Victorian Milk Bread


This is a basic bread and it is easy to make. It comes with a soft crust and crumb, perfect for a morning toast with butter and jam.

I divided my dough into 3 equal parts. Having "itchy fingers", I felt that I had to add some extras into my plain bread.

So, each dough had some jam spread randomly on them after knocking down the dough the first time.


My 3-in-1 milk bread in one big loaf.


Not that pretty but well, this was part of the fun of baking. :)


Recipe (without the jam of course):
  • 300g bread flour

  • 1 tsp of instant yeast

  • 15g of sugar

  • 180ml of fresh milk (lukewarm)

  • 25g butter (softened)

Steps:

  1. Mix the flour, yeast and sugar evenly.

  2. Add milk and butter.

  3. Knead until smooth and elastic.

  4. Proof until double the volume.

  5. Knock down, roll into desired shape and place into baking tin.

  6. Proof until double the volume.

  7. Bake at 200 degree celsius fo about 25 minutes.

The texture of the bread is very good, I think it should be very soft ^^.

Thank you for dropping by and commenting. :) It means a lot to me. :)

To make the bread soft, I find that adding some butter or cheese into the dough helps!
