Here is my courgette bread recipe – easy and simple – perfect for a first time bread baker – and doesn’t even require a bread maker machine. I must admit it was a touch time consuming, what with all the proving time, but the result was well worth the wait. I made this as an accompaniment to a soup dinner thrown by some friend. I made caramelized onions for the first time to put into this bread, and they were delicious too – much tastier than the shop-bought version.
1. Put the flour, grated courgette and yeast in a mixing bowl
2. Make a well in the middle and add 150ml of warm water and caramelized onion. Mix well and add the extra water if needed. Knead on a floured board
3. Place the dough in the mixing bowl and cover the bowl with clingfilm which has been brushed with a little oil on the inside (this stops the risi
ng bread from sticking to the clingfilm). Leave in a warm place to ‘prove’ for 30-40 minutes until well-risen
4. After 30-40 minutes, knead the bread again and then place the dough in a lightly oiled loaf tin. Cover the tin with clingfilm which has been brushed with a little oil on the inside. Leave in a warm place to ‘prove’ for another 30 minutes. Meanwhile turn on the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (gas mark 4)
5. Pop the loaf tin into the pre-heated oven for approx. 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin. Add some olive spread or smidge of butter to serve
