Rebecca's cob loaf

3 cups plain flour
1 sachet dried yeast
1 pinch salt
enough water to form into a workable dough

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients and add water slowly until you reach the desired consistency. Turn out on a floured board and knead well until dough is elastic. Put back in bowl, cover with a clean cloth and leave in a warm place until dough doubles in size (about 1 hour). Punch dough down, turn onto floured board, and knead again. Shape into a round cob loaf, brush top with milk, and bake in a hot (220‘C / 430’F) oven for 20 minutes or until done.
