Grilled Bread

Serves 4

Prep time 2 hours, Cooking time 20 minutes


Strong wheat flour 400g
Wholemeal flour 100g
Warm water 420g
Yeast 20g
Salt 10g
Sunflower oil 40 ml
Sugar 20g


Add the salt and sugar to the water and mix in, till both have fully dissolved, next add the
yeast and the flour to the mix.
Using a dough hook on the planetary mixer knead the dough for around 10 minutes or till it
begins to cling away from the side of the bowl.
Once kneaded, fold the dough a few times and cover with a damp cloth to prevent the
dough from drying out.
Leave the dough to double in size, once doubled drop the dough again and wait till it
doubles in size one last time.
Add the oil to the dough and oil your hands well, divide the dough into 4 equal parts.
Place the dough on a tray and leave them to rise for 15 minutes.
On a grill pan or BBQ cook the dough over a medium to low heat. Cook the bread 15 minutes
on one side, flip over and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Serve warm.
