Ingredients

For the recipe  Classic White Bread Loaf

For the Bread:

500 g Strong White Bread Flour

Preparation

For the Bread

Step 1: Place the flour in a large bowl, add the yeast to one side of the bowl and the sugar and salt to the other, mix to combine. Make a well in the centre and the melted butter and tepid water. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until all combined.

Step 2: Tip the dough onto a surface dusted with flour and knead for 8-10 minutes until the dough is elastic and smooth.

Step 3: Place the dough in a bowl greased with oil and cover with oiled cling film and leave to rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.

Step 4: Once the dough has doubled in size, tip onto a lightly floured surface and lightly knead for about a minute to knock out the air bubbles. Shape the dough into a ball. Flour a baking tray and place the ball of dough on the baking tray and dust with flour and cut a cross in the top of loaf about 10cm long.

Step 5: Cover the baking tray in oiled cling film and leave the dough to rise for 30-60 minutes – to check the dough is fully proofed make an indent with your finger into the side of the loaf, if the indent stays then the dough is ready to bake.

Step 6: Bake the bread at 200°C /180°C fan/Gas mark 6 for 25-30 minutes. The base of the bread should sound hollow when tapped when the bread is baked.

Step 7: Leave the bread to cool on a wire rack. Now enjoy your wonderful homemade white bread loaf!
