I have certain revision rules. If I must procrastinate, the only legal reasons are running, cleaning, or baking. Today was baking. After reading this Guardian article about all the not-very-nice things there is being put in our food (human hair anyone?) I decided to try out bread. I’ve never been much of a bread maker, and therefore went into the project with slight reservations about the result. But it ended very happily, and I therefore thought I would share it with you.
50g yeast (I used dried, 1 level table spoon equals 15 grams)
8 table spoons of water
3 dl. milk
2 tablespoons of sugar
0.70g of salt
0.5 dl. olive oil
800 gram flour (I used a mix of white and wholemeal, but it can be done however healthy you wish to be. Would be great to add some seeds too)
-and one egg for glazing.
Mix the yeast with semi-warm water from the tap. Then put the rest of the ingredients in, but only about half the flour. Put the rest in gradually, until the dough is elastic but not sticky.
Make them buns into the shape and size that you wish (I made 12 round ones), let them rise for 10-20 minutes, and bake for 10-15 minutes at 220 degrees. And voila! Bread rolls with no human hair to be seen anywhere.
