Serves 1 loaf :
1 sachet easy blend yeast (7g)
240 ml cold water
400 g bread flour
5 g salt
1Put all of the ingredients into the metal bowl. Start the BREAD/BRIOCHE programme. If the ingredients are not well combined, restart the programme by pressing Auto. Place the dough in a floured bowl, cover with a damp cloth and set aside in a warm place to rise for 2 hours.
2Then, place the dough on a floured work surface. Work with the palm of the hand pushing the dough outwards, then fold the four corners into the centre; turn the dough over and place, seam-side down, on a lined* baking tray. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside to rise again for 1 hour.
3Preheat the oven to 220°C (gas mark 7/8) just before the dough finishes rising; fill a roasting tin with water and place on the base of the oven. Dust the ball of dough with flour and using the wet blade of a very sharp knife, make a deep crisscross pattern on the top. Bake for 30 minutes. To check if the bread is cooked turn the loaf over and tap the bottom—it should sound hollow. Cool on a rack.
