malted loaf

I don't have an airing cupboard to help bread prove, so I use a cheap bread machine and just use the dough setting. 

500g malted brown flour

7g dried yeast

10g sunflower oil

7g sea salt

300ml lukewarm water

  • Pop all the ingredients into a bread machine on the dough setting.
  • At the end of the programme, punch down the bread and knead.
  • Shape and place on a baking tray sprinkled with polenta. 
  • Brush the bread with oil and leave to rise for a second time.
  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 8 and placed a roasting tin with water on the bottom.
  • Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes. Tap the base, it will sound hollow when baked through.
