Homemade Bread

Posted on 10:55 in
Making homemade bread is a great satisfaction, especially if it comes out very good as mine! Try my recipe and let me know!

White Flour  250 gr.
Manitoba Flour  250 gr.
Water   300 ml.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil  50 gr.
Salt   8 gr.
Fresh Yeast 7-8 gr
Sugar   1 teaspoon
  • Take a glass  and dissolve the yeast in a little water (removing it from the dose) with the teaspoon of sugar.
  • In another glass, dissolve the salt with a little water and all the oil.
  • Put the sifted flour and the mixture of water, yeast and sugar in the kneader, or do this step by hand. 
  • Start to knead,  incorporating the remaining water, a bit at a time, alternate it with the mix of water, oil and salt.
  • It's possible that you don't need the all dose of water.
  • The dough is ready when it will have a ball shape.
  • At this point, transfer the mixture into a lightly floured bowl and cover with the plastic wrap.
  •  Let rise for about 2 hours in the closed and off oven and turn its light on if you want to speed up the rising process.
  •  If you prefer to use less yeast, just allow the bread to rise longer
  • When the dough has doubled in volume, place it on a work surface lightly dusted with flour. Shape the dough as you like. I tried to make different types: braided, round and so on.

  •  Place the bread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let rise, again in the oven, for about 1 hour. Put a bowl with water on the bottom of the ovento prevent the dough to dry out.
  • Bake in conventional oven at 200° for 25 minutes.

 Update ---> You can use 500 gr of white flour and the result will be the same.
