At last! It appears to be BBQ weather, and whilst I’m stuck for Father’s Day ideas I figured a BBQ might be just the thing to treat your Dad.
Tiger bread is delicious, there’s no doubt about it. Lovely soft white bread with a crispy crunchy crust.
But did you know that it’s really easy to make it at home too?
1 x Quantity of Basic White Bread Dough (recipe here)
35ml warm water
1/2 tsp dried fast action yeast
1/2 tsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp vegetable or sunflower oil
15g rice flour (rice flour also makes really great crunchy shortbread if you were wondering what else you could use it for!)
Make the bread dough as per the instructions here and allow to rise in a bowl until doubled in size.
Taking it back to basics, baking is a simple as loaf of bread. But it’s only simple if you have a recipe that works. You know I’m not keen on the whole bread making thingy and that’s down to multiple failures – dough that finally springs into action after being in the bin for a day and a half!
Homemade Teacakes – none of this shout ‘whip’ if you find a piece of fruit, lovely toasted slathering with butter is of course essential!
