  • 320 ml Water
  • 2 teaspoons Caster Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 25 g Fat - Rapeseed or Olive Oil
  • 550 g Strong Bread Flour
  • 1.75 teaspoons Breadmaker Yeast


  • Using a breadmaker, you are going to choose the dough setting which normally takes a couple of hours. If you use a pizza dough setting, you will have to do two proves, not the one used for this recipe.
  • Add the water in first to the bowl. Then add the oil and layer the flour on the top, so that it covers all the water completely.
  • I add the salt and sugar to one side of the bowl so that it is kept dry on top of the flour.
  • Add the yeast, again, making sure to keep it dry at this stage by adding it to the top of the flour, but away from the sugar and salt.
  • Leave your dough until it has finished its setting and simply shape into balls on a greased tin. I'm never precise with this, so my softies come out all shapes and sizes which is fine for us. I use a little flour to coat my hands as the dough is often very sticky otherwise. Leave your dough to prove on the greased tin, until it has at least doubled in size. I tend to either use cake release spray or the one cal oil sprays to grease my baking trays.
  • Simply bake in an oven around 200C for approximately 15 minutes. Keep a check on your softies and if you think they are cooked earlier, simply insert a skewer into the side of one to see if it comes out clean.
  • Ours never seem to go cold before they are used. This size of batch makes about 6 - 8 large softies, or up to 12 small ones.
