Prepared in three minutes using a food processor it is fluffy moist and so tasty. Incorporating seeds into home-made bread add so much flavour and texture. Dont underestimate the value of adding your favourite seeds in the bread.
There is a general misconception that making bread is daunting. Investing in a food processor is worthwhile and it doesn’t have to be the expensive kind. It cuts knead time to 5 mins as opposed to a tiresome 30 mins.
First tip: don’t rush to bake the loaf. It needs to rise slowly for the full one hour for the fluffiest of loaves. Another tip, preheat the oven to 60 degrees Celsius turn it off, and place the bread to prove in the pre warmed oven for the hour. The temperature is more likely to stay constant in the pre-warmed oven.
