I cooked fish curry for lunch. And every time we had curry for meal, my son have to have it with bread. Being too lazy to make a trip to the nearest groceries store, so I baked one. I got the recipe from some online recipe site, make some changes, and voila…bread for the family. Even though the recipe said ‘white bread’, mine was brownish… ☺ ..I used whole meal bread flour instead of the regular high-protein flour…. Need me to remind us all of the 2007 resolution??-eat healthily, add more fiber in our diet. ☺ I halved the recipe, baked only one loaf.
* 2 cups warm water (45 degrees C) * 1/4 cup white sugar * 1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast * 1 1/2 teaspoons salt * 1/4 cup vegetable oil * 6 cups bread flour
1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam. (about 10minutes) 2. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. 3. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. 4. Bake at 175 degrees C for 30 minutes.
