Emilia’s Bread

A compact and tasty bread that lasts for nearly a week without getting old. It is the recipe of a friend’s friend, that’s why it is called this way. Perfect both served lukewarm and cold.

Time of preparation

about 5 hours in total


2 loaves

What did I use

a baking tray, sheets of oven paper, a large bowl, a rag


600 gr flour

1 tablespoon of salt

1 full tablespoon of olive oil

1 teaspoon of sugar

300 ml of lukewarm water

25 gr of fresh beer yeast

How did I do

I melted the yeast with the sugar in the water.

I mixed flour and salt, I added olive oil and finally the mixture of water, yeast and sugar.

I kneaded with my hands for about 10 minutes, until the dough was compact and smooth.

I put it in the bowl again, and I covered it with a wet rag.

I let it grow for about 3 and a half hour.

I cut it in 2 parts and I formed two loaves. I covered again and I spreaded with some oil and water on the surface.

I let it grow for half an hour more and I baked at 200°C for about 40 minutes.

I let it cool and served.

Buon appetito!
