Lukewarm water

Method :
  • Combine the yeast and 50ml cup of the water, stir and leave for 15 minutes to dissolve.
  • Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a central well and pour in the yeast mixture and the remaining water. With a wooden spoon, stir to a rough dough.
  • Transfer to a floured surface, knead until smooth. Return to the bowl, cover with a plastic bag, and leave until doubled in size.
  • Meanwhile, combine the butter, parsley, spring onions and garlic in a large frying pan. Cook over a low heat, stirring, until softened. Season and set aside.

  • Cover, leave in a warm place until the dough rises above the tin rims.
  • Preheat the oven to 190oC/375oF/Gas 5. Brush the loaves with milk and bake until the bases sound hollow when tapped, about 55 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
