Have you ever wanted to bake some nice bread at home? Here for you an Italian recipe offered by Mamma Maria who, among all her delicious dishes, is a master in the preparation of the homemade bread. We hope you will enjoy it!
Time: 4h (rinse included)
- 1 kg of flour
- 1 cube of yeast (25 gr)
- Lukewarm water
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- Put the flour into a large bowl and mix with salt, slowly add lukewarm water, then the yeast and keep mixing well until the dough is soft and smooth.
- Transfer the dough onto a working surface and continue kneading to form a loaf. (You can divide the dough to form more loaves of the size you want). Put in a baking tray and leave to rise in a warm place, covered with a cloth.
- After about an hour, put it back on the working surface, knead again and finally reform the loaf. With a knife, make a cut on the surface. Place the loaf back on the baking tray and leave it to rise for about another 2 hours.
- Finally place it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 50-60 minutes.
