Become an instant pro with these tips that will help you when making the savoury braided breads.

Mix wet and dry ingredients in a large bowl

Tip 1

To combine wet and dry ingredients more easily, use a round-bladed knife instead of a spoon to stir the dough.

Kneading the dough firmly

Tip 2

For fluffy bread, knead the dough firmly with the heel of your hand. It’s ready if it springs back slowly when pressed.

Punch down the dough in the bowl after resting

Tip 3

For an even crumb, punch down the dough in the bowl after resting. This knocks out any larger air bubbles.
