My husbands favorite bread, never have i been able to master it, but this recipe works. A light fluffy buttery bread with a sweet aftertaste, perfect for both savory and sweet dishes.
250g Strong Flour (I used bread flour)
3 Tablespoons Castor Sugar
7g Dried Yeast (1 packet)
Put the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and rub in butter until it resembles bread crumbs. Stir in sugar and yeast. Add the eggs and mix till it forms a soft dough (i used my kitchenaid for this, with the dough hook) Cover the bow and chill for 20mins. Meanwhile grease a loaf tin with cooking spray. Knead the dough for a further 5mins until its smooth. Drop the dough into the loaf tin smooth side up and leave to rise in a warm place for 2hrs. Heat the oven to 180'c. Bake loaf for 25mins until golden and sounding hollow when you tap the base. Place on a wire rack to cool.
Note: to get that extra golden colour you can brush loaf with beaten egg yolk or milk before baking.
