How to make it

  • By Hand or with Food Processor
  • 1. Dissolve yeast in a little of the milk, warmed a bit, with a pinch of the sugar until it blooms, about 10 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, Put all of the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix together well.
  • 3. Add the milk, eggs, butter & proofed yeast and mix until a nice ball is formed.
  • 4. Kneed this, by hand or machine until it’s smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
  • 5. Put the ball in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a cloth and let it rise until double in size. This takes about 30 minutes, depending on temp.
  • 6. Punch it down & kneed a few more times.
  • 7. Roll it out, roll it up, pinch off the ends and fold under.
  • 8. Put it in the bread pan and bake at 350o F (175o C) for 25 – 30 minutes.
  • 9. Place it on a rack to cool.
  • In a Bread Machine
  • I. Place all of the ingredients in the bread machine in the order called for in the manufactures instructions.
  • II. Turn on the bread machine.
  • III. Key in the instructions.
  • IV. Place on a rack to cool.
  • In either case, you can brush egg white on the crust for a glazed look or a bit of olive oil for a soft crust.

    I've never used a 50/50 blend of bread flour and all-purpose. Sounds interesting. I have to agree with the other bakers about kneading by hand. It sure gets all your frustrations out! This bread sounds like it would be good braided like challah.

    While I'm with Joyce on the getting your hands into the dough, and fighting the good fight to make it rise and get great texture, I also don't have enough hours in the day, and love my bread machine up to the mixing and rising part, then take it out, cause it has this stupid little thingy that mixes it and makes a hole in the bottom of my out from the machine and into my hands for the finish...

    Well now...If it isn't.. 'The Egg and I'
    Okay Pa,put on the kettle and let's have some tea.
    Granted,bread machines are quite nice,but,there is just something therapeutic about getting the hands into the mix that can't be beat by techknowledge.
    Fresh baked bread has somehow a unique way of reaching the nucleus accumbens.
    Nice recipe RJ.
    Kind Regards
