Farl bread.

This is a super beautiful dough to work with & the end result is quite lovely.  A must try for even the most timid bread bakers.


4 c of white bread flour, (I used King Arthur’s)
1 tbl salt
1 oz of yeast –  which is 2 tbl for a conversion
2/3 cup butter (11 tbl)
1 1/4 c of warm water


In your stand mixer, with the paddle, add all of the ingredients for 5 minutes.  Remove and place in an oiled bowl and cover with a towel.  Place in a warm location (I typically use my microwave) to rest for 1 hour.  Bake this in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 40 minutes or until golden brown.  Prior to baking, I did dust with flour and slash the top with a filet knife for more interest.
