I suggested in another thread that those good at making bread might post their recipies, because I just haven't got a good loaf without using a bread maker.

didnt you watch and help your mother as a child. Stick to the bread maker its so much easier. mixing dough putting it in front of the fire to rise then knocking it back then rising again a long job.

NO my Mum's strengths did not include cooking. She worked four jobs while I did all the cleaning and cooking the whole family every day.

Hello G&D
I love baking but am too lazy for old fashioned, knead, wait, knead,wait business................I did try a bread baking machine a couple of years ago but found it too much effort for too little result. A couple of months ago I tried a recipe that sounded too good to be true. The result was unbelievable........The method used is also totally unbelievable. Knocks everything we have been taught about breadmaking on its head. Here is the BASIC recipe and method, you can vary recipe by using different mixes of flour. Replacing one cup of normal white flour by one cup of cornmeal, or one cup of rye flour etc.
EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:
Measuring cups (USA Size) - 1 CUP = 250 MIL.
Big (high sided)plastic container with lid
Plain baking sheet
1 14" marble tile (turned to non shiny side)
1 oven tin
Non stick baking parchment

INGREDIENTS:
6 AND A HALF cups of Normal plain flour
3 cups of luke warm water
1 and a half tablespoon of dried instant yeast
1 and a half tablespoon of salt

METHOD:
Put all the above into plastic container. Mix together with hands until is a sticky mass and no dry bits left. NO KNEADING. Wet a teatowel and squeeze out excess water and cover the container. Leave in a warmish place until doubled. You can now put lid on and put away in fridge until you feel like baking. Will last 7 days.

If you want to bake straight away, sprinkle top of dough in container with some flour, remove half of it, turn onto floured board and shape into a round ball shape. No kneading! Line your baking sheet with parchment. Sprinkle parchment with coarse semolina or flour, place dough on this. Sprinkle top of dough ball with more flour. Put to one side to rise. You will know when it is ready for baking. it will have doubled in size. In the meantime, switch on oven to about 210o Put marble tile (upside down) in oven. Put empty oven tin into oven (at the bottom). When ready to put bread in oven slash the top -criss cross is good. Open oven door and pour 1 cup of hot water into
empty tin. Then slide bread together with the paper onto hot marble tile. Cook for about 25 -35 minutes till golden all over.

The extra left over dough in fridge can be used another day for more bread or for stuff like pizza.

Have a go. Really does work!

Our method ..

1 Kg Soke un
1 tsbl Honey
Just over 1 pint warm water
Level tsp salt
1 cube fresh yeast

Method

Mix yeast honey & warm water, allow to stand till it goes frothy.
Sieve flour & salt in a large bowl, when yeast mix is frothy add to flour & combine to form a dough.
Tip dough onto floured surface knead for 5 mins until it becomes smooth & elastic.
Place back in clean bowl score the top deeply, cover with clean tea cloth & leave to prove in a warm place till doubled in size.
When doubled remove from bowl & knead for 1-2 mins then make into desired shape. Place on greased baking sheet or loaf tin & leave to prove again.
It will double in size .
Pre-heat oven to 180 c
Place bread on middle shelf.
Rolls will take 10-15 mins. Loaves will take about 20-25 mins.
Bread is done when bottom sounds hollow & top is light brown.

Eat when hot with loads of Butter & Cilek recil

Good recipe. Do you leave the water in for all the cooking time or just as I was told by my old ma for the last few mins . She said if you put the water in from the start it makes the bread very hard but just the last few mins makes it crispy.

Hello
I leave the water for whole cooking time. This produces a nice french style crust to the bread. I have tried other methods like spraying inside of oven with water prior to baking bread, also have tried spraying the bread as soon as it goes into oven. Best results I found were with leaving water in tin.

I am looking for a wholemeal bread recipe WITHOUT yeast. I made some years ago but have lost the recipe.
Does anyone have one please?

This one works
Heat oven to 200C

1 lb Soke un
1 Sachet baking powder(Toz karbonet)
1tsp salt
3/4 pint mixed milk & water & 1tbsp lemon juice


Mix all together to form dough . Turn out onto floured board & need for 2 mins. Shape in to round score a cross on the top place on baking sheet & bake at 200 C for about 30mins until botom sounds hollow when tapped. You can glaze the top with butter whilst hot if wanted.

Debbie, if you fancy something a bit different in the bread line I can thoroughly recommend these from Binnur's Turkish Cookbook. I regularly make these on a Sunday morning while hubby has a lie in. They don't take too long and only need one rise. My mother-in-law like them too!

GnD,

I'm not sure if this is of any use, but I use the dough setting on my bread machine and it does all the work. All that's left for me is to shape the dough and allow for one final rise. Just about any bread recipe I've tried works out very well using this method.

I wasn't sure from your original post, but it sounded like you didn't want to use a bread machine. Give this a try before throwing in the towel.
