  • 1 dsp dry yeast
  • 125ml warm water
  • 250g strong flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp vegetable shortening, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Unsalted butter, for greasing trays


    1. Sprinkle the yeast over the water in a large mixing bowl and leave to stand for 5 minutes until the yeast begins to foam.
    2. Add all the other ingredients to the bowl and mix together well with a fork. Gradually work the dough into a ball with your hands, then cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for 20 minutes.
    3. Cut the dough into three pieces, then roll out each piece on a floured surface until it is 2-3cm thick. Transfer the pieces to a buttered baking sheet, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise for 1.5 hours.
    4. Preheat the oven to 200C/ Gas 6.
    5. Gather up all the dough into one ball and roll out until you have a large rectangle, about 10cm by 30cm in size. Cut the dough into strips 2-3cm wide and place 1.5cm apart on buttered baking sheets.
    6. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown in colour. Let the bread sticks cool on the tray.
