There was a cookery program on TV a few months ago which inspired to make this easy loaf. I’ve never tried to cook one before but this loaf looked pretty ‘foolproof’, or was it?
Cookery programs are great but why, when I cook the same recipe, does it never look the same? Do you experience this problem? Maybe they “tart” up or perhaps cook several and just choose the best one? Either way, I am sure my loaf is flatter and smaller than the one presented on TV. Hey ho, it may not have risen very much but served warm with goats cheese, Mr. Piglet’s pickled onions and some courgette and tomato chutney accompanied by a nice glass or two of wine it tasted delicious! Just right for a sundowner.
8oz plain flour
8oz wholemeal flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp caster sugar
12 fl oz milk
Preheat oven 425F/220C and put a large casserole dish and its lid into the oven.
Once to temperature remove casserole dish and dust lightly with flour.
Mix dry ingredients together, add milk and quickly mix together into a soft dough.
Shape dough into a loaf about 1½ inches thick, put in casserole dish, cover with lid and return to oven.
Cook for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and after 5 minutes turn out on rack to cool slightly before serving.
Best eaten warm!
Stuck in a “culinary rut” one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to research and cook one new recipe each week: photograph the results, both successes and failures, and post to my blog.
Please don’t forget folks, if you have a recipe (especially low-calorie) you would like me to cook, and then share just drop me an email. Contact details in “about” page
