Pat a cake, pat a cake…
Oliver and my husband’s Godfather Andy baked bread yesterday and I wanted to share this simple recipe and very cute pics with you. Scroll down to view a video blog too!

750g (1 1/2 lbs) strong white bread flour
1 sachet fast action dried yeast
450ml (3/4) warm water
10g (2 teaspoons) salt
Mix the dry yeast with the flour until its uniform within the mixture. Add a bit of water at a time and stir. Eventually when it’s hard, knead the mixture with your hands. You know you have enough water when it feels slightly sticky. Knead for 20 minutes. Let it rest and rise to twice its size. Repeat the process and let it rise again.
Preheat the oven to 220-250 and bake for 30 minutes. Easy.
