How to make easy crusty bread By Milo 4th Form


2 cups of plain flower(300g)

1 cup of self raising flour(150g)

Half a teaspoon of yeast(1g)

One and a half teaspoons of salt(10)

1 and a half cups of water (350ml of water)


First get all your dry ingredients and put them in a mixing bowl and mix

Second add the water and mix for a couple of minutes with your spatula.

Cover your bowl with cling film and leave to rise in a warm (not hot) place for 24 hours.

When you are ready to cook your bread, preheat your oven to gas mark 8 (230 degrees Celsius / 450 degrees Fahrenheit). 

Using your spatula, drop the sticky dough on a heavily floured work surface. 

Shape the dough in a sort of ball and roll it in the flour so it gets covered all around.

Place your cooking dish in the oven to warm for 30 minutes.

 After 30 minutes, make sure the dough is nicely covered in flour all around and plop it in your chosen cooking dish (no grease needed, just put some flour in the bottom of your dish if you are worried the bread might stick).

 Cook for 30 minutes with the lid (or foil) on, and a further 15 minutes uncovered, and ta-da! You have delicious home-made bread…

Now good luck to resist the temptation to eat it as it is on your cooling rack…
