Need a good bread recipe
    #4221494 - 05/26/05 07:08 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I've just started gettin into baking. Unfortunately the white bread I made was kinda bland and didn't taste like much of anything.

Anybody have a dough recipe to share?

It's no secret that I love making bread. The following are a few of my favorite recipes. I've got hundreds. Let's start w/ the basics....

-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-
Basic Bread Dough

1/2 cup warm water
3 teaspoons dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
4 cups high gluten flour
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


Place warm water in a warm mixing bowl and add yeast. Stir to dissolve and let stand 3 minutes. Add salt and sugar and stir through. Add flour and olive oil and mix, using hands until you can knead the dough without it sticking to your fingers. Add more water, if needed.
Wash and dry hands and remove ball to cutting board. Knead the dough, occasionally dusting with 1 teaspoon flour, until a firm, smooth homogenous ball is formed, about 15 minutes. Place ball of dough in a lightly oiled mixing bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place until its size is doubled, about 2 hours. Punch down and divide into 2 pieces.

Dough is now ready for use.

Portuguese Sweet Bread

3 yeast cakes
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups warm, nonfat milk (or scalded whole milk slightly cooled)
5 pounds flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 dozen fresh eggs, room temperature
3 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 pound butter, melted
2 tablespoons salt
1 egg, beaten

Dissolve 3 yeast cakes in 1/2 cup warm water, (not hot). Add 2 cups warm, nonfat milk (or scalded whole milk slightly cooled) and 3 cups flour, and 1 teaspoon salt. Whisk together and set aside to proof yeast.
In a separate bowl, add 1dozen fresh eggs, sugar, and lemon juice. Beat well and then add melted butter.

Add yeast mixture, the remaining flour and 2 tablespoons of salt. Mix well and let rest for 10 to 20 minutes.

Continue mixing until dough begins to pull away from bowl or knead with greased hands until dough pulls away from your hands. This takes a while and the dough is sticky unlike bread dough. Place in greased bowl and cover to let rise to double, about 1 to 3 hours.

Punch down, turn over, and let rise to double a second time.

Carefully break away about 2/3 pound of dough at a time, rolling dough into a nice loaf shape and place into greased loaf pans. This should make about 5 to 7 nice loafs. Let rise until double in the pans for a third rising.

Make two to three 1/4-inch slits on the top of each loaf and then brush tops with 1 beaten egg mixed with 1 tablespoon of water.

Bake at 325 degrees F for about 10 minutes and then reduce heat to about 300 degrees F for another 25 to 30 minutes.

Remove loaves from the oven and lay them on their side on a rack for a couple of minutes before removing from the pan.

Olive Bread

1 cup black olives, chopped fine
2 tablespoons finely-chopped shallots
1 tablespoon finely-chopped garlic
1 tablespoon finely-chopped rosemary
1 pound white bread dough, proofed once
1 tablespoon cornmeal
4 tablespoons sundried tomato paste
2 4-ounce pieces beef tenderloin, cooked, cooled and sliced
2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl combine olives, shallots, garlic and rosemary. On a floured surface press out dough to a rectangle, 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle olive mixture onto surface of dough. Fold sides in to hold mixture. Beginning with end nearest you, roll dough up tightly. Transfer carefully to a cornmeal-dusted baking sheet. Cover and set aside in a warm place until it doubles in size, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Bake until bread is deep golden brown and an instant-reading thermometer inserted in bread registers 190 degrees. Let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
For each sandwich, spread 2 bread slices with sundried tomato paste, top with beef slices and sprinkle with feta. Serve garnished with some whole olives.

What about the baking directions, how hot and for how long in the Oven?

Just a side note on baking. In a regular home oven, if you open it while it is baking, the temperature will drop significantly. Bread and quick breads don't like temp changes and they will cave in the middle sometimes. So try to keep the oven closed the whole time, if possible. Also,if you really want to bake a lot, it is a good idea to test the accuracy of your oven. I found that mine was a full 30-40 degrees off. In most baking this doesn't make a huge difference, except you can just add on a few more minutes or just crank the temp up more.

Sammy- Have you used bread sponges in breads? I worked at Great Harvest Bread for several years and that's how they do all of their breads. I find it adds a lot of flavor.

Peace

Beer Bread

3 cups flour; all purpose or self-rising (If using self-rising flour be sure to omit the 2 ingredients where noted)
3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
? cup sugar
1 (12 ounces) can beer
1/4 cup melted butter

6-8 servings | 1 hour 3 minutes | 3 mins prep

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Mix dry ingredients and beer.
3. Pour into a greased loaf pan.
4. Pour melted butter over mixture.
5. Place loaf pan on a shallow baking pan or cookie sheet (in case butter overflows)
6. Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.

***Variation***
During step 2 for a different flavor: Add 1 to 1 ? cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan or any combination of those) , 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and 2-4 tablespoons of water. This variation goes well with Italian food. This is usually the only way we make this bread!
