Basic Bread Making

How awful is this weather, instead of sun bathing I've been baking, last week it was cakes, today I decided to make some bread.
Now normally I just use the bread maker and often prepared mixes from Lidl, today I wanted to make some bread rolls.
You can use a mixer with a bread hook or as I did I used the bread maker to mix the dough, so in this order you need.

300ml of cold water
10g Salt
500gm bread flour
2 satchets Levure boulangére (dried yeast)

Mix the ingredients together, then place onto a floured surface and knead well.

Put the dough in a bowl, cover and leave in a warm place, guard dog is optional.

Leave till it doubles in size.

Knock it back on a floured surface.

Put the dough in a tin, or make into bread rolls or a long baguette and put on lightly greased paper or a baking tray, if your doing rolls make sure you leave plenty of room around them.
Like this.

Cover with a clean cloth then put them back in a warm place to double again.

Put them into the oven at 200C till golden brown, about 20mins

Guard dog still optional.

For a loaf like this use the same ingredients but only one satchet of levure, bake in your bread maker on the FRENCH setting.
