Mise en place

  • If using fresh yeast, activate in the water.


  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients and knead thoroughly.
  2. Place in a bowl, covered with some oiled clingfilm and put in a warm place until risen to double its size.
  3. On a floured board, knock back, knead, return to the bowl and allow to rise again to double its size.
  4. Knock back and place in a suitable receptacle, eg a shallow, greased 25cm cake tin - I used a rectangular Falcon enamel pie dish.
  5. Cover again in clingfilm and let it rise until twice the height.
  6. Preheat your oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), and 10 minutes before you want to bake it, push your fingers into the dough to make some dimples.
  7. Sprinkle the dough with the onions, salt, black pepper and olive oil and leave to prove for 10 minutes.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and leave to cool on a wire rack.


Add herbs, spices etc of your choice.

Chef's notes

In theory you should use lukewarm water, but I made this with sparkling mineral water straight from the fridge. It takes a lot longer to prove, but a longer fermentation makes a better bread.
