Yeast Free Basic Sandwich Loaf

Monday, June 27, 2016

     There is no better feeling than baking a bread for your family. We Indians, mostly prepare our meals at home which is fresh and off course healthiest rather than eating in a restaurant. With that if you can also make bread for your family, there is nothing like that but unfortunately, in today's busy life it is quite impossible to make every food we eat at home.
      But recently, when I read an article that the bread we are buying from market, adds an additive to prolong its shelf life, is cancerous, I've decided to bake my bread at home whenever we feel like eating it and also making more Indian breakfast fresh at home. Nowadays, people are being slow-poisoned everyday from every food we buy from market.
      In this verge of making bread at home, I was one day looking for an easy bread-making recipe which needs no yeast proofing, as I was out of it. And my good luck, I found an easy bread making video on YouTube which was a life-saver for me. It was just like we make our chapati dough, put the dough on oven and bake. You'll get a healthy loaf in no time without much hassle.
     I found the recipe really easy and helpful for many, so thought of sharing with you all. As I was making the bread for first time, I didn't take the step-by-step pics but next time I make, will definitely update this space with pics.

You need:
All-purpose Flour : 1 and 1/2 cup
Whole-wheat flour : 1 cup
Milk : 2 cups(in room temperature)
Vinegar : 1-2 tblsp.
Milk powder : 2 tblsp.
Sugar : 1 tblsp.(powdered)
Salt : 1 tsp.
Baking Powder : 1 tsp.
Baking Soda : 1/2 tsp.
Butter/oil: 1-2 tblsp.

How To :
  • Take both the flours in a large bowl. Sieve 2 times before you proceed. In the milk,a dd vinegar and let it sit for 5 minutes. You'll see milk is curdling, this is nothing other than buttermilk. when milk totally curdles, give a good stir with a spoon and keep aside.
  • Then in the wide bowl, add baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and milk powder( milk powder makes the bread taste really good). Mix all well. Now slowly add prepared buttermilk little by little and try to bind the flour. Use the whole milk and make a sticky dough. lastly add 1 tblsp. oil in the dough and knead again. The dough will be a sticky gooey after you use the whole milk. Knead for another 2-3 minutes. 
  • Now prepare your baking pan, I used a load pan, grease it with 1/2 tsp oil or butter and then dust with flour. Shake off the excess flour. Now your baking pan is ready. 
  • Preheat your baking tray at 180 degree C. Pour your sticky bread dough carefully in the baking pan, dab a little oil on the top of the dough and cut the center of the bread dough lengthwise with a knife, so that bread bakes well from the center.  Now first bake it in the middle rack for 20 minutes in 180 degree, then lower the temperature to 170 degree and bake for another 25-30 minutes. 
  • Once your bread is done, let it rest for 10-20 minutes. Then apply little melted butter over the top of the bread to keep the bread moist. When it comes to room temperature, remove from baking tray and cool on wire rack until it completely cools down.
  • It is best to use the bread next day, that means cool it overnight and use it the next morning.
