Bread the simple way
I use a mix of brown flours, slightly different each time, just to vary.
put flour in bowl, add a little salt, 2 teaspoons sugar and mix
in a jug, add 1 teaspoon sugar, approx 2ox butter, (add a dash of olive oil if you like) and a little boiling water to melt sugar/butter, add cold water, then add your yeast,
when ready (frothy) add to bowl, mix and then kneed in the bowl for 10 mins, shape and place in your tin/dish/tray and leave to rise, when ready, cook approx 30 mins
prep time 15/20 mins, depends on yeast
Sorry no temp guide, we have a wood cooking range, also no mesurements of flour as I usually guestamate

Captain Carrots Pizza base
home made pizza is fun too, the dough can be made in advance and frozen.
For 8 small pizas...
250g strong white flour
250g plain flour
5g dried yeast
325ml warm water
a little olive oil
Mix all together, turn out and knead until smooth (10 minutes). Shape the dough into a ball and put in a clean bowl inside a plastic bag, somewher warm until doubled in size.
you want the base to be about 5mm thick...then add toppings.
the oven should be as hot as you can get it, and the pizzas take about 10 minutes.
