Fate Classic Loaf

For this recipe, I find it best to either divide the mixture equally into 2 x 1kg loaf tins (this will give small slices), or use an 18cm square cake tin that is about 9cms deep (this will hold the full recipe and give you large slices). The loaves are perfect for sandwiches and toast. Fate Classic Loaf freezes well.


INGREDIENTS

500g Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix sachet yeast (enclosed with the mix) 2tsp salt 120mls oil, or 50mls for the lower fat version 2-3 drops of browning 450mls warm water


Preheat the oven Gas 6, 200°C, 400°F. Grease the tin or tins with a little oil and lightly dust with Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix.


Place the Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix into a mixing bowl. Add the sachet of yeast and the salt. Stir. Using a baby’s bottle, measure the oil and warm water. Place this into a separate jug. Add a couple of drops of browning. Pour all the oil and water mixture onto the dry ingredients and using a balloon whisk, or an electric hand whisk, quickly mix well to get everything blended. It will be runny to begin with, but it will soon thicken a little. Continue to mix for about 1 minute.


Place the mixture into the tins and level the surface with the back of a wet spoon. Cover and prove in the usual way. It is ready for baking when the mixture reaches the top of the tin. Uncover and bake for about 25-30 minutes for the small loaves, or 40-45 minutes for the large loaf. The bread should be golden brown. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
