Chilli Bread Category: Recipes

I first made this a few weeks back but I didn’t blog about it after taking the photos. Tonight I’ve made another loaf so here is the recipe but as my loaf is in the oven the pictures are from last time.

Chilli Loaf

  • 375g wholemeal strong flour
  • 375g white strong flour
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2-3 teaspoons chilli flakes (I used 2 & that provided a good heat without going OTT)
  • 7g sachet of dry yeast

How To Do It

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. Add 450ml water (at room temperature)
  3. Combine into dough & knead until elastic – around 5/10 minutes
  4. Leave to rise in bowl (cover with damp cloth) for 2 hours
  5. Knock back & shape into ‘tin’ shaped & pop in a floured tin
  6. Leave to rise again for 45 minutes
  7. Cook for 15 minutes at 230 ° c then for 20/25 minutes at 200 ° c until cooked
  8. Leave to cool on rack

Oooh Claire chilli bread wow… I make my own bread at times but never thought of using chilli and I love this idea!!

Your bread looks scrummy indeed and I could eat a slice right now with just simple butter spread over – delightful
