3. Bara Lovespoon

Make your own delicious bread Welsh Lovespoon with Mrs Williams.



500g strong white flour, plus extra for dusting

2 tsp salt

7g sachet fast-action yeast

3 tbsp olive oil

300ml water


STEP 1 - Mix 500g strong white flour, 2 tsp salt and a 7g sachet of fast-action yeast in a large bowl.

STEP 2 - Make a well in the centre, then add 3 tbsp olive oil and 300ml water, and mix well. If the dough seems a little stiff, add another 1-2 tbsp water and mix well.

STEP 3 - Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for around 10 mins.

STEP 4 - Once the dough is satin-smooth, place it in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Leave to rise for 1 hour until doubled in size or place in the fridge overnight.

STEP 5 - Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Knock back the dough (punch the air out and pull the dough in on itself) then gently mould the dough into a ball.

STEP 6 -Place it on the baking parchment to prove for a further hour until doubled in size.

STEP 7 - Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7.

STEP 8 - Divide dough into 3 and shape 2 pieces into a heart shape and plait the other. Assemble on a baking tray. Dust the loaf with some extra flour and cut a cross about 6cm long into the top of the loaf with a sharp knife.

STEP 9 - Bake for 25-30 mins until golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped underneath. Cool on a wire rack.
