A little effort


  1. Step 1:


    Mix the flours, yeast and salt in a big bowl. Mix together the melted butter, sugar and water, then mix in with a cutlery knife.

  2. Step 2:

    KNEAD Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer). 

  3. Step 3:


    Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.

  4. Step 4:

    SHAPE Knead the tomatoes, ham and Parmesan into the dough for 1 minute. Roll to a 45cm long log. Slice into three strips lengthways but leave one end attached – from that end plait the dough strips back together, pinching the end together to stick. Lift onto a floured baking sheet.

  5. Step 5:


    Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).

  6. Step 6:


    Lift the tray onto the middle oven shelf and bake for 25-35 minutes, until when you tap the base of the plait it sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack.
