If you're like me and often have little time to wait on the proving time required for fresh homemade bread, then this is the recipe for you! This recipe takes approximately 50 minutes max to prep and bake.
Preheat the oven to the highest temp (approximately 230 C) and place a large casserole dish to preheat. Whilst this heats place the yeast, sugar and water into a mixing bowl and whisk lightly until well combined.
Once bubbles have appeared in the yeast mix, add your flour, salt and balsamic and mix with an electric mixer using the dough hook for about 5 minutes. If you don't have a dough hook, just mix the bread with a knife for about 10 minutes until well combined and elastic.
Place the dough in a well greased microwaveable dish, and cover with oil to stop sticking.
Cover the dough with a wet tea towel and again with a dry towel and place in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Leave to rest for 5 minutes and then microwave for a further 25 seconds and leave to rest for another 15 minutes.
Place the dough in the centre of the preheated casserole dish in the oven and cover with a lid. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
