Maltese bread or Hobz as they call it over there has a totally unique flavour and texture. A very crusty sourdough bread loaf with a deliciously fragrant chewy but soft inside.

10g salt
15g sugar
15g margerine
25g yeast
345ml luke warm water
1 tablespoon milk

  • Mix the flour, salt and margerine. Add the yeast.
  • Make a mixture of the luke warm water, sugar and the milk.
  • Add on to the flour and knead the mixture well until the dough is white and elasticated.
  • Place in a bowl, seal with cling film and a wet dish towel, place in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  • Work the dough, cut into small pieces (50g). Place on a baking tray, paste with egg, cut with a knife and let the pieces rest for about 15 minutes.
