Yesterday I shared a photo of some #homemadebread and a couple of people were interested in the recipe I used. I'll share it below, but I'm not going to go into extreme detail because I'll assume you've made some bread before, & it's hard for me to write shit out sometimes.
White Bread 🍞
2 1/4 tsp dry yeast
2 1/4 cup warm water
1/4 white sugar
1 tbl salt
2 tbl oil (I used olive)
5 - 6 cups flour
Vegan butter to brush on top
1) Get your bread bowl and add your warm water & sugar and whisk. Add the yeast and wait until it gets foamy- about ten minutes. After that, add your salt & oil.
2) Incorporate your flour a half of a cup at a time. You want the dough to be slightly sticky, by not so much that it stays stuck to your finger. Take it out of the bowl and knead with your hands for 5 minutes until it's a smooth ball.
3) Place the ball back in your bowl and toss it lightly in oil. Cover with plastic wrap for an hour and let double in size.
4) After the doubling, turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide it in half. Roll each half into a rectangle about ten inches long.
5) For one, I roll the rectangle into a log and place in a bread pan to rise again for another hour. The other rectangle gets cut into half inch - one inch strips. I roll the strips over into a ball and place next to each other in a 8x8 circle pan to rise alongside the bread pan.
6) Preheat your oven to 375f and place both pans in for 25-30 minutes. Once they are golden brown on top, and sound hollow when you tap them, they're done!
7) Brush with vegan butter for flavor and to make the tops a little softer. I let rest in the pan for 15-20 minutes, and then let the loaf cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack. The rolls get eaten right out of the oven 🤗
