Casserole bread

I’m not much of a baker, but this recipe turns out decent bread in a relatively short amount of time.

Ingredients

  • Self raising flour, 4 1/3 cups
  • Fast action dried yeast, 7 grams (or 1 sachet)
  • Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
  • Sugar, 1/2 teaspoon
  • Water, lukewarm, 2 cups

Instructions

  1. Take a large bowl and add 1 cup of flour, yeast, salt, sugar and water then mix with a wooden spoon.
  2. Cup by cup, add the remaining flour, stirring after each until it all starts to come together.
  3. Dust the counter with a little flour, and empty the dough out and give it a good knead for 5 minutes or so.
  4. Put the dough back in the bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for 1 hour.
  5. Take a heavy casserole pan and dust with flour.
  6. Give the dough a brief knead, shape into a ball, place in the casserole pan and leave for another 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 225℃.
  8. On top of the dough ball, score an × with a sharp knife.
  9. Put the lid on the pan and bake for 35 minutes.
  10. Take the lid off and bake until the top of the loaf has turned brown.
