My basic bread recipe
| 4 cups flour | 2 Tbsp olive oil | 2 Tbsp honey | 1 egg | 1.5 tsp sea salt | 2 tsp dry yeast | 1.5 cups tepid water | optional: raisins, cheese, olives and/or sundried tomatoes

Mix all ingredients together and knead for about 8 min. You can do this in your Kenwood. It is very easy. Cover dough in the bowl with a damp cloth or oiled cling film. Allow to rise till double for about 2 hours. Knead for about half a minute. Shape it, and put it into well greased bread tins. Let rise again till double. You can brush egg and milk over the top and sprinkle with seeds. Heat oven till 180C. Bake for about 30 min, until golden brown.

This recipe works well for Challah, a traditional plated bread served at Shabbat meals.
