How to make Bread

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups wheat flour adicional un poco más para espolvorear.
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Dry yeast
  • 1 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 Cup warm water
  • Vegetal oil
  • 1 Teaspoons Salt dissolved in two tablespoons of water.

   

Preparación

  • Sift the flour, place it in a bowl, make a volcano and place the yeast in its center. Cover. Add salt, butter and water.
  • Mix all the ingredients until they are well integrated. Then work it with your hands until it separates from the walls of the container.
  • On a surface sprinkled with a little flour, knead for about 10 minutes until homogenized and becomes elastic.
  • Make a ball and place it in a container anointed with oil; cover it with a damp cloth. Let it leaven for about two hours in a warm place. Until it doubles in volume
  • Grease a bread pan with oil. We suggest 19 x12x9 cm. Squeeze the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes. Give it the shape of a rectangle, with the same width of the mould. Fold it in three parts, place it inside the mold, with the doubles down.
  • Cover the mold with a damp cloth and let it leaven in a warm place, until it rises to the edge of it.
  • Paint it with salt dissolved in water.
  • Bake for 40 minutes at 230 degrees Celsius.
  • The surface of the bread is going to brown and will sound hollow when you tap it. Let it cool on a grill.
