Herby ‘tear n share’ bread

Bread is my new favourite thing to make.

It’s a lot easier than it seems.   My kids love it, some times it feels hard keeping 4 kids fed!  It’s never a bad thing to have some fresh bread ready when they get home from school.

Method

  • Put all ingredients in a bowl and pour in the water, combine with a fork until it forms a dough.
  • The dough is meant to be a little sticky/wet.  knead the dough on a surface for at least 10 minutes.   If it’s too sticky add a tiny amount of flour to surface.  (The more flour you add the heavier your bread will be so add it sparingly.)
  • Put the dough into a greased bowl with olive oil and cover.  leave it to proof for about an hour or until its double the size.
  • Take it out and knead it again for about 5 minutes.
  • This recipe makes 2 loaves or you can make the rolls I made or you can make even smaller rolls as a tear n share loaf.
  • Cut the dough in half and then each half into 8 pieces. Grease 2 tins and put 8 of the dough rolls in each tin with a small gap between them.
  • Cover and leave to proof for another 30 minutes. Then sprinkle flour on the top.
  • Bake at 180c for 30minutes or until golden brown.  When the breads cooked it should make a hollow sound when tapped on the bottom!
