It was my first time making any kind of bread and so I was a little unsure of how the dough was actually meant to be. It also gave me an excuse to use my bread hook with my new stand mixer that I'd received for my birthday which I believe did a lot of the work! So, with that I left my dough in an oiled bowl for an hour to rise and goodness did it rise!
For my first time with bread I was pretty pleased so I'm sure I'll try again in the future with just a plain loaf and see how that goes!
