Basic white bread

This recipe is very easy and totally do able by hand!

Who doesn’t love cheesy bread rolls with lunch?

I had played around with this a lot adding cheese on top, jalapeños through the mix, sun-dried tomatoes through the mix also. Th options are kinda endless really!

So what your going to need is:

3 tsp active yeast

2 Tbsp castor sugar

2/3 cup – 160ml warm water

whisk these 3 ingredients together and set aside for 10 mins and let them dance together until they become frothy.

Next your going to place the following in a mixer bowl of your stand mixer or a regular mixing bowl and knead by hand.

2 1/2 cup white bread flour

1 tsp salt

30 g melted butter

1/2 cup milk

place the flour and salt in your bowl of choice still in the butter and the milk yeast mix mix to a stiff dough knead for about 10 mins.

These only have 1 prove so shape into buns or place into your loaf tin and leave to prove for up to 1 hr.

Then bake in a pre heated oven to 200’c for 12-15mins, depending  on your oven.



This is the loaf I made with freshly chopped jalapeños through it and baked with cheese on top! Delicious!



any questions please get in touch

Happy bread baking.

love always

  1. Hi Jackie About to make this. What if you don’t have bread flour. I have plain and hi-grade flour. Any suggestions?

    Hope you are okay and keeping well.
