This Soft White Bread Recipe is super easy to make and it is so soft and yummy. This recipe will make one bread loaf.
– About 4 cups of bread flour
– 1 tablespoon of white sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt (if you like the bread a little saltier add a little more salt)
– 250 ml of warm milk
– 1 egg
– 2 tablespoons of cooking margarine (you can use butter or coconut oil)
– 2 teaspoons of rapid dry yeast (1 package, 7g)
– a little corn meal
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Add warm milk to your Kitchenaid Mixer bowl, the temperature has to be around 110-115F, or warm to the touch. Add sugar and yeast and give it a quick mix, cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rest for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you mix should be bubbly on top and foamy, if not, you need to check the expiration date of the yeast or the temperature of milk.
With the KitchenAid mixer hook attachment on, start your mixer on speed 2 and give it a quick mix. Add the egg, margarine and salt, and then start adding the bread flour, 1 cup at a time. The trick with the flour is, it will vary depending of temperature, humidity and altitude from where you live. What I do is I add flour 1 cup at a time until it forms a little ball and starts cleaning (not sticking) on bottom of bowl, then I turn off my mixer and I touch the dough, if it sticks to my finger, I add a little more flour until my finger comes out clean from touching the dough. Once you achieve the right consistency, let your KitchenAid Mixer work the dough for about 5-8 minutes.
On a loaf pan, spray-cooking spray all over the sides and bottom of pan, sprinkle a little corn flour on the bottom of the pan, this will help the bread to come out.
Sprinkle a little flour on a clean surface and just work the dough with your hands to shape the loaf. Once smooth and shaped, add it to the loaf pan, cover with a towel, and let it rise for about 1 hour in a warm place.
Once doubled in size (about 1 hour later) preheat your oven to 350F. Once oven is preheated, you can bake the bread for about 15-20 minutes, this will also depend on your oven, so just keep an eye, once it is all golden brown, the bread should be ready.
All you need is a little butter or jam and a cup of coffee.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
