Triple-raised Brilliant Bread

By Jen G on 8th Jan, 2019

Triple-raised Brilliant Bread


  1. Mix together yeast and lukewarm water, set aside.
  2. In bowl, mix 2 cups flour, salt, sugar, oil and hot water until mixed. Then add yeast and a further 2 cups of flour and mix together. Continue mixing by hand, add flour as needed until mixture isn't sticky to touch. 
  3. Turn out onto surface and knead for 10 minutes, using more flour if needed. Generally the recipe needs 5 cups flour in total, but no worries if you need the full 6 to get the preferred consistency.
  4. When happy with knead, place in bowl and let rise to twice the size.
  5. When risen, turn out and knock about for a few minutes before returning to bowl for a 2nd rise to double size.
  6. Section dough out into preferred tins or shapes -  this mix with make 3 traditional loafs but spilt out how you wish. Allow the mixture to rise for a 3rd time in its tin.
  7. Cook for 10 mins on 200 deg C (conventional), then for a further 30 mins on 170 deg C (conventional). Cover the top with foil if bread starts to catch too much colour before fully cooking.

Recipe Notes

Not only does triple-raised bread sound fancy if you have friends and family coming over but it actually develops the bread's flavour and increases its shelf life.
