One of my original soft bread recipe was created a few years ago. The most rewarding experiences as a baker and foodie can have. It roughly 72% hydration, the dough is highly hydrated. you will love the bread texture and aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through at your home. It’s easy to make bread that everyone can best enjoyed fresh from the oven.
(Whole dough 325g)
34g each dough
• 120g cold milk
• 20g granulated sugar
• 1 tsp, 3-4g dried yeast
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 170g bread flour
a tsp vegetable oil for oiled the bowl and fermentation.
1 tsp honey or golden syrup
2 tsp warm water
1) In a bowl, add the milk, sugar, dried yeast, salt and bread flour. use a spatula to stir until combined.
2) Greased the same bowl, cover with the lid, proof in the warm oven 30-35℃ for 30 minutes or cold fermentation overnight for the first proof.
3) Pushed all the air out and divide the dough into 12 pieces. shape into a round ball. sprinkle flour on top and then place them on a prepared tray and second rise again for another 30 minutes.
4) Bake in preheated oven 150°C for 15 minutes. before 3 minutes baking, take it out brush honey or syrup water over the crust and sprinkle some grated mozzarella and cheddar cheese on top.
1) Yeast is best stored in the refrigerator, as the fungud in it will be killed at high temperatures. Before using yeast check the production date and storage life of your yeast. Refrigerate it as soon as possible after each use. The main cause of bread falling to rise is bad yeast.
2) Store a bread in an airtight, re-sealed bag or airtight container and keep fresh for 2 days.
3) The best way to store bread for freshness is in the freezer for about 1 month. after defrost the bread, reheating and serve, tastes like fresh-baked.
4) you can make toast straight from the freezer. just pop your frozen slice of bread straight into the toaster, there’s no need to defrost it first. It will only take slightly longer to cook than fresh bread.
5) If it’s a winter day, the common problem is that dough won’t rise. Ideal rise temperatures are between 35°C-37°C. Using a warm oven by turn your oven on and off or with boiled water on the underneath to help your dough rise perfectly.
6) It’s recommended to use an oven thermometer.
