No. 48 Make Bread From Scratch

No. 48 on my list of 101 in 1001 is to make bread from scratch. Last weekend I decided to finally have a go at making some bread and boy am I glad I did because it was delicious!!!

No. 48 - Bread

I used a basic white bread recipe from Women's Weekly Cook and it was super quick and easy to follow. I took the bread around to my mum and dad's when it was fresh out of the oven and we had it with butter and jam. Yummy!!!

Basic White Bread by Women's Weekly Australia

3 tsp dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 tsp caster sugar
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp salt
30g butter melted
1/2 cup warm milk

Whisk yeast, water and sugar in small bowl until yeast dissolves. Cover and set aside for about 10 minutes or until mixtures is frothy.

Sift flour and salt into large bowl. Stir in butter, milk and yeast mixture. Turn dough onto floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until dough is elastic. Place dough into greased bowl, cover and stand in a warm place for 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (180 for fan forced). Grease oven tray.

Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll dough into 18cm x 35cm rectangle. Roll up from short side like a swiss roll. Place on tray and cut four diagonal slashes across top. Cover and stand for 20 minutes or until risen. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack and cool.
