Sundried Tomato Yeast Bread August 25, 2011

I tried this recipe on a whim. I fancied some yeast bread and had the yeast. There was a recipe on the back of the yeast box so I kind of followed that but I used plain cream flour instead of strong flour. It turns out like a soda bread with the plain flour. It also doesn’t last long, you would need to keep it in an airtight container. Give it a go!


750g tesco strong/super strong bread flour

2 teaspoons salt

25ml of olive oil

1 x 7g fast action bread yeast

450ml warm water (made from 1 part chilled, 1 part boiling)

50g chopped sundried tomatoes



1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, sundried tomatoes and yeast. Stir in the oil and water and mix into soft dough.

2. Turn onto a floured surface and knead well for 10 minutes by hand or 5 minutes in an electric mixer with a dough hook.

3. Shape the dough as required and place in a greased tin or tray. Cover with greased cling film and leave in a warm place until doubled in size.

4. Uncover and bake  in an oven, pre-heated to 230 degrees/ 450 degrees fahrenheit/ Gas mark 8 for around 30-35 minutes. Baked loaf should sound hollow when tapped underneath.

5. For a soft, moist crust, remove from the oven and wrap in a clean tea towel to cool.
