Ingredients Standard 2L or Grand 4L Remoska cooker
Flour, plain 225g
Flour, wholemeal 225g
Salt 1tsp
Bicarbonate of soda 2tsp
Cream of tartar 2tsp

Milk 350ml


Sieve the flours and salt into a large bowl. Add the bicarbonate of soda and cream of tater, rub into the butter or lard. Stir in the sugar. Pour in sufficient milk (you may need more depending on the flour) to mix a soft dough. Do not overmix or the bread will be heavy and tough. Shape into a round on a slightly floured surface. Place a small bowl of water in the Remoska and heat for 4 minutes. Cut a deep cross in the top of the dough and dust lightly with wholemeal flour. Remove the bowl of water, place the dough in the Remoska and cook for approx. 35-40 minutes or until well risen and the bread sounds hollow when tapped on the base. Best served warm.
