Ok, my latest attempt went as follows;
- 500g Bread Flour
- 2 tsp instant yeist
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 350ml boiling water
-Mixed flour, sugar, salt and yeist together.
-Added water bit by bit, mixed together by hand.
-Kneeded for 15 minutes, became really elasticlly.
-Placed in bowl with damp towel over it and let rise for 1 hour.
-Placed in an oiled round tin, floured top and cooked in oven for 45 minutes at Mark 8 (think that is 200 C).
-Removed and let cool, enjoyed with butter or on its own.
it's my best so far. It wasn't doughy or anything.
