bread, without TMX

I am posting this recipe here as I am giving a Bread making class to people who do not have a TMX, but need easy access to this recipe and process.

Bread Recipe

Will make 8 rolls, or 2 Bread Sticks, or a loaf of bread, or a mixture of these.

520g bread flour, (strong flour)
300 mls. warm water
2 teaspoons of dried yeast.
1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar. ( if you use a bread Mix such as Laucke, do not add these.)

Place all ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a spoon.
When it starts to come together , knead 50 times, in the bowl.
Spray bowl and dough generously with water, so there is no dry flour in the bowl.
Cover with plastic and place in a warm place to rise and double. 30 mins to 1 hour.
Set oven to 200/220 o C.(will take 20 mins.)And place dish with water in bottom of oven.
Turn out on to floured bench and knead again 20 times.
Form into rolls, bread sticks or loaf. For loaf place seam under.
Spray with water and cover with plastic and place in a warm place to double. Will take less time than first rise.
When doubled , cut 1 cm. slashes in top , spray with water and bake......
Rolls 15 mins.
Bread sticks 20 mins in tin and the 5 mins turned up side down.
Loaf 25 mins and 10 mins out of tin.
Cool on wire rack and try not to cut it until cool.

Can replace 100g of flour with wholemeal flour, seeds ,oats. rye or spelt.
It will take a little longer to rise.
