Ingredients

For the dough

  • 500g Strong white bread flour (we use Allinson)
  • 1 Easy bake yeast sachet (7g) (we use Allinson)
  • 1½tsp Unrefined golden caster sugar (we use Billington's)
  • 1½tsp Salt
  • 1tbsp Butter softened
  • 300ml Warm water

For the topping

  •  3½g Easy bake yeast (we use Allinson)
  • ½tbsp Unrefined golden caster sugar (we use Billington's)
  • ½tbsp Vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • 75g Ground rice
  • 6tbsp Warm water

Method

Step 1 MIX

Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Using your fingertips rub in the butter until only fine ‘crumbs’ are left. Mix in the water with a cutlery knife.

Step 2 KNEAD

Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer).

Step 3 RISE

Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.

Step 4 SHAPE

Knock back the dough by gently kneading just 5 times to get the air out. Shape into a smooth oval and sit on a floured baking sheet.

Step 5 PROVE

Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6). Whisk all of the topping ingredients together until smooth.

Step 6 BAKE

Spread the paste all over the top and sides of your loaf – use a palette knife or your hands. Bake for 35 minutes, until it’s golden brown and crackled and when you tap the base it sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack.
