Servings

10

Ingredients

  • 500g/4 cups strong white flour, sieved
  • 1 tsp fast action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt (slightly under if using sea salt)
  • 1 tsp sugar (brown is nice)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 350ml/1½ cups warm water
  • 2oz loaf tin, lightly greased with olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, yeast, salt and sugar.
  2. Mix the oil and warm water in a jug.
  3. Stir the liquid into the flour with a wooden spoon to combine.
  4. When the dough starts to form, use your hands to bring it together.
  5. Flour your work surface and tip out the dough onto it.
  6. Knead for 5 mins until smooth and stretchy, adding more flour if necessary.
  7. Shape the dough into a round and lightly oil using your hands.
  8. Place back into a clean mixing bowl and cover with a damp tea towel. Put somewhere warm to rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  9. When the dough has risen, gently tip it back out onto your worktop, using a spatula to help ease it out of the bowl. It will deflate slightly.
  10. Flour it again and re-shape into an oval, before popping it in the loaf tin.
  11. Give it a shorter second rise, uncovered until it’s starting to brim over the top of the tin. This is usually about 30 mins.
  12. Meanwhile preheat your oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 4.
  13. Place the loaf in the oven for 30 mins.
  14. When you take it out, gently tip it out of the tin and check the bottom sounds hollow. This is to check it is cooked enough. If unsure, return to oven for another 5 mins.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
