I have made some soup and decided it needs home made bread. So I have dried fast acting yeast and flour - does anyone have a recipe they have used - or can they link to one they have used and knows it works - I am a competent cook but have avoided making bread for some reason. And I'll be doing it the old fashioned way in the oven - lol
Is there a recipe on the flour packet? It's dead easy TBH, warm water + yeast, mix with flour, knead and allow to rise then cook. I don't do it very often, but I tend to be a bit slapdash and it works just fine.
I just had a quick look for a plain bread recipe on the net but they all seem to be fancy ones.
It tasted good - maybe needed a little more salt. I will do it again but the crust was a little too hard so maybe I will try the water in the oven option. What temp do you suggest for the oven? I also need to buy a bread knife it can get quite dangerous without one.
Oven needs to be full whack for 10 mins then 200 degrees for 30 mins with the water in the bottom! The water makes all the difference. been baking all our bread for 3 years and only discovered the water trick this summer. It really works!
