We’re now a few weeks into this year’s Great British bake off, and it seems as though this season has already become compulsive Thursday night viewing for any of us who aspire to be a good baker. Crammed packed with delicious cake and bread making skills,  some final products are worthy of Mary Berry’s crown and some not even making it past the bin.
So continuing the theme of last week’s British Bake off we’ve found a couple of delicious tear and share bread recipes you can easily make at home.
Sage and onion Share bread recipe – on the BBC website
These are the ingredients you’ll need:
•            150ml/5fl oz whole milk, plus extra for glazing
•            400g/14oz strong white flour, plus extra for kneading
•            7g/¼oz sachet fast-action dried yeast
•            1 tsp caster sugar
•            1 tsp fine sea salt
•            15g/½oz butter
•            1 tbsp sunflower oil, plus extra for greasing
•            1 large onion, peeled and chopped
•            1 garlic clove, crushed
•            15-20 sage leaves, chopped, plus extra for garnish
•            freshly ground black pepper
For the full instructions take a look at their site – if you have a bread maker just warm the milk, add to the rest of your bread ingredients and put on a white bread setting.
Baked Camembert with tear and share bread
•            500g of strong white flour
•            1½ tsp of caster sugar
•            25g Butter
•            ¼ tsp of salt
•            350ml water
•            1 tsp of yeast
•            Camembert
If you have a bread maker, simply add the yeast first, then the flour and the rest of the ingredients and put on a dough recipe setting.
Once your bread has risen, form into small bun shapes and leave to rise in a warm environment for around 40 minutes. Then put your camembert on a baking tray and place the dough balls around the edge, brush with beaten egg, and bake for around 15-20 minutes and serve immediately, this tastes delicious with fig jam.
