How to make Traditional Cottage Bread | Old Fashioned Rustic English Bread

  1. Add sugar to 1/2 cup warm water. Add yeast, stir and keep for 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients. Add water and knead dough. While kneading, add water if the dough feels hard or dry. Knead for about 10 minutes till dough become soft and elastic.
  3. Make a ball of the dough and transfer it to an oiled bowl. Turn the dough around so that it is well coated with oil. Keep for 1 hour or till it doubles in size.
  4. Punch the dough, knead for another 2 to 3 minutes. Cut the dough into two parts- one large one and one slightly smaller one.
  5. Roll out both the pieces slightly, place small one on top of the big one. Sprinkle some flour and push your finger in the center and push down to base to make a hole. With a sharp knife, cut down through dough ensuring equal cuts all around
  6. Transfer to an oiled baking tray. Cover with a kitchen cloth, leave to rise for 1 hour or till almost double in size. Sprinkle some flour on top.
  7. Baking in a preheated oven at 190 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or till golden brown.
  8. Tent with a foil if the top is browning too fast.
  9. Cool in the rack.

My Tip:

You may add flours of your choice, Add 1 cup powdered oats or 1 cup whole wheat flour to make the bread healthy. Knead well till the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
