1. 1 cup of organic strong bread flour (sieved twice)
2. 1 cup of organic all purpose flour (sieved twice)
3. A teaspoon of sea-salt
4. 2 tablespoons of soft brown sugar
5. 125gm of softened butter
6. 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast
7. 500ml of warm water
8. 1/4 cup of sunflower oil


1. Place the organic bread flour and all purpose flour, sea-salt, brown sugar, active dry yeast, softened butter, sunflower oil and water in a large bowl. (All in the order which I wrote.)

2. Knead until smooth.

3. Cover the bowl with a cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for approximately 45 minutes.

4. Preheat oven at 180C.

5. Punch the dough back down and break small round pieces from the dough. Roll the dough into 15cm sticks. Shape them into candy cane shapes.

6. Place them on baking trays lined with baking papers.

7. Bake them for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

8. Allow to cool.

Bon appétit!
