You don’t need a bread maker to make a simple loaf your family will love. For just 30p, this homemade loaf goes well with soups or stews, and takes sonly 25 minutes to cook in the oven.
Make up of only kitchen staples, this really is a family recipe that you can pull out if a few extra mouths pop round for dinner. If doesn’t need much kneeding and keeps its shape really well in the oven, so there’s no need for a bread tin.

I also tried resting it overnight, as the original recipe suggested. I made it after dinner and dumped it covered in the fridge. I then took it out first thing and gave it a little knead and a further rest before cooking. It made the loaf triple in size and gave it a really rich flavour, so i’d recommend that if you have the time.
It’s so easy to make, that for a while, i ditched buying bread to freeze and made this every three days, and even went so far as toasting it under the grill on day 3 when it started to harden.
This is a firm favourite and can last up to two days in a air tight container. The kids love theirs with tomato soup while i love dunking mine in a homemade sweet potato and carrot soup.
