Recipe's preparation


    In a mixing bowl, add the yeast to the water, allow to stand for 3-4 minutes, stirring gently. Sift the flour and add to the yeast. Combine ingredients well, cover and let stand at room temperature for 12 hours. (if you are in a hurry and forget to let it sit the night before, I have done this only an hour or 2 before making the dough and its been fine. Just make sure it has lots of bubbles in it.)


    Add the milk to the TM bowl and warm for 1 min at 50 degrees speed 1, add yeast and stir on speed 1 for 30 seconds. let it stand 3-4 minutes to be sure the yeast is working. 

         Add the, water, oil and the sponge mix to the milk and yeast and mix on speed 4 for 5 seconds.

    Add 2 cups of flour and the salt and knead for 5 minutes on interval setting, adding the remaining flour slowly, or more water, until the dough begins to pull from the sides of the bowl.  The dough should be quite soft; firm enough to handle without sticking to the hands, but still very soft. Add the last of the flour slowly. Or, add water if necessary.

       Cover or place in a large, oiled bowl and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until tripled in size and bubbly. 

           Place the dough on floured baking paper or other surface and divide into 4 pieces, but do not punch down. Form in rectangles about 10” x 4”/25 x 10 cm in size and press down lightly with the fingers. Cover the dough and let rise for 90 minutes. The dough will rise only slightly.  

    The flour on the surface where the bread makes its final rise is what remains on the top of the loaf after baking. With practice you can adjust the amount to get a pleasing appearance. You can also form them into about 6 to 8 rolls. Preheat oven to 200°c7.  

    Heat bread mat (or tray with baking paper on) in the oven for about 15 minutes. (you may need 2 trays depending on size) Pick up the loaves (carefully), turn them over and lay them upside down on the tray being careful not to press out the air. Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes until bread just begins to turn golden. During the first 10 minutes, paint or spray the bread with water 3 times.
