Today is Halloween, and like every year, my kids are not trick or treating, but they are going to give treat candies to the trick or treaters who come to our house. In my daughter’s school there is Halloween party but it start around 5.P.M to 8.P.M. I can’t manage both of them, so I am not sending her to school party. On the baking news; I made this white bread yesterday. Usually I won’t make any white bread but one of my friends asked me to share the recipe of a simple white bread.
So friends here it is, this bread recipe is from King Arthur flour, it simple and a easy one, and it needs only all-purpose flour/maida, milk, butter , salt, yeast and little sugar. I used skim milk if you have full fat milk that will be good. Just mix everything and set aside for fermentation for 2 hours. If your kitchen is hot then it can be done in1 hour. Make sure the dough has doubled in volume. Then shape it into log and proof/ allow to double for 1 hour, or the dough should be double until an inch over the rim of loaf pan.
When you are at the end of proofing time, preheat oven to 350 ⁰F/177⁰C, and bake for 1 hour or until it is golden brown color. Don’t over bake it, will dry the bread. When it is comes out of the oven brush them with butter and remove from the pan and set aside of 30 minutes. Then slice and enjoy.
This bread makes excellent toast, try it will little jam, peanut butter or your favorite spread. You can also make excellent Panini with this bread. My Indian friends try this bread to make favorite sandwich made with tamarind and mint chutney stuffed with veggies or potato.
Give it a try you will disappoint. I can assure that.
