Love this recipe and have now done it several times. I got my best ever result today….I forgot to allow time for the dough to rise but kept going and got my lightest/fluffiest result? I left out the salt and used 1 tsp of garlic salt, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 heaped tsp of turmeric and a shake of chopped chives . Perfect accompaniment for soup !!

Super yummy and so easy to make, takes less than five minutes to mix ingredients. The kids are always begging me to whip a loaf up

Success on the second attempt!! Re-reading the recipe directions and ingredients list was a good idea.A nice light bread was the result. Quite chuffed with it.

Is this being done in a 6.5 l sc or bigger?
Would instant yeast work ok or should I use yeast that needs time to bloom? (I have both but not sure if one of those is ‘granulated yeast’ per recipe.

Many thanks for your help.

When I see the answers I will try this and add a rating here

Love the idea of not having to feed the yeast sugar to activate it and for it to grow ( have it go into frothy bubbles)
