you will need
1Kg Bread Flour (strong white flour)
600ml Warm Water
1 Tsp Sunflower oil
a large mixing bowl
cups (for holding ingredients)
a black bin liner
a tea towel
Step 1: Mixing and kneading
once they are mixed together make it into a ball, lightly flour the worktop and your hands, get ready for some exercise.
Knead the dough for no less than 10 minutes, I set a timer on my iPhone, for those who do not know how to need what you do is stretch the dough using the heel of your hand pushing the dough out, then fold in half and give it a quarter turn and do again, quarter turn and knead, keep going for the full ten minutes.
here is a video I found to show you how to knead.
Step 2: The first rise
brush a bowl using a pastry brush with sunflower oil, place your dough in the middle and brush the dough with oil.
put the whole bowl with the dough in it inside a black bin liner, twist the bag so its sealed and put the end under the bowl.
Now leave it for 1 and a half hours, preferably in a warm place, it was warm in my kitchen so I didn't need to move it.
why are we doing this, we put it in the bag so it can sweat, during this time the yeast will produce co2 and the dough will double in size.
