- Cook Time: 50 minutes
- Prep Time: 25 minutes plus 1 hr resting
- Effort: easy
- 675 g strong bread flour
- 2 tsp cracked black pepper
- 2 tsp salt
- 7 g fast action dried yeast
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 425 ml warm water
- 350 g dried figs, ready to eat, roughly chopped
- 1 pieces British cheddar cheese
- 1 handfuls salad leaves, e.g. Cos or watercress;
- 12 vine tomatoes
- 12 radishes
1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, pepper, salt and easy blend yeast. Stir in the olive oil and enough warm water to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
2. Place the dough in a lightly oiled, large bowl. Cover and leave in a warm place for approx. 1 hour until doubled in size.
3. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas 6.
4. When the dough has risen, kneed it again and incorporate the figs. Shape the dough into an oval and place on a lightly floured baking sheet. Using scissors, roughly slash the top of the loaf.
5. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
6. Serve with Cheddar, salad leaves, vine tomatoes and radishes.
