Better bread

I must admit, I haven’t quite cracked bread-baking yet, though I love home baked bread, raised by hand, not bread machine, and fresh from the oven.

I went on a baking course, which taught me the basics. Simple enough, but sometimes, it is still hit and miss. So I have been experimenting.

And this is my latest:

Bowl 1: 1/2 cup warm milk, 1 tsp sugar and 3 tsp dried yeast. Mix in and leave until frothy.

Bowl 2: 500g all-purpose flour, 11/2 tsp salt.

Bowl 3: 3/4 cup plain yoghurt and 1 egg.

Mix all three together once the yeast mixture is frothy and knead until the dough feels bouncy (about 5-10minutes). Put in the mixing bowl, cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.

You can use this basic dough to make literally any sort of bread. I used this to make cinnamon rolls, and for once, my cinnamon rolls are soft instead of rock hard.
