Makes one small loaf
Takes 10 minutes to prepare, 20-25 minutes to cook
Big chef: Set the oven to: 350@F, 180@C, 160ºC fan, gas 4.
Little chef: Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl set on a damp cloth so that it doesn't move when you are working the dough.
Big chef: Carefully push the flour to the sides of the bowl to leave a hole in the centre.
Little chef: Pour the sour cream and milk into a measuring jug.
Big chef: Pour the liquid into the hole in the flour and use the table knife to mix the dough together.
Little chef: Use one hand (try to keep the other clean) to grab all of the dough into a ball. Use the dough like a dishcloth to wipe your bowl clean.
Little chef: Place the dough on a lightly floured baking tray and shape it into a 20cm circle. (You don't need to knead the dough.)
Big chef: Cut a cross through the dough, almost through to the base. This will divide the bread into four. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the bread has risen and is golden. Turn the bread upside down and tap it. If it sounds hollow it is done!
Big chef and little chef: Leave on the cooling rack until it's cool enough to eat.
Tips: If you want a soft crust, rub a piece of butter over the top of the bread when it comes out of the oven and wrap the loaf in a clean tea-towel.
Always have a grown-up in the kitchen when you cook
