This recipe as an American favorite. The bread has a crispy outside with a soft inside. Baked in an oven when taken out the bread is golden brown with a light and airy feel.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams bread flour
  • 10 grams salt
  • 300 milliliters water (warm)
  • 5 grams fresh yeast

Directions

  1. In a bowl, blend the flour and the salt using an electric mixer. Slowly add the water. A few minutes before mixing completely, add the yeast. Knead the dough by hand until it is no longer sticky.
  2. Cover the bowl with a moist towel and place the bowl in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  3. Cut the dough with a knife into 120-gram portions. Let the portions rest for another 15 minutes, covering them with a moist rag.
  4. Press down on the dough balls, creating 20 to 25-centimeter long rectangles.
  5. Fold the two edges towards the center.
  6. Fold in half.
  7. Firmly press down and create a loaf shape.
  8. Place the loaves on top of a cotton or linen rag, sprinkled with flour. Create creases between the loaves so they won’t stick together. Let them rest for 90 minutes covered with a moist rag.
  9. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  10. Place a pan containing wet rags and water in the oven, this will create vapor and make the bread crust crispy.
  11. Place the loaves on a baking sheet, create a lengthwise cut on each loaf using a sharp knife. Sprinkle some flour on the loaves.
  12. Bake at 200 C for about 15 minutes using the convection oven setting.
  13. Take out of the oven and cool on a rack.

I have never been big on making my own bread because of the time it takes to make it. However, this recipe requires a significantly less amount of time for making it and boy did it taste good. It was light and airy and was so enticing when you ate it with butter while it was warm. I look forward to making my own 5 star homemade bread from here on out.
