Bread Dough Recipe

Bread Dough Recipe

This recipe is purposely simple to lend itself to both savoury or sweet bread creations. 

Once the dough has proved you choose how to use it. From buns & scrolls to plaits & traditional loaves. For a savoury option we recommend adding pesto & cheese for sweet try butter, cinnamon & sugar or a stewed apple. Enjoy!
