Quick-bake recipe


  • 1 lb pastry flour
  • 300 mL warm water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp dried baker's yeast 1
  • 2 tbsp milk

Temperature: 460°F ° F


Heat the water until it is warm (95°F). In a kitchen bowl, mix together the flour, salt, sugar and dried yeast. Pour in the warm water and knead for 2-3 minutes. Make a bowl with the dough, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for 20 minutes in a warm place (around 68°F) , sheltered from any drafts. Knead the dough again to remove the carbon dioxide. Sprinkle a little flour on the platter of the Emile Henry Bread cloche, make a ball with the dough and place it in the middle. Cover with the cloche and leave to rise for another 45 minutes at room temperature. Brush a little milk over the top and sprinkle some flour over the surface. Make several incisions in the surface with the Emile Henry baker's blade 2. Place in a preheated oven at 460°F and cook for 35 minutes. Leave to cool on the platter, having removed the cloche.
