Flours & Mixes
White Farmhouse Cob
: 1 ½ hours
: 40 mins
500 g Neill's Strong White Bread Flour
2 teaspoon salt
7 g sachet of dried fast action yeast
300 ml slightly warmed milk
30 g butter
Put the flour and the salt in a bowl and rub in the butter.
Stir in the yeast and the milk to get a soft dough.
Turn on to a lightly floured work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 10-15 minutes. Put in a clean bowl and cover with cling film. Stand in a warm place for 1 hour to rise.
Heat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7 and put a roasting tin in the bottom to heat up.
Turn the dough out onto the floured work surface again and mould into a round cob shape, slash the top with a knife.
Fill the roasting tin in the bottom of the oven with hot water: this will create steam and give the crust a light but crisp finish.
Bake the bread in the centre of the oven until golden and risen, about 30-40 minutes. The base of the loaf should sound hollow when you tap it. Turn on to a wire rack to cool.
