Butter Bread Recipe - Home made for Breakfast

Nothing beats eating home made bread hot out from the oven. I have experimented with many types of flavour for bread but found that I still like Butter Bread more. Here is my recipe for home made Butter Bread. It is actually very easy to make you own bread. You just have to give the dough time to proof.

Flour, 4 cups
Sugar, 3 tablespoons
Butter, 2 tablespoons for dough and 4 tablespoons for folding into the dough
Dry Yeast, 1 teaspoon
Vegetable shortening, 2 tablespoon
Milk powder, 2 table spoons

Mix all the ingredients together except the 4 tablespoons of butter. Add water slowly and knead the bread thoroughly. Leave the dough aside for around 3 hours. Put the dough into the bread pan and put 4 table spoons of the butter randomly inside the dough. Let the bread proof for another 1 to 2 hours. Rub the top part of the bread with olive oil. Bake the bread in preheated oven at 200 Deg C for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve while still hot.

Alice Law said...

You mean the 4 tbs of butter KNEAD together with the dough when we place it into the tray?!! Or just fold it layer by layer?

Interesting yet simple recipe, thanks for sharing!^-^

have a great weekend!
p/s: Ordinary flour hor?

Alice Law said...

How many mls water do we need?

Pete said...

Alice : I used ordinary flour. 2 table spoon knead with bread another 4 tablespoon fold it into the dough before proofing and baking. I didn't measure the water but as long as enough to make the dough soft. Since we do not have to shape the bread, can add a little more water, so that the bread would be moist.

Oh! What a coincidence, I just bake some bread as well. It's with salt and thyme and 5 spice. Something different than the usual sweet bread.
