Salt Free White Bread

Time: 1 hour 45 mins
Yields: 16 slices


  • 450g bread flour + extra for adjusting
  • 1 ½ tbsp sugar
  • 1 instant dry yeast packet
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ cup warm water (not boiling)


1. Combine the sugar, instant yeast and 120g of bread flour in a large bowl.

2. Add the oil and warm water and mix well.

3. Add the remaining flour, gradually, while mixing. It may be convenient to start mixing and kneading the ingredients by hand.

4. If the dough is still sticky, continue kneading while adding 1 teaspoon of extra flour at a time until the dough is no longer sticky.

5. Lightly flour a flat surface and use a rolling pin to flatten out the dough into a rectangular shape about 2.5cm thick. Leave some space between the dough and the edges of the bread pan.

6. Roll the dough on itself firmly to make a roll and pinch any openings.

7. Place the roll in an oiled bread pan, cover with oiled plastic wrap and let it rise to room temperature for 30 – 60 minutes.

8. Preheat the oven to 205 degrees Celsius and bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool before slicing and serving.
