish in an hour, it’s definitely easy peasy!
The best part about this bread has got to be the kneading! It’s very very therapeutic! Had a run in with the parents and In-laws this morning so taking it out on the dough was just what the Dr ordered!
Pic 1 is before proving.
Pic 2 is after it’s been proved, dough should double in size!
Pic 3 is ready for the oven.
And the finished loaves! Cooling nicely!
D has ordered mummy’s bread made into toast for tea with some beans, I might have a slice or 2 with 3″ of butter on!
