2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons palm oil or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Dissolve 2 1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast in a cup of warm water, let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk in 1 1/2 tsp of sugar. Leave for another 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of palm oil and whisk thoroughly.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 tsp. of salt.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients into your yeast mixture, gently shaping it into a dough. Knead till all the flour is incorporated.
  4. Put in a lined baking pan, flatten and leave for 5 minutes. (At this point, you may want to pat some sesame seeds on it, but this is optional.) I used a circular pie pan that is about an inch and a half thick and 9 inches wide.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 45 minutes. Tap the top of the bread. If you hear a nice, hollow sound, it is cooked.
  6. Take the pan out and leave the bread to cool. Split four ways.

Each triangular slice can be split in the middle for sandwiches. Or you can eat it as it is on the side of soup. Serves 2 to 3 people.
