Basic Homemade White Bread
For a 900 gm. Bread
1) Water – 320 ml
2) Vegetable oil – 1 ½ Table Spoon.
3) Good brad Maida or Unbleached bread flour – 500 gm.
4) Milk powder - 2 table spoon.
5) Salt – 1 ½ Tea spoon.
6) Sugar – 1 table spoon.
7) Dried Yeast – 7 gm. (2 ½ Tea spoon).
8) Seeds - 2 Table Spoon (Optional only- I have used pumpkin seeds.)
Use stand mixer to make the dough (it’s so easy)
Dissolve yeast in the warm water (not too hot) and put it in the mixer then add the salt, oil, sugar, milk powder and the flour.
When it is done transfer the dough into a large greased bowl (use butter to grease the bowl). Turn the dough over so that it gets greased all over. Cover the bowl and place it in a warm place to double the dough for about 45 mints.
Once it is done, slap or slightly knead the dough to remove the air bubbles.
Shape into a loaf and put into a slightly greased loaf tin (900g) 2lb, if you don’t have a big loaf pan use two greased 9 inch pans. Turn dough to coat surface in oil. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
Pre –heat the oven at 230 degree
Bake about 25-30 minutes or until loaf sounds risen.
Let rest in pans for 10 minutes before turning out to cool completely on wire rack.
Your homemade bread is ready to eat.
