Today marks day 4 of fresh week. This evenings meal included Tuna Pasta Bake, focaccia and Carrot Cake!
250g strong white bread flour
1 tsp salt
1 sachet dried easy blend yeast
1 tbsp olive oil
200ml/ oz cold water
Rosemary or herbs of your choice
Place the flour, salt, yeast, olive oil, herbs and 150ml of the water into a large bowl. Gently stir with a wooden spoon to form a dough then knead the dough in the bowl for five minutes, gradually adding the remaining water.
Stretch the dough by hand in the bowl for about five minutes.
Tip the dough onto an oiled work surface and continue kneading for five more minutes. Return the dough to the bowl, cover and leave to rise until doubled in size.
Grease a baking sheet and place the flattened dough on then leave to prove for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Drizzle the bread with oil then bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Serve hot or warm.
