Baking bread in a cast iron pot - Wholemeal Loaf
If you do not have a bread machine just follow any wholemeal loaf recipe for making one manually (or with the aid of a food mixer) as far as completion of the first rise then follow the method below.
Using my bread machine the ingredients were as follows:
|Dough after first rise|
|Knock back and gently knead|
|Shape dough into a ball|
Using a sharp knife cut a slit across the top,, cutting about 1 inch deep.
| dough in casserole dish lined with baking paper|
