Bread :)

Yummy yummy bread.
F has been attending a Steiner playgroup in Sydney. Every week they make bread and it is delicious! So they gave me the recipe :)
We tweaked it a little and this is what we made:

1Kg of flour (you can mix and match any kind- we used wholemeal and plain)
500ml of water (@ body temperature)
1 Tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp honey
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp of oil (we used olive)
Chocolate flakes
Anything you want to add to the loaf.

1. Put 250ml of the water in a container and sprinkle the top with the yeast to make it bubble and foam (if it doesn't, it means the yeast isn't good and your bread won't rise). Leave for 10 minutes.
2. Add all dry ingredients less the oregano and chocolate flakes and mix in the mixer.
3. Add the water and yeast and knead with the kneading hook.
4. Slowly add the rest of the water until your dough forms.
5. We split the dough in two and mix the oregano onto one batch and the chocolate on another. You can add whatever you like such as cheese, sultanas and nuts, etc.
6. Leave in a greased bowl covered with a tea towel at a warm place for it to rise for an hour.
7. Remove from the bowl and knead for a few minutes again. Put back in the bowl and cover with the towel and let rise again for another 30-45 minutes.
8. Make whatever shapes you like and bake in a 180ÂșC oven for 25-45 minutes (depending on the size of your loaves). It will be ready when you tap the bottom and it sounds hollow.
