Steps to prepare Honey and Milk Bread
- In a large bowl add lukewarm milk, sugar and sprinkle a package of active dry yeast into it. Cover, and let the yeast activate. This will take approximately 10 minutes.
- Add milk powder, melted butter, honey, salt and mix well.
- Now add the all purpose flour / maida little by little and mix it using wooden spoon or spatula till it comes together. The amount of flour required depends on the weather.
- Dust the working surface. Transfer the flour mixture and knead it for atleast 6 to 8 minutes till you get soft, elastic dough.
- Transfer the dough to bowl coated with olive oil. Cover and keep it in warm place for about 1 hour or until it is doubled.
- Roll the bread to a log, place it in greased loaf pan and allow it to rise for another 30 to 40 minutes.
- Preheat the oven at 375 degree F. To give an artisan look to the bread, make slits using a sharp knife or a blade, and dust the tops with some flour before baking.
- Bake for about 40 to 50 minutes or until done. (Till you get hollow sound when tapping the bread)
- Allow it to cool down completely even before slicing.
- Honey and Milk Bread is ready. Serve and enjoy.
- The amount of flour in the dough may vary depending on the weather conditions and brand of flour used. However see that you do not add more flour than required as this may make your bread very dry and dense.
