Homemade bread is always a challenge for me and I enjoy doing it in various forms and variations. The feeling when I take it out of the oven and when a wave of warmth and a nice smell hits me in my face is irreplaceable. In the past, I thought that making bread at home is one of the toughest things to do in the kitchen. I was wrong. It's the most satisfying thing, not the hardest.

  • 450 flour
  • 320 ml of warm water
  • 1 sachet dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil (plus 1 for coating)
  1. Knead the dough from all the ingredients, first mix the dry ingredients, then add the liquid ingredients and put the dough in a deeper bowl coated with oil and coat the dough with a little oil on top. Leave for 1 hour covered with a nylon foil.
  2. Then,  transfer to a paper-lined mold, shape it with your hands, but be careful not to press too much, and leave to stand for another half hour. Sprinkle flour on top and draw shapes from above before baking. Bake for about half an hour at 190 C degrees, then another 10 minutes at 150 C degrees. If it burns quickly, cover it with foil on top when baking.
  3. After baking, cover with a cloth and cut after 20 minutes.
