Recipe by Malu8033

I got this recipe from a flour packet sold here in UK (brand name "Hovis"), I haven't made it yet but intend to.I had to add some step as it was missing from the original. The serving size is a estimate.

I have just been given some Hovis flour that was brought down from Canada by a friend who runs a commercial bakery. This is the only recipe that I could find for Hovis Bread and I will try it. But, I note that a "sweetener" to activate the yeast is missing from the recipe. I will try either honey or molasses in a quantity to suit the other ingredients. Thank you for posting. I will let you know how it turns out.
