The softest, fluffiest bread you will ever eat, free from artificial ingredients and preservatives. Bread machine is a life saver for everyday bread, honestly! Just threw everything in the bread machine, and then press ferment until the beep noise. Take it out and shaped into as many as you want the bread rolls. this would save a lot of time and of course save life too. There's nothing better than freshly baked bread.
To make the roux:
• 140g water, warm to hot about 65C
• 25g, 2 tbsp bread flour
• 140g water roux
• 70g cold milk
• 20g granulated sugar
• 280g bread flour
• 1 tsp, 5g allinson yeast
1 tbsp, mild olive oil / vegetable oil
Sugar or honey glaze:
1 tbsp brown sugar / honey
1/2 tbsp hot or warm water
1) In a saucepan, heat water, until the water is warm to hot 65°C , then add bread flour. quickly whisk and cook until thickened and smooth paste forms. (using a whisker, will be much easier than a wooden spoon or spatula to avoid lumps. The roux can also be cooled to room temperature first, and stored in the fridge up to a 3-5 days.
2) Place the water roux, cold milk, sugar, bread flour and yeast into the bread pan. Press the MENU button until desired program ''raw dough'' is selected. so that the machine does all the mixing and kneading. Once the process has been completed, add mild oil and continue ''stir 2'' until beeps will signal. close the lid gently.
3) Press the MENU button again until you reach ''ferment''. The bread maker will allow your dough to rise for 30 minutes or until beep to signal and then you take it out of the machine.
4) Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, punch down the dough, and divide into 16 pieces or as many as you desire. shape into balls, then roll out each ball into a oval shaped. roll up the dough and cut in half like a rose in shaped.
5) Rise in the warm oven for 30 minutes. Bake in no preheated oven 150°C, until the buns are golden brown, about 18 minutes. (Baking time depends on the size and shape of the bread being baked).
6) Once breads have cooked, remove from the oven. Make a honey syrup by mixing honey with warm water, and stir. Brush the syrup generously up the sides and over the top of the bread. Eaten fresh is definitely best.
1) Yeast is best stored in the refrigerator, as the fungud in it will be killed at high temperatures. Before using yeast check the production date and storage life of your yeast. Refrigerate it as soon as possible after each use. The main cause of bread falling to rise is bad yeast.
2) Store a bread in an airtight, re-sealed bag or airtight container and keep fresh for 2 days.
3) The best way to store bread for freshness is in the freezer for about 1 month. after defrost the bread, reheating and serve, tastes like fresh-baked.
4) If it's a winter day, the common problem is that dough won't rise. Ideal rise temperatures are between 35°C-37°C. Using a warm oven by turn your oven on and off or with boiled water on the underneath to help your dough rise perfectly.
5) If you don't own a bread maker, it can be made by hand, knead until the dough smooth and rise in the warm oven for 1 hour and continue the steps.
6) It's recommended to use an oven thermometer.
