Being Seen To Be Green: April Week 1: BAKE
So you may have heard there is a yeast shortage in the country, so we thought, lets try a bread recipe that doesnt need yeast...at least not in the conventional way! So here is a recipe for a no-yeast needed bread. We would love to hear how you get on!

YOU NEED • 380g self-raising flour, plus a pinch for dusting • 100g caster sugar • 1 x 330ml can or bottle of dark beer
METHOD: Preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C) and grease and line a standard 2lb loaf tin with a little butter and greaseproof paper. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, and add the sugar followed by the beer. Pour the beer in gradually so it doesn’t froth too much. Mix everything together using a wooden spoon and transfer the dough to the tin. Dust the top with a little flour before putting it in the oven. Bake the loaf for 45-50 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the crust on top turns golden (and you can stick a skewer down the centre of the loaf to check the inside is cooked through). Turn it out onto a wire rack to cool. If you can’t get your hands on a dark beer, pale ale will do just fine – or you could even use a can of low-sugar lemonade for a slightly sweet-slightly salted loaf that goes well with cheese.
