Easy Bake White Bread

I had the baking bug one day this week, but I didn’t really have any ingredients in for a big cake baking session and I didn’t want to go out in the snow. So I was having a look on Google (recipes without eggs is my favourite search) and liked the idea of making some bread. However many recipes called for ‘strong white bread flour’ something I do not have in my kitchen so I had to keep looking, after a while I came across something that looked more interesting so after removing some of the flavouring ingredients that did not wet my appetite here is my recipe for Easy Bake White Bread;

Ingredients

  • 1 Knob of Melted Butter
  • 500g of Plain Flour
  • 7g of Dried Yeast
  • 1tsp of Salt
  • 375ml Luke Warm Water
Easy Bake White Bread

Method

  1. Firstly grease a loaf tin with the melted butter and set to one side
  2. The mix the flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl
  3. Make a well in the middle  and add the water
  4. Stir until all of the ingredients are combined
  5. Then use your hands to bring the mixture together (this is very sticky)
  6. Put on to a floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes until the bread is ready (you know the dough is ready when you poke it with your finger and it springs back to shape)
  7. Once the dough is ready grease a bowl with the melted butter
  8. Shape into a ball and place into greased bowl turning the dough over to coat it in butter
  9. Cover the bowl in cling film (plastic wrap) and put somewhere warm to double in size, this will take around an hour, a good place to let the dough rise is next to a preheated oven if you do not have an airing cupboard
  10. Once the dough has doubled you need to ‘knock’ the air out of it by literally punching the centre of the dough to release any additional carbon dioxide build up
  11. Again move the dough to a floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes
  12. Now preheat your oven to 200C
  13. Shape the dough to your loaf tin and place inside
  14. The lightly butter the surface of the loaf before placing back somewhere warm to ‘prove’ for 30 minutes before baking
  15. Once the loaf has ‘proved’ lightly brush the loaf with warm water and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes
  16. When the loaf is cooked remove from the oven and immediately take the loaf out of the tin to cool, this allows the crust to remain crusty!

I was not expecting much of my first attempt at making bread but I though that I had to start somewhere, however I was thoroughly pleased and slightly surprised that it came out really well and tasted just like bread but better.  This Easy Bake White Bread was just that, however this recipe can be adapted to what you fancy, I think next time I may add some seeds to the dough but one thing is for sure, I will be making a lot more of my bread myself now I have this recipe.

    This seems much easier than I would have thought and your bread looks amazing and delicious! I love homemade bread but have never tried to do it myself. I may have to give this recipe a go though 🙂 Thanks for sharing it

    1. It was so much easier than I thought it would be too, and it tasted great too, you must try it and let me know how it goes!

  3. Nothing better in this world than fresh baked bread right from the oven slathered with butter! While there are plenty of foodie-delights I love in this world, this might be my one last wish!

    Thanks!!
