INGREDIENTS

500g / 1lb 2oz Strong white bread flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon bread yeast

2 teaspoon sugar

300ml / 10fl oz water

 

NOTE: A bread tin is good but the dough can simply be placed on a baking tray.

COOKING METHOD

YOUR CHILD

  THE ADULT
Always wash your hands before cooking!Wash your hands!   Before cooking make sure everyone washes their hands!

YOUR CHILD - Put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a largish bowl and mix all the ingredients together well. Hands will do a fine job.  


Mix the ingredients before adding water


YOUR CHILD - Slowly add the water to the mixture and blend it in.
When all the water is added, continue mixing with your hands for 5 minutes more. Place the dough on a floured surface.
 


Mixing dough


YOUR CHILD - Knead the dough (see below) for 10 more minutes. Separate some of the dough and make three 10cm (4in) rolls from the dough. Fit the rest of the dough into the oiled bread tin or on an oiled baking tray.  


Dough plait

To knead dough, place it on a floured surface, flatten it out. Fold it in half towards you then flatten it again with the palms of your hand. Repeat. For kids, just let them bash at it, fold it in half and carry on bashing. Our bread turned out fine doing just that!

YOUR CHILD -This may need some help from you. Plait the three rolls of dough as shown in the picture.  


 
YOUR CHILD - Cover the dough with a wet tea towel (to stop the surface drying) and place it somewhere at room temperature away from draughts. Two hours later the dough will have doubled in size and be ready for baking.  


The dough has now risen

YOU: Preheat the oven to 230C / 450F. Put the dough in middle of the oven for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven when the top is a light golden brown.

Cooked bread plait ALL THE FAMILY - Eat. Delicious with just butter, but even better with jam or peanut butter.


Fresh homemade bread

You will discover why it's said,
Nothing is tastier than fresh bread!
