Jamaican hard dough bread

This is Jamaican hard dough bread. However, you can bake your own hard dough bread, just follow this recipe.


1 lb. all-purpose flour (depending on the size bread and the amount use more flour)
4 tablespoon margarine
1 teaspoons. instant dry yeast
2 tablespoon sugar (granulated)
1 cup water
11/2 teaspoon salt.


Combine all the dry ingredients.Use the tips of your fingers to rub butter into flour. Add water and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured board. Knead for 10-20 minutes then place in a large greased bowl. Use your hand to rotate the dough to make sure the surface is greased. Cover with a dry towel then place in a warm area for 45 minutes. Punch dough down to get rid of excess carbon dioxide gas. Use a rolling pin to roll out dough to a rectangular shape. Use hands to roll up the dough as tightly as possible, ensuring that the corners are folded inwardly (forming a "log" shape).  Place in a greased loaf pan 29cm x 13cm x 6cm and allow to proof for 35 minutes. Bake at 190°C until done or until bread moves away from sides of pan. Allow to cool.


Now your hard dough bread should look like this.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your feed back is much appreciated. I took a peak at your blog as well, thumb up.


I just made my bread. It's very good and it certainly is as dense as traditional hardo bread. I haven't had "authentic" hardo bread in a long time so I can't honestly say I'm in a position to say it tastes like the bread of my childhood but I do like it. I baked it at gas mark 5 (375 degrees F) for 1 hour.


Thanks for the comment. I must confess, I too baked my bread, it doesn't taste as mild as the original


thanks for visiting my blog. The home-baked bread doesn't taste as mild as the original.
