The Recipe


  • 650ml tepid water (from a boiled kettle and allow to cool so you can touch and it doesn’t feel “hot” or cold – just warm)
  • 1 Sachet of dried yeast
  • 1 kg Strong bread flour
  • Pinch of salt


  • Pour the water into a bowl and add the dried yeast
  • Mix up the yeast with the water (if you’d like, activate the yeast by adding a pinch of sugar now)
  • Leave the mixture for a couple of minutes to see the mixture start bubbling
  • Add most of the kilo of flour into the water and mix with a fork
  • Add your pinch of salt
  • Mix with your hands and begin to knead the dough – if your hands get sticky, flour your hands
  • Keep mixing until the dough comes out in a ball
  • Dust the surface and knead the dough by stretching it and moving it around
  • Dust the dough and put into a ball, then put back into a bowl, cover, and leave for 1.5 hours to rise
  • Knock back the dough by punching it, let it fall, then knead the dough again to remove all the bubbles.
  • Split the dough into two (this batch makes two loaves)
  • Dust flour onto a baking tray, knead your half dough into your shape and leave on your tray
  • Leave to prove for half an hour to double in size
  • Cook in a hot oven, at 180 degrees C for 35 minutes.

  1. Hi there, cooking bread with my 3 daughters whilst in lockdown. It will be ready in 35 minutes, let’s hope it’s not like a brick! They are mesmerised by Jamie (and Buddy) and want to try his risotto, chocolate cake and omelette in a baguette next. Thank you. Joanna
