Our in house chefs bake bread weekly for the children to enjoy with their homemade nutritious soup and we thought we would share our recipe.

  • 1lb 2oz  Strong bread flour
  • 1tsp       Salt
  • 2tsp      Yeast
  • 1oz        Unsalted butter
  • 75ml      Milk
  • 225ml    Warm water

Oven temperature 180C

Place the ingredients into the mixer with a dough hook and mix together for 5 minutes. Turn out into greased bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place for approximately 1 hour 30 minutes or until the bread has trebled in size. Remove from the bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface. Knock back, cut into 2 pieces and roll into shape. Place on a tray with parchment paper, mark the bread with a knife and sprinkle flour lightly on top. Leave to rise for approximately 1 hour then place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a baking rack until cooled or warm.
