Fat free bread

Fat free bread

I need a recipe for a fat free white sandwich loaf.  I have a great recipe but it has milk and butter in.  I do a poolish before.

 175g very strong bread flour
325g bread flour
14g salt
14g yeast
115g water
216g milk
40g butter

I swapped the milk for water and swapped the butter for fat free yogurt and got a very strange beast :O  It kneaded nicely if a little wet but after the first rise it went back to looking like an active poolish and I struggled to get it into any shape to get into the bread tin after knocking back.

My main problem was not being able to grease the tin and the loaf stuck and looks a little hacked at.

Any advice please.

Is what I just call "bread". It's simple... Just Flour, Water, Salt and Yeast. 

Plus, that is a very strange bread recipe fat free or not - 14g salt? 


  • 500g bread flour
  • 300g water
  • 8g salt
  • 5g dried yeast (or 15g fresh yeast)

Do you wish to do a poolish?

Yes 14g salt.  It doesn't taste salty at all to me.  It's great as it lasts for at least 3 - 4 days fresh for sandwiches.

Thanks for the recipe will give it a try but will scale it down a little as it's only my husband who eats it and probably won't last as long as mine with fat :)
