EQUIPMENT

  • Food processor
  • 1-2 shallow rimmed baking trays
  • Serrated knife
  • Cutting board

INGREDIENTS

  • 280 grams 10 ounces bread, sliced or loaf bread

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F)
  • Use a serrated knife to cut the bread into small cubes and arrange in a single layer on one or two baking trays. NOTE: if using leftover buns or an uncut loaf, slice these into pieces that are the same thickness as sliced bread before cutting into cubes.
  • Place bread into the oven and bake for 20 - 30 minutes - or until the bread cubes feel dry and crumble when crushed.
  • Remove from the oven, leave on the trays to cool.
  • Place the bread onto a shallow container, working in batches, press down on the dried bread with the base of a bottle or tin, crushing the pieces using a twisting and rocking action until you have fine crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to an airtight container as each batch is completed, seal and store.
