    Serves: 8 

    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 600g strong plain flour
    • 3 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 (7g) sachet of easy cook yeast
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil
    • tepid water to mix, depends on how much flour will absorb
    • 2 tablespoons rice flour

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Place following ingredients into stand mixer with the dough hook attachment in this order: salt, flour, sugar, yeast. Start mixing, then add water and sesame oil gradually until it forms a soft 'lump'. Continue mixing for another minute or two. Leave in mixer to rise, covered with cling film or a tea towel.
    2. When it has doubled, whirl it around in mixer for another minute to knock it back down. Optional: let it rise again or not. Shape it into a loaf with floured hands, it should feel lovely and pliable, not stiff and lumpy.
    3. Make rice flour into a paste with a bit of warm water and brush or spread it over the loaf, then cover with oiled cling film. When doubled in size, roughly, bake in a hot oven for this one because you want the rice flour to brown well. The oven should be preheated to 220 C / Gas 7.
    4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Bread making is not an exact science, a 'feel' for how the dough should look and feel is the most important thing.
