If you have never made bread before, this is a great way to start.
These are great as they are quick to make and great to eat. They are perfect when you don't have bread in the house, it is quicker to make these than go to the shop.
My family love it with hearty soups, they are also great with antipasti or as a snack. My kids are super excited when I make these.
Give these a go if you want to try baking bread that is simple and tasty.
450g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
1 x 7g sachet fast action dried yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
250-275ml warm water
Oil spray, for cling film
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons sea salt, extra
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
Dust two baking trays with flour
In a large bowl of an electric mixer add the flour, yeast and salt. Add enough water to make a soft, but not sticky dough. Using the dough hook attachment, knead on slow to medium speed for 5 minutes. If you do not have an electric mixer, knead by hand 10 minutes. I have found if the dough is too sticky just sprinkle a little more flour into the mix.
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Cut two large sheets of cling film. Spray one side of the cling film lightly with cooking spray. Place the oiled side on top of the breadsticks and cover them loosely with the cling film, but make sure it is airtight. Leave in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
