Brand Marketing

Hovis has been baking bread from the finest ingredients for more than 130 years.

The story of Hovis begins in 1886 with a miller named Richard 'Stoney' Smith from Macclesfield, Cheshire radically changed the way flour was milled. Separating the wheatgerm from the flour without losing any of the vitamins or minerals found in the wheatgerm.

The range may have changed and evolved over the years, but the exceptionally high standards of care and expertise never will.

Preparation and Usage

Each 7g sachet = 2 teaspoons

Hand baking
(Makes 1 large white loaf)
500g (1lb 20z) Hovis strong white bread flour
25g (1oz) butter
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 Hovis fast action bread yeast sachet
275ml/9f1 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 then stir in the yeast.
2. Stir in the water and mix into a soft dough by hand.
3. Knead for 10 minutes by hand or 5 minutes in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, then place in a bowl and cover with a clean, damp tea towel (this stops the dough from drying out). Leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and shape the dough then place in a greased 2lb tin or on an oven tray. Cover with a clean, damp tea towel and leave in a warm place until doubled in size (45 min to 1 hour).
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.

Golden Crust

Soft Crust
