Homemade bread 


  • 500 grams semi-white wheat flour Čakovečki mlinovi 
  • 2 sachets dry yeast or 40 g fresh yeast 
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • ½ tablespoon sugar or honey 
  • 1 large tablespoon fine salt (about 10 g, do not dissolve in yeast) 
  • 270 ml water 


Dissolve the yeast and sugar or honey in a glass of warm water and pour the mixture into the flour. Add 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, salt and remaining water and knead for at least 7 minutes, until you get an elastic, smooth and soft dough. 

Form the dough into a ball, place in a floured bowl and leave to rise covered with cling film or a damp cloth for about 15 minutes in a warm place. Then shape the dough into a loaf (one or more) and fill one or two rectangular tins brushed with oil. Cover with cling film or a damp cloth and let it rise for about 2 hours in a warm place until the dough doubles in size. 

Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 30 minutes. 

Allow the bread to cool well before cutting.
