  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Instant Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil


  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda and instant yeast in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add Olive Oil, and milk to the flour and slowly add water.
  • Mix well, and continue kneading for 10 mins. The Dough will be quite sticky.
  • Lightly grease a 8 x4 " loaf pan and sprinkle with cornmeal. Scoop the dough into the prepared pan. Cover the pan with a cling wrap. Set aside to rise in a warm place for 45 mins to 60 mins or until the dough is about 1/4" above the rim of the baking pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Remove the cover and bake the bread for 22 to 27 minutes or until its golden brown.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and after 5 minutes turn it out onto a wire rack to cool. Let the bread cool completely before slicing.


The recipe calls for the liquid to be warmed up in a microwave for 30~60 seconds. I simply added warm milk.
The climate was very hot when I was baking this bread and so it rose much within 40 mins. And much above the rim.
I was little in a hurry to click, so removed it before it could cool down. And hence the crumbs not properly set.
