BREAKFAST BREAD LOVE
Our trusty flat toaster broke 2 days ago and as I normally have Woolies rye bread toast (from the freezer) I was in a bit of a quandary as to what to have for breakfast today. So as it was super early I made some bread. It came out awesome, not heavy at all and with a sinful crust. Here is the easy peasy recipe, it is a very sticky dough so don't freak out!
500g stone ground cake flour - says strong plain flour but I only had the stone ground
7g sachet fast-acting dried yeast - ours only come in 10g sachets so I used that no worries
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
300ml milk, warmed
50g butter melted
1. Mix the flour, yeast and salt. Reserve about 1 tablespoon beaten egg, then beat in the rest with the milk and butter. Mix to a soft dough. Knead for 10 minutes. (I cheated and used my Kitchen aid with dough hook for 5 minutes).
2. Butter 2 18cm sandwich tins. Ha ha just realised this bread is supposed to be round, wondered why the picture looked funny. Divide the dough in half and press into tins. leave to double in size, about 20 mins.
3. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Brush the loaves with egg and bake for 20 minutes.
