Sandwich bread… (eggless & dairy-free)

By shanobiju  

July 12, 2016

This sandwich bread has perfect crumb and texture .It is soft and light .
Also it is eggless and dairy - free ..

  • Prep: 1 hr 30 mins
  • Cook: 35 mins

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups All purpose flour

1 1/8 tsp Instant dry yeast

1 tbsp Sugar

1/2 tsp Salt

2 tbsp Oil

1 cup Warm water

Directions

1In a bowl ,mix flour ,yeast ,sugar and salt .

2Mix it well .

3Add warm water and knead for 6-7 minutes .

4Add oil and knead for 3-4 minutes .

5Shape it into a ball . Apply oil and transfer it into a well oiled bowl . Cover it with cling film and wait for the first rise .

6Let it double in size .

7Gently punch down the dough and knead it for a minute or two .

8Using a rolling pin , roll it into rectangle shape and roll the dough tightly into log shape .

9Transfer it into a loaf tin . Cover it with cling film and wait for the second rise . Let it rise . I used 8"x 3.5" loaf tin .

10Meanwhile pre heat the oven at 180 degree C for 10 -12 minutes . Apply water on the risen dough using a brush and cover the tin with aluminum foil .

11Place the tin on the bottom rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes , Now take the tin out , remove the aluminum foil and apply butter /milk /eggwash it . Place it back in the oven ( without the aluminum foil) and bake it for another 5-6 minutes until the top is evenly brown in colour .

12Transfer it to a wire rack and apply butter or oil with a brush . Allow it to cool at least for 2-3 hrs before slicing .

Jyothi..make a tent with aluminium foil.Fasten the sides with binder clips if required.

Shano Biju

This is plain sandwich bread..not much flavour.You can try milk bread recipe for more Indian taste..

Hi Shano,
I baked this bread and it came out really well except that the top layer got stuck to the foil, is there anything that I can do avoid that?. Please advise.
Thank you,
Jyothi.

Does this bread tastes like the one we get in India? I’m in USA and most of the white breads we get here are different and tastes also different when it comes to making sandwiches, bread rolls and bread pakoras. I miss that Indian tasteπŸ™

Balapriya..I find the bread slightly dry if I don’t cover it with aluminium foil..😊

Hi dear in convection microwave we can’t use aluminum foil. Is it compulsory to cover with foil?

Shano Biju

May 17, 2017

Kiran ..apply salted butter or eggwash the top..Turn on the top rod or the fan mode..
Increase the temperature a bit ..

Shano Biju

May 17, 2017

Brinda ..Thankyou so much for kind words..
Apply salted butter and turn on the top rod for browning..
You can increase the temperature a bit..
Do not stretch the dough too much while shaping and folding..

Hello Maam,

Maam I tried the recipe, but the top crust didn’t come out as brownish colour, it was white. That’s why I baked it for around 10 mins after removing the aluminium foil but the same white crust was there. I can’t figure out where I did the mistake. Please help me out Maam .

Summaiya

May 11, 2017

I will surely try it.

Hi Shano mam…I love the way you have put the recipe. It’s so simple to do and I baked my 1st bread today…loved the rise that I got. However the top didn’t brown well. And it kinda cracked too on the top. I followed the recipe to the T. Can you pls help me with what could be the reason. I baked in a microwave convection.

Shano Biju

April 20, 2017

Hello Maam,

Shano Biju

April 13, 2017

You can use same quantity of yeast..Proof it separately..Adjust the quantity of liquid..

Shano Biju

April 13, 2017

One cup flour is 125 gms..I use 200 ml standard measuring cup..

Shano Biju

April 13, 2017

Reduce the temperature a bit next time..
Over kneading can also make the bread dense..

Tanuka

April 9, 2017

Thanks a lot for your recipe. What would be the flour measurement in gms ? Also if I want to substitute instant yeast by active dry yeast , should I use the same quantity ?

Monalisa

April 2, 2017

Hi, i tried the sandwich bread, it turned out good, was soft but a bit dense.. What could have been the reason ???

Shano Biju

March 27, 2017

Shubh..the dough should double in volume for the first rise..for the second rise..the dough should reach 1″ below the rim of the
loaf tin..

shubh

March 23, 2017

Thanks for the recipe. How long do we have to keep the dough for each rise?

Shano Biju

March 6, 2017

Nusrat ..few points to be noted..
Over kneading will make the bread dense.
Right temperature while baking..I bake at 180 degree C
Cover the baking tin with aluminium foil while baking.
Eggwash / apply salted butter for evenly brown crust.Bake it in fan mode..

Nusrat Abbasi

I have tried a number of bread recipes but I could never get the soft, fluffy crust (you know the one that kind of peels off) that is there on the breads that come from the market. What is the secret of that kind of crust? I use a professional stone base oven.

Shano Biju

February 28, 2017

Sorry Farah..I have no idea..I’ve never tried yeast free bread..

Shano Biju

February 28, 2017

It depends..it should be double in volume..

Farah

February 23, 2017

Just the perfect eggless and dairy free recipe I was looking for
But unfortunately I am not allowed to have yeast also

Any suggestions?

No dear..the bread will be dense if you substitute Apf with wheat flour..
For eggless wheat bread..follow the wheat bread recipe which I’ve posted..instead of egg , add 3-4 tbsp of extra milk..

Hi Shanobiju,

Just wanted to confirm whether I can add 2 cups maida and 1/2 cup wheat flour. ( I have only 2 cups maida with me right now;)) Will I have to make any changes in yeast measurements? Thanks in advance. Btw, I made your eggless pav buns yesterday and it came quite well. Though there is scope for further
improvement. Thanks a lot.
