The best white loaf

My favourite bread recipe!

bread

Ingredients

500g flour
1 sachet fast-action yeast
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
300ml warmish water

Method

Mix the flour, yeast and salt. Add the olive oil and gradually stir in the tepid water, adding only enough to make a soft dough. Knead using your hands on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes or so, until the dough is smooth and bounces back.  Place in an oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise until doubled in size.

Oil a large loaf tin (I always use butter to grease for bread, but olive oil is ok too).  Knock back the dough and form into a log and place into tin.  Cover the tin with a damp tea towel and let rise until doubled in size once again.

Heat oven to 220C/425F.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.  Place on cooling sheet and brush with butter.
