Pot bread

Ingredients 5
Servings 0


  • 720
    cake flour
  • 7
  • 10
    instant dried yeast
  • 30
  • lukewarm water


Sift the cake flour, salt and instant yeast together in a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and mix. Add about 500-625 ml lukewarm water to the dry ingredients to form a fairly slack dough. Knead until the dough just clings to your hands. Spoon the dough into a clean plastic shopping bag and loosely tie the handles together. (Ensure that the bag has no holes.) Place the bag inside another bag, tie the handles loosely and place the parcel in a large black pot. Half fill the pot with lukewarm water. Cover and bring the water to the boil before reducing the heat to its lowest setting. (Replenish the water in the pot if necessary.) Check to see if the bead is done with a testing skewer. If it comes out clean, the bread is done. Serve with butter and jam. Makes an large 'loaf'.
