Why choose Hovis yeast?
Perfect for hand baking and bread machines.
Suitable for any recipe requiring quick, fast action, instant or easy bake yeast, because there is no need to activate in water first.
Quicker and easier (than fresh or "dried active" yeast)
Only one kneading and proving is required (hand baking).
Simply add straight to the dry ingredients.
For best results use with bread flours from the Hovis range.

Preparation and Usage

Hand baking
(Makes 1 large loaf)
500g/1 lb 2oz Hovis strong white bread flour
25g/1oz butter
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 sachet of Hovis yeast
300ml/10 fl oz warm water
2 tsp sugar to give added flavour and thicker crust (optional)

1 In a large bowl, mix together the flour, (optional sugar) and salt, rub in the butter and then stir in the yeast.
2 Stir in the water and mix into a soft dough by hand.
3 Knead for about 5 minutes in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, or turn out onto a floured surface and knead well for 10 minutes by hand.
4 Shape the dough, then place in a greased 2lb tin or on a baking tray.
Cover with a clean, damp tea towel (this stops the dough drying out) and leave in a warm place until doubled in size (1 1/2-2 hours).
5 Uncover and bake in an oven, preheated to 230°C (450°F, gas mark 8) for 30-35 minutes.
(The baked loaf should sound hollow when tapped underneath)
6 Take the loaf out of the tin and cool on a rack.
