If you suffer from arthritis,weak wrists or shoulder problem.When you have mixed your dough and it’s not too sticky, instead of kneading by hand, roll your dough out with a rolling pin. Place the ball of dough on your bench, roll it out about 1-2cms thick ( you don’t have to be too precise) Then with your hands roll it back into a ‘log’, ball it up roll again. Ball it up put it in a greased bowl,spray the top with oil cover, and allow to rise, 30-40 minuets then roll again. After the second or if you choose third time form your loaf. Let it rise and bake. If your roller sticks to the dough just moisten the roller with a little water. With a little practise you’ll be surprised how easy and quick this is. I’ve even baked the the bread after only rolling out once ( using sourdough) It worked ok.
