About nutrition facts



  1. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Make a well in the centre. Add the water, stir with a wooden spoon and then form into a ball with your hands. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a clean cloth. Let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes. Remove from the bowl and knead for about 30 seconds.
  3. Shape the dough into a roll and place into a 20 x 10-cm (8 x 4-inch) buttered loaf pan. Cover with a cloth and let rise again in a warm place for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Bake in the lowest position of the oven for about 25 minutes.


In a recipe, when told to let the dough rise in a warm place, the ideal place is a turned off oven. The light bulb will give the desired heat and a bowl of hot water will bring the desired moisture. Sometimes, when the oven is busy, I use the microwave oven. I place a bowl of hot water and leave the door ajar to allow the bulb to remain lit.

Freezes well.
