After my bread baking mania when I did it at least three times a week – the excitement shrank a bit. I still think that no bread is not as good as homemade bread, but I don’t have time to bake it every other day. This bread takes a little longer to prepare, but it’s worth the effort.
I baked it on a Sunday afternoon – I was home alone, cleaning the apartment, taking pics, cooking … – In other words, I wasn’t at peace and resting, as I always plan to be when I’m alone at home. It’s my ‘disease’ – I don’t know how to rest, except when I’m ‘dead tired’. I believe that one day, when I have kids, I’ll look at rest time a bit differently – but now I just want to use every moment I can to get things done. In all this, I didn’t have the will and time to get dressed and go to the bakery or grocery store to buy bread, so I thought – why not bake one? :)
I’ve shamelessly stolen the recipe :) I found it at Coolinarika, and given the author and the comments, I was sure that it would be great. And it’s very tasty, the only problem is that it crumbs a bit the next day – but that’s normal for me when you have a bread without additives, especially with corn flour.
Take a look at the original recipe here, I did not change anything.
- 250 g plain flour
- 250 g corn flour
- 1 package dry yeast
- 1/2 baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 400 ml milk
- a bit of olive oil
- Bring 300 ml milk to a boil and pour in the remaining 100 ml of cold milk. Mix the flour, yeast, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Then add most of the milk, but not all, and stir with a wooden spoon. Now you can continue to knead the dough with a mixer or hands, adding milk if necessary. If kneading with hands, put the dough on a floured surface and knead carefully - don't burn yourself. When you mix and knead the dough evenly, place it in a bowl, cover with a cloth and let it sit for about 1 hour, or until it rises.
- Then knead again and shape according to the mold you have. Coat the mold with olive oil and corn flour. Also lighty oil the loaf of bread and place in the mold. Then put it all together in a preheated oven at the lowest temperature (50-60 ° C) for 30 min, and then bake at 180 ° C for about 30 minutes until the bread gets a nice color.
- Wrap the hot bread in a tea towel and cut when cool. And I, like the author of the recipe, think this is delicious with butter and jam :) Enjoy!
