This is something your mother or even grandmother would do all the time, but today it's a bit of a rarity. Hopefully, now we all have a little more time on our hands, you can rediscover the joy of baking. It's so easy and so much fun.

Ingredients
 

  • 600 g strong white flour
  • 1 tsp salt, level
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 7 g sachet dried yeast
  • 300 mls warm water, roughly

Instructions
 

  • Place the flour, salt and oil into a mixer till it starts to come together.
  • Add the yeast and enough warm water to form a soft dough. Mix well until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl, and the gluten is now forming a stretchy dough.
  • Tip onto a floured surface and knead well for 5 minutes.
  • Return the dough to the bowl and cover with film and leave to double in size.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 220C Gas 7.
  • Once doubled in size, remove the film and tip onto the floured surface again.
  • Gently knead, but not too roughly for a few seconds, to just bring together.
  • Form into a sausage shape roughly the length of a 2lb loaf tin, then fold the edges under.
  • Pop into the tin and press into the sides and bottom.
  • Recover with film and leave again to rise till just under double in size.
  • Dust the risen loaf in a little flour.
  • Make 3 diagonal slashes across the loaf and pop into the oven.
  • Bake until well risen and browned, probably 15-20 minutes.
  • Once cooked, remove from the tin. Leave to cool completely before trying to slice.
