Serving suggestions

Serve with cheese and pickles.


You can use dried yeast if preferred, but reduce the quantity by half of that given for fresh yeast. The mixing, kneading and rising can be done with the aid of a breadmaker or food processor.

Chef's notes

My oven is rather tempermental so check your bread towards the end of the cooking time.
