Flower loaf.

Not really a recipe as this uses my basic bread recipe. It is simply a way of ringing the changes and making the loaf look really attractive. (Well I think it does!)

Make the loaf as directed until the final shaping a proofing. Divide the dough into 18 small balls. Using a lightly oiled 10″ cake tin place 11 balls around the outside of the tin, then a ring of 6 balls and finally one ball in the middle.

Proved but unbaked flower loaf.

Leave to prove for thirty minutes. Whilst the dough rises preheat the oven to 220c.

Brush the top of the dough with a little water and scatter over a dusting of malted flour dough if you have it, white flour if not. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden and risen.

Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
