The Essential Part of the Day – Your Bread


Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods. The reason why I like to bake bread is that it allows me to choose the ingredient that go

in it. Otherwise there are so many chemicals and preservatives in a store bought bread, you can’t imagine.

 In this post I will share with you a recipe, which I love to make. This recipe is very easy and the reward is outstanding!

This is Jamie Oliver’s Basic Bread Recipe

What you need:

1 kg of flour

625 ml warm water

21 gr of dry yeast

2 tbsp. of sugar

2 tbsp. of sea salt

Put flour in a big bowl and make a well in a center. Water should be warmer than body temperature, and you can easily use tap water. Pour half of the amount of water in a well, add yeast, sugar and salt. Carefully start mixing everything with a fork.


Gradually mix more flour from sides adding rest of water. Mix until dough is elastic and not sticking to your hands.


Dust a big bowl with flour and put your dough in it. Cover with plastic wrap, tea towel and put in a plastic bag.


 Put in a warm place for about 1 hour (or less), until dough will double in a size.  Open and knead a little, and cover again. Let rest for another30-50 minute.

After your dough is ready, knead again, give a shape you want, put on a baking sheet until your oven is ready.

I usually glaze my bread with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sea salt and sesame seeds, but it’s not really necessary. It is totally up to you.


Bake in a hot oven (380 F) for about 40 minutes. Take from the oven, put on a cooling rack, and let rest.


Bon Appetite!
