Spicy pull apart wheat bread
April 13, 2017
For the flavouring
1I've tried this recipe using plain wheat flour and bread flour. Bread flour gives a softer texture than plain wheat flour. I've doubled the quantity of ingredients and baked a pull apart bread and a simple loaf using the same dough .
2In a bowl, mix flour, milk powder, fresh cream,instant dry yeast, sugar ,salt and egg .
4Add warm milk.
5Knead well for 2-3 mins.
6Add rest of the milk.
7Dough will be sticky.Knead for 7-8 mins.
8Apply oil on the dough and place it in a well oiled bowl for first rise. Cover it with cling film.
9Let the dough double in volume.
10Punch down the dough gently. Knead it for a minute or two .
11Divide the dough into two parts.
12Add the flavoured oil . Keep a tbsp of oil aside.
13Roll it into a rectangle.
14Shape it into a log.
15Slice into 12-15 pieces.Arrange it in a oiled bread tin . Keep it for the second rise. Cover it with cling.Meanwhile Preheat the oven at 180 degree C with top and bottom rods on. The dough should rise 1" below the rim of the loaf tin .
16Now apply the flavoured oil using a brush and cover the loaf tin with aluminium foil. Make a tent with aluminium foil . Place it in the oven and let it bake for 25 mins. Now take the tin out , remove the aluminium foil and apply salted butter or egg wash it.
17Keep it back in the oven and bake for 3-4 mins until the crust is golden brown in colour.
18Remove from the oven and apply salted butter liberally.
