Last week I asked my lovely followers on social media what recipes they would like to see on my website. I’ve got some great suggestions from samosas to tiramisu. A loyal follower, Jason, asked me to do some more bread and pastry recipes so today I baked this basic white loaf.

This loaf can be sliced thinly without falling apart, making it perfect for sandwiches, toasting or dipping in soup! I haven’t tried it yet but I’thinking you could use this recipe to make rolls as well. Look out for more bread recipes coming soon.
