Making the dough
Preheat the oven to 220C/ fan 200C
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
Make a well in the centre of the bowl
Add in the vegetable oil and the warm water
Mix with a spoon until a dough is formed
Put the dough on a lightly floured surface
Thump it, bump it and bang it about for 5 - 10 minutes until smooth
Make into shapes or put in a loaf tin
Leave in a warm place for around an hour until doubled in size
Cook for 15 - 20 minutes for shaped rolls or 20 - 30 minutes for a loaf
Tap the bottom of the bread with your knuckle - a hollow sound means it's cooked. Careful, it's hot!
Leave to cool, then spread with butter and lashings of strawberry jam!
In the story Bap the Baker has the idea to make a giant jam sandwich to rid the village of wasps. Think about what you might do and draw a picture of your own ingenious invention for saving the villagers from being stung.
