hi , guys .
And welcome back to another instalment in my pandemic recipe series .
That's hot .
And today we're gonna make two ingredient bread .
Now , before I get into this video , I should remind everybody I stay reminding we should all know what's going on by now .
It's currently April 2020 .
The world is going through a global crisis the likes of my generation have never seen before .
So I'm going to remind you again .
Please follow your respective governments advice for us in the UK .
We're on lockdown , so that means we can only go out for essential items to and from work .
You can't work from home Exercise once a day .
Keep washing your hands And if you do have to go out , keep two metres apart .
Right , so on to the bread .
Now , this is a really simple bread to make , and I was a bit kind of dubious at first , but I was on Facebook looking at a group , and someone posted a picture of this bread that used only two ingredients and I was like , Oh , I wanna give that a try .
So I asked the person who posted it .
They sent me the recipe and this is it .
And does it work ?
Well , Yes , it does .
How do I know ?
Because I made some the other day .
Admittedly , I did scorch the bottoms a bit .
You can see they're a little bit dark , but that's my own fault .
Um , I hadn't got any bacon parchment , so I put them on tin foil , which obviously transmits heat .
So of course they're gonna burn .
But actually , that bit was quite nice .
It's like a really nice , toasty flavour .
But you can see it's bread .
That's actual bread .
All right , that's what we're gonna make .
So let's crack on with it .
I'll show you what to do again .
If you look down below in the description , you can get all the ingredients that you need .
If you get your face down here , I'll show you what to do .
So these are our two magical ingredients that we're gonna make our bread with .
We've got Greek yoghurt and we've got self raising flour .
Yes , we've got salt .
But listen , everyone's got salt , so just kind of use that as a given .
But a little bit of advice for the Greek yoghurt .
Make sure you buy the proper stuff .
None of this Greek style yoghurt because it's a bit too runny and not what we need for this recipe .
The real stuff kind of looks like cream cheese .
It's nice and thick .
That's the stuff you need .
Apart from that , this is all we need .
So what I'm gonna do now is just weigh these all up so we can mix it up into a dough .
OK , so I've got my flour weighed out .
I'm gonna pop that into a mixing bowl .
Now I have halved the recipe from what I put in the description .
And the reason for that is is because I needed to test this out first to see if it worked .
So I've halved the recipe for today .
But when you make it , it's gonna make about eight rolls as opposed to four today .
And I've also got my er Greek yoghurt here .
Now , this is a 500 gramme tub .
I used half of it for the first time , so I know there's enough in there .
Oh , wait .
Before we do that , we wanna add some salt , don't we ?
About a teaspoon in there and add the Greek yoghurt to the flour and Of course , what I should have done is mix the salt into the flour to start with before I started mixing in the yoghurt .
But never mind .
So anyway , what you wanna do is get your spatula and just kind of mix it up until it forms a very loose claggy sort of dough .
It may look really dry now , but trust me , it comes together , so just keep working it for a bit .
OK , so we've got a nice loose claggy dough there , and before I kind of tip it out , I'm just gonna lightly dust a work surface and then just tip the whole thing out .
And what you're gonna do is just kind of bring it together , just like so pick up all that loose flour .
We're not really needing this like a traditional bread .
What we're trying to achieve here is to just bring it all together into a nice , smooth dough so you don't need to go mad with it .
You might need to add a bit more flour if it starts to go a bit too sticky .
So I'm just gonna work this for a couple of minutes and then I'll show you the next bit , right .
So I've needed the dough for a couple of minutes .
This is the end result again .
You don't need to , like , need it for ages and ages .
It's a nice soft dough , and what I'm gonna do is cut that into four .
But remember , if you're making the full recipe , you're gonna need to make it into eight .
So half and then half and then so on and so on .
But I'm only making four rolls , so I'm only gonna make it into four pieces .
It amazing that , innit ?
It , And just lightly dust them .
And all you're gonna do is just form them into little balls like a bread roll size .
So I'm gonna crack on with the rest of these .
We'll finish them off with some egg wash , and we can bang them in the oven .
So I've got the dough in a tray here .
Now , if you've got bacon parchment , just use that I .
I haven't got any , so I've had to kind of improvise , and I've just lightly dusted a roasting tray with some flour .
And what I've got here is one egg lightly beaten with a pinch of salt .
And what the salt does is it breaks up the white , which means it's less sort of gloopy .
If you haven't got egg , you can use some melted butter or just a brush of milk as well .
And at this stage , you can kind of make them your own .
You can jazz them up as much as you want .
You can add some seeds on there .
Fennel seeds , poppy seeds , sesame seeds , anything .
So now they've got the egg wash on .
They can go in the oven .
Now you wanna bake them off for about 20 to 30 minutes ?
All depends on your oven .
About gas , Mark five .
I'll put the conversion up on the screen now .
Now you're not gonna see a lot of rise in them .
They're not gonna sort of swell up to these nice , big sort of bread rolls , but you are gonna see a slight bit of lift .
And once you bake them off , you wanna put them on a wire rack or a plate just to cool down to room temperature before we can eat them .
So the bread is done .
I've cooled it down , just a room temperature , still a little bit warm So what I'm gonna do now Let's just smother some butter on it .
Cos what is bread without butter ?
So we have it .
Let's give it a taste .
But it's so impressive .
Honestly , now this is all play acting , obviously , because I've made these before , I know exactly what they're like , but , you know , you gotta kind of Josh it up a bit .
It has to be said , bread made with two ingredients .
I'm impressed .
I'm impressed .
It's got a slight chew to it .
Er almost like a bagel .
Slightly denser , but it's still light at the same time .
And I think that's the yoghurt .
There are some caveats with this bread , though .
I wouldn't recommend making a sandwich out of it .
It's a little bit too heavy .
When you have a sandwich , you want nice light , fluffy bread .
Um , so this is gonna work really well with something like a soup .
Excuse me ?
Something like a soup , a stew casserole .
You can sort of dunk it in .
It's gonna soak up all the nice juices , and it's gonna be really nice , but something like a bacon sandwich .
I don't think so .
I think it'd be quite nice , toasted under the grill with some butter , some nice jam on it , a bit like a S , but an absolutely cracking little bread to make .
If you've got some self raising flour kicking around some Greek yoghurt , you can make it .
And I should say that this isn't my recipe .
As such , I did convert it into metric and sort of changed the measurements just slightly , just to fit in with how we do things in the UK .
