Friday Evening bread!!
Make some bread! Sounds easy doesnâ€™t it? Well if you read lots of cookery books it isnâ€™t! But if you remember that people have been making bread of some sort or another for hundreds of years without the aid of thermometers or humidifiers or what ever else is the Latest gadget it is! With three main ingredients and a little time we can all make bread.
Remember making bread is a very relaxing hobby.
Get home on Friday evening and spend 15 minuets making a dough.
2 pound of flour,
2 packets of easy blend yeast
Enough cold water to make a soft moist dough (about a pint)
a teaspoon of salt
Open the wine and pour a glass. Take a sip and find a big bowl. Add the flour and yeast and mix, add the salt and ( remember at this stage to take a sip of wine as your hands are going to be busy for a while)
begin to add the water and mix until the dough begins to form. Stop adding water at this stage and work the dough with your hands until it begins to become smooth Tip it on to the work top if you like and push it with the palm of your hand and pull it back with your fingers like you may have seen on the tv its called kneeding which ever way you do it.
Then put it back into the bowl and cover it with cling film of a plastic bag and put it into the fridge.
Finnish the wine and go to bed.
In the morning take the dough out of the fridge and half it. Put half back in the fridge and let the other half come back to room temperature whilst percolating the coffee. Mold the dough into balls and place on a baking tray. cover it with a cloth and let it rise until it looks like rolls. Heat the oven to your normal cooking temperature and put the tray in.
when they are brown they are done! Breakfast rolls what could be simpler?
