  • recipe for making bread please

    I have been making my own bread and at the moment I use the small packets which you add water to. I am looking to make bread from scratch and was hoping someone could give me a recipe to try out?
    I was looking on bbc good food website, but there is alot of choice on there.
    Just a normal everyday bread for sandwiches and toast, I like brown and granary bread. I have a small loaf tin to bake it in, not sure of the exact size though :s

    This one is most similar to the one I make at work, I don't put that much water in, I would put in 300ml to start and if it needs the rest add it slowly

    I would also try an onion and garlic flatbread
    i make it all the times it's absoluetly lush!!
    Take your mix after 1 prove, roll it out as best you can, stick in a tray, oiled; can make it quite shallow tray, put your fingers in it and kind of knead it out to fit the tray properly, sprinklle and roughly knead in olive oil to the bread add onions and garlic bits on top, prove a little then bake, will try and find a link that explains it more intelligently than me

        I suggest one recipe for making a whole wheat bread. For making this you required:
        3 cups warm water (45 degrees C)
        2 packages active dry yeast
        1/3 cup honey
        5 cups bread flour
        3 tablespoons butter, melted
        1/3 cup honey
        1 tablespoon salt
        3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
        2 tablespoons butter, melted
        HOW TO MAKE:
        In a large bowl, mix warm water, yeast and honey 1 / 3 cup. Add 5 cups flour and mix well. Let stand for 30 minutes, or until big and bubbly. Mix 3 tablespoons of honey cup melted butter 1 / 3 and salt. Stir in 2 cups whole wheat flour. Flour a flat surface and knead with whole wheat flour until not real sticky - just pulling away from the disk, but still sticky to the touch. It may take an additional 2-4 cups whole wheat flour. Place in greased bowl, turning once to coat surface of dough. Cover with a cloth. Let rise in warm place until doubled. Deflate and divide it into three bread. Put up greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans and let the dough until it has overcome the pans by one inch. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, not overcook. Brush top of loaves with Easy 2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine in fact to prevent the crust from getting hard. Cool completely.

          I use Delia Smith's recipe, from my complete cookery course book. Always works.

            225g Strong plain white flour or plain wholemeal flour
            1 level teaspoon salt
            1 level teaspoon sugar
            15g soft tub margarine
            6g easy blend dried yeast or fast action easy blend dried yeast
            150ml warm water

            1. Put the flour in the mixing bowl and add the sugar and the salt.
            2. Add the margarine and rub into the flour using your finger tips.
            3. Add the dried yeast and stir into the flour mix
            4. Add all the water at once to the flour mix and stir together.
            5. Put the dough onto a floured surface.
            6. Knead the dough to make it smooth and stretchy. Do this for about 5 minutes until the dough feels smooth.
            7. Cover the shape with the oiled cling film to stop it drying out and then put the tray in a warm place so that the yeast can work and make the dough rise.
            8. Now set the oven to 230°C/450°F/Gas Mark 8
            9. Bake the loaf for 20-25 minutes. It should be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped underneath.
