Bread...




 I've been meaning to put this recipe down for quite some time, it's been more than two months!!

Guess Im not yet done getting over my habit of procrastination....but I guess better late ....

Anyway, so I've always struggled with bread, never really got down to making awesome bread except for the pizza bread variety....so I decided to give it one more try with a lot of trepidation...But the bread gods did decide to finally smile upon me and the results(and recipe) are below...
 
 

Ingredients:

All purpose flour 1.5 cups
Wheat flour 1 cup
Warm water 1/4 cup
Milk(warm) 1/2 cup
Yeast 1.5-2 tbsp(crumbled)
Sugar 1.5 tbsp
Olive oil 2 tbsp

Pinch of salt

In a mixing bowl add the flours ,crumbled yeast, sugar and salt. Make a well and add the oil, and milk and start kneading , adding water as required. Knead for about 8-10 minutes until dough is warm. Leave covered with a damp thin cloth in a warm corner(I normally put mine on top of the fridge) for an hour, until dough rises to almost 2ce its size.

Punch the air out of the dough and lightly knead into the shape required(I put mine in the loaf tin), and leave covered for half an hour. Brush the top with milk/whisked egg and bake at 175 deg C for half an hour(or until base of the pan sounds hollows to tapping), in a preheated oven.

It took me over a decade to learn how to make bread.
