RECIPE by @shalisesoceansupport 500g (3 1/3 cups) plain flour 2 teaspoons (7g) dried yeast 1 teaspoon salt 375mls (1 1/2 cups) lukewarm water Grease a 10 x 20cm (base measurement) loaf pan Place the plain flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl and mix well to combine. Make a well in the centre and add the water to the dry ingredients. The water needs to be lukewarm to activate the yeast and encourage it to grow. Use a large spoon to stir until combined and then use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a ball and place into a large bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp tea towel and then place it in a warm, draught-free place to allow the dough to rise (so it’s double the original size). Preheat oven to 200°C (Or 390 degrees fahrenheit). Place the dough in the greased loaf pan. Stand the pan in a warm, draught-free place, as before, for about 30 minutes or until the dough has risen about 1cm about the top of the pan. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Turn the loaf immediately onto a wire rack and allow to cool slightly before eating.
