Red is the colour of love so sundried tomato bread is a must. Topped with lots of Maldon salt and rosemary it can be a meal in itself. Serve out of the oven with lashings of homemade butter.

500gr Cake Flour

4ml fine Salt

4ml White Sugar

20gr Fresh Yeast

160ml Warm Water

60ml Olive Oil

90ml Tomato Paste

125ml (85gr) Sun - Dried Tomatoes, soaked in boiling water, then chopped

1 whole Eggs, lightly whisked

2 sprigs Rosemary

5ml aldon Salt

Method :

1) Mix all the dry ingredients together

2) Combine fresh yeast and warm water, stirring till yeast is dissolved, add to dry ingredients

3) Add the remaining ingredients, forming a dough

4) Cover the bread dough with cling wrap within the bowl and set aside, till the dough has doubled in size

5) Divide the dough in 2, make two loaves, place on an oven tray that’s been spray and cooked and floured

6) Score the top of the breads with a knife or blade, egg wash, then sprinkle with rosemary and Maldon salt
