Bread

IMG_2938

The ingredients:

700gm of flour

1 packet of instant yeast

100gm of sugar ( i use brown sugar)

1 teaspooon of salt

1 egg

400 ml water

70gm butter / shortening

50 ml milk

150 gm of mix fruits

Step 1: Sieve flour and mix well with the yeast and add in the water.  It’s going to be messy and wet and after mixing/kneading it let it rest for about 10 minutes.

Step 2: Add in sugar, salt, egg,  butter and milk. Mix them well and let it rest for another 20 minutes.

Step 3: Add in the mix fruits, and by now it should have risen up nicely. Feel free to apply the punch technique.

You can weigh about 50gm and set em on the baking tray, otherwise I just freehand-rustically throw in unevenly on a greased tray.

Let it rest another 15-20 minutes, milk glaze it then bake for 170’c 45 minutes. If the top starts to turn too brown, cover loosely with aluminium foil.

Happy breading

hey !
you should try it too, i love the waiting part, seeing those dough rise and doubles is lovely.

Yeah throw in some cinnamon powder, some nutmeg works too.

SInce i had some leftovers, I slice em about 1 cm and pan fry em with some butter and olive oil for supper last night and it's lovely.

Wow!
glad i dropped by! Must admit it was yr post title tht caught my attention. ;p

a packet of instant yeast is 11g? cos i got a few packets at home and it says 11g.
Flour would be plain flour or bread flour specifically?
Can i use wheat flour? Thks!

hi nomadGourmand,
Thanks for dropping by.

So you're a bread person hah :)

yeah i use those 11gm instant yeast.
If you use bread flour you get finer texture, but here i use plain flour. Want to keep it rustic ! But remember to sieve it.

Have a nice day

Chaokar.
