To start the dish, make the treacle bread. Add all of the ingredients (except the salt) to the bowl of an upright food mixer and mix for 6 minutes. Add the salt and mix for a further 2 minutes
  • 250g of white bread flour
  • 250g of wholemeal flour
  • 30g of fresh yeast

  • 220ml of warm water
  • 15g of salt
2
Transfer the dough to a bowl, cover with cling film and set aside to prove for 1 hour

After 1 hour (the mix should have doubled in size) roll out the dough and place into a loaf tin. Set aside for a second prove for a further 30 minutes
4
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 8
5
Add a bowl of water to the oven to produce steam and cook the loaf for 15 minutes. After this time, spray with water and cook for a further 3 minutes

Leave the bread to cool completely before placing in the freezer. Once semi-frozen, slice the bread thinly on a meat slicer or with a sharp serrated knife. Once the bread is sliced, dehydrate in a warm, dry place for 2 hours or until it is crispy
