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 😉
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
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.
