Makes 1 bread loaf

Ingredients:

Fresh Ingredients:
1 cup lukewarm filtered water

Basics:
1 tbsp. olive oil plus extra to grease
3 cups plain unbleached flour (not self raising!)
1 tbsp. dry yeast
¼ tsp. sugar of choice

Spices:
1 tsp. Himalayan salt
1 tbsp. Italian herbs
(Both optional)

Bread mold 24cmx 12cmx 7cm (can be slightly different)

How to do:

·         Mix together flour, yeast, sugar, salt and herbs in a big glass bowl
·         Add olive oil and water and mix properly by hand till it forms a big lump; take it out and kneed it little bit till it forms a ball shape. If its too sticky in the beginning you may dust some flour on the surface first
·         Place the ball back into to the bowl and cover the bowl with cling film
·         Place the bowl in a warm place and let it rise till double in size; this will take at least 30 min (view tip)
·         After the first rise is done, grease your bread mold with olive oil and dust the surface of your working space with some flour. Take out the dough and give it a good kneed, place it in the bread mold, add a little bit of olive oil and even the dough in the mold, cover with your previous foil and let rise in a warm place till its nearly the size you desire, it will get a bit bigger during the baking process
·         After the second rise, remove the foil and place in your hot oven at 200°C for about 20-30 min at upper and lower heat
·         The timing might vary depending on the oven, so best is to watch the bread for the first few times to get the perfect timing for your oven
·         You can also place the bread in the cold oven and make already use of the heating up time; the yeast will eventually stop working once the bread reaches 50°C, when using this method your baking timings might get shorter
·         Your bread should have a nice golden brown color on top and sound hollow when “knocking” at the backside
·         After you took the bread out of the oven, remove it from the bread mold as soon as you can handle it, because if the bread stays longer in the mold it will get soft on the outside and will not be so crunchy anymore; use oven gloves or a tea towel



Tip:

Give the first rise 4-8 hours to break down the gluten to become better digestible. Prepare the dough in the morning before work or in the evening before going to bed, so it gets a great rest and then continue with the second rise



Step by step:




 Mix all the dry ingredients and the then add olive oil and water 





 Mix it, kneed it and form a bowl, if your dough is too soft, reduce the water a little bit at the next time




Cover it and let it rise






Now its time to kneed it again and place in the oil greased bread mold





Use a bit of olive oil in order to form the dough into the molds shape, cover it and let it rise



You can sprinkle some extra herbs on top and now its time to bake



The bread will seem very hard on top but will soften up after a while. Take the bread out of the mold, flip it and knock on the backside, you should hear a hollow sound. It can be still baked trough, even without the sound, but then its usually already softer.




Enjoy your freshly baked bread, wrap it in some cling film to keep it fresh!
