Bread in a bag

Here’s one for the kiddies if they’re still on school holidays and feeling bored…..(What can I do Mum/Dad?) Embrace the mess, it’s easily cleaned up after especially if they help you.

It’ll be easier for the kiddies to believe they’re doing it all on their own if, before they start, you’ve already measured out all the ingredients into bowls ready for them to use.

Lets get started kids! Oh, don’t forget to wash your hands first 😉

 

Ingredients

3 cups plain flour, divided

3 Tbsp white sugar

1 pack yeast

1 cup warm water

3 Tbsp olive oil

1 1/2 tsp salt

Large resealable bag

Mini loaf tins

 

Method

Put one cup flour into the bag then add the sugar, yeast and water. Seal your bag and smoosh it until it’s all mixed together. Now let it rest for 10 minutes while you play for a bit. When you come back from playing there will be lots of bubbles in the bag, this is good.

Now add the salt, olive oil and a second cup of flour to the bag and smoosh again. Add the last cup of flour and give it all another really good smooshing!

Turn out the dough onto a well floured table and knead it for 10 minutes until  its smooth.

Divide the dough into the loaf tins, this amount of dough will make 6 mini loaves or you could just make 1 large loaf. Cover the loaves with a tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes while you do a clean up of the table.

Bake in a preheated oven 190C/gas 5 for 25 – 30 minutes.

Enjoy with butter while still warm.

Pizza 1

 

This one is a quick recipe that involves no more than mixing a few basic ingredients and patting the dough into the pan. No need to wait for the dough to rise with this.

375g/13 oz plain flour

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp sugar

75g/1/4 oz dried active yeast

2 Tbsp olive oil

225ml/8 oz warm water

 

Method

 

Pre heat oven to 190C/gas 5.

Combine flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl.

Mix in oil and warm water.

Spread out the dough on a large pan, or 2 pans and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and add your favourite toppings.

Turn oven down to 175C/gas 4 and bake for a further 20 – 25 minutes, keeping an eye on it as it might need turning halfway through baking.

 

Malted Loaf May 9, 2012

A malt and sultana loaf makes the perfect breakfast or tea-time treat. Serve it sliced and generously spread with butter.

This is a bread machine loaf.

Makes 1, 1lb loaf

Ingredients

200ml/7fl oz warm water

15ml/1Tbsp golden syrup

22ml/1 1/2 Tbsp malt extract

350g/12oz white bread flour

22ml/1 1/2 Tbsp skimmed milk powder

2.5ml/1/2 tsp salt

40g/1 1/2oz butter

2.5ml/1/2 tsp easy bake yeast

75g/3oz sultanas

Method

Pour the water, syrup and malt extract into the bread machine. If the instructions for your machine specify that the yeast is to be placed in the pan first, reverse the order in which you add the liquid and dry ingredients.

Sprinkle over the flour, ensuring that it covers the liquid. Add the milk powder. Add the salt and butter in separate corners of the bread pan. Make a shallow indent in the centre of the flour and add the yeast.

Set the bread machine to basic/normal setting (if available), medium crust. Press start. Add the sultanas when the machine beeps or after the first kneading.

Remove at the end of the baking cycle and turn out onto a wire rack.

If you like a sticky glaze, immediately after baking dissolve 15ml/1 Tbsp caster sugar in 15ml/1Tbsp of milk and brush all over the loaf.
