500 gm bread flour
10 gm malt flour (optional)
8 gm bread improver
10 gm instant dry yeast
3 gm oregano
3 gm rosemary (plus extra for topping)
1 gm ground black pepper
8 gm salt
310 gm cold water
30 gm olive oil

Put all ingredients, except olive oil, into a mixing bowl. Mix at low speed first for abt 2 mins. Then add in olive oil and beat at medium speed for abt 15 mins until dough is fully developed. Round up dough and coat the cling wrap with a thin layer of olive oil and cover dough to rest for 1 hour. Then gently press out the air and leave dough to rest for another 5 mins. Oil a baking tray with olive oil.

Roll out dough to fill the baking tray evenly. Prove for another 1 hour or until dough is double in size. Using finger make deep holes all over the dough. Brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle some rosemary over it.

Baked in a pre-heated oven at 220 C deg until crisp-crusted underneath and lightly brown on top. Immediately brush with olive oil and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Malt flour is a flour containing maltose sugar, extracted from sprouted barley or wheat. It is a nutritious additive to bread. I think any of the shops like PH or Sin Lik will have them. Actually for me I don't have malt flour so I substituted it with rye flour since I have it in my fridge.

1. Can I substitute the maltose flour with wholemeal flour?
2. I am using a breadmaker to make the dough. In that case, when should I add in the olive oil?

Linda, I normally add my oil together with the liquids when making bread in my breadmaker.
