White Cob

A simple and yummy loaf to impress.


500g White Bread Flour

25g Softened Butter

10g Salt

10g Fast Action Yeast

300ml Water (more or less)

A Drizzle of Olive Oil


- In a bowl, add the flour and the yeast and salt.

- Using your fingers rub the butter into the flour to resemble a crumbly mixture.

- Slowly pour in the water to bring the mixture together. It shouldnt be a wet mixture but it should be able to pick up all of the flour in the bowl.

- Oil a work surface and add the dough. Then knead for 10 minutes until the dough becomes smooth.

- Add the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and leave to prove in a warm area covered with a tea towel. Leave for an hour or two (it should double in size)

- Flour the work surface and carefully add the dough. Fold the dough under to create a round cob shape. Add to a bread basket to prove again for an hour. You can also add it to a floured baking tray if you don't have a breadbasket.

- Preheat the oven to 240c and add a tray to the bottom of the oven. Once ready to add the bread pour some hot water into the tray, this will create steam for a lovely crust. Then add the bread on the tray to the oven to bake. (you can be fancy before you add the bread by using a sharp knife to cut the top of the bread)

- Bake for 30-35 minutes.

- Leave to cool and ENJOY with lashings of salted delicious butter.
