Onion Bread

This is jolly tasty and can be made into all sorts of shapes, an ordinary loaf, a plait, even little rolls and best of all it is very easy ! Great with soup and as the cold weather is supposed to return at the weekend could be a handy thing to have on hand !

1 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp sugar
350ml water
1 chopped onion
550g flour (use wholemeal, white or a mixture)
25g oil
plenty of ground black pepper

Put the yeast and sugar in 50ml of warm water and leave in a warm place to get frothy. Mix all the other  ingredients together including the 300ml of water and once the yeast is frothy add that too. Turn onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes, add extra flour to stop the dough getting too sticky. Cover and leave in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. Knock down and shape. Leave in a warm place to rise for about 20 minutes then bake at 200C for 40 minutes for a loaf or plait and 20 minutes for rolls. Leave to cool on a wired rack before serving.

Remember this is a savoury loaf so don't leave it lying around so that another member of the family tries it with jam ! Yes, that has happened !
