Lazy Ladies Loaf
  1. Mix flour, yeast and salt together in a large bowl
  2. Pour in the water to make a sticky dough. Mix together with a spatula until well combined
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge overnight.
  4. Next day take out of fridge and rest at room temp for about 1.5 to 2 hours depending on weather (it must be just at room temp before you bake).
  5. Line a flat oven tray with baking paper and sprinkle generously with flour. Remove the dough from the bowl using a spatula, scape out onto tray. It will be VERY sticky.
  6. Shape dough with floured hands into a ciabatta shape. Flip dough over so that the wrinkled floured side is on top.
  7. Place the tray in a cold oven and set at 220 degrees Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until it has a light golden colour and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  8. Cool on wire racks & serve whilst still warm with lashings of Devondale Dairy Soft Butter and jam.

Fantastic recipe

This recipe is the best. I like to make the dough and place in the fridge on a Saturday night. Fresh and warm bread for Sunday brunch is the best. Such an easy and affordable recipe.
