I have kept this recipe under my sleeve for quite a long time, and since my easy crusty bread recipe has been so popular, I thought I would post the healthier combination of ingredients the lovely Silvina and Sonia came up with after I gave them the original recipe. These two do not need to lose weight but spend their lives on a diet… silly ladies!
What better timing than British Sandwich Week to post this recipe and a couple of ‘tartine’ ideas (open sandwiches)?
If you are not into having too much white flour, then this easy, no kneading, no fuss, no bread machine required recipe should be perfect for you!
Crevette (5 years 9 months) and Beanie (3 years 7 months) are always keen to get involved with the measuring of ingredients and they often end up mixing the dough together. It is such a quick one to put together they certainly do not have time to get bored in the process and they can do the whole thing by themselves. Why not get your kids cooking for you?
This bread is more dense than the white loaf, the dough is not as sticky and does not raise quite as much which is why I would not bake it in my cast iron casserole dish but no panic; it works every time!
Until a couple of days ago, I had only baked it in a loaf tin, but I thought I would try it in my new Pyrex ‘4 in 1 plus’ dish and it came out looking great!
Here are our favourites:
Hummus, Parma ham, avocado, salt, pepper
