OMG! I forgot to post this bread .... just looked through my posts and realized that there's no English Bread.
This bread was recommended by my friend (P' Mon-Cooking and Baking with MaeJJ Blog) and I baked it at her house. She got the recipe from Happy Home Baking but modified in her version by using oil not butter. This recipe was a hit in one baking forum which she posted. I found it was great for making sandwich with this kind of bread.
The time I baked, we agreed to put ATTA flour half in the recipe so this English Bread was more healthier. I never heard of ATTA flour before and she recommended me it's one kind of bread flour which good to make naan or pita bread. Once I saw the texture of the bread I liked it a lot so before I went back home she gave me a packet of ATTA flour for sample and she guaranteed that I will like to use ATTA flour for my next bread baking.
Bread Flour 150 g.
ATTA flour 150 g. (you can use all bread flour)
Instant dry yeast 1 tsp.
Sugar 1 tbsp.
Salt 1 tsp.
Milk 30 ml.
Lukewarm water 180 ml.
Canola oil 10 g.
(Bread Machine Method)
1. Put all the ingredients into the bread maker and set dough program.
2. Bring the dough out and punch down to release the air then divide 2 portions and shape in round balls. Put the doughs in the greased loaf pan cover with damn cloth and let it rise to double in size around 40-60 mins
3. Bake in preheat oven 170-180C for about 20 mins
****Remarks: if using stand mixer, put all the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl then pour wet ingredients and knead with dough hook till the dough is formed and add canola oil knead till the dough is smooth and elastic. Shape the dough to the round ball and put in grease bowl covered with damn cloth. Let it rise for 40-60 mins then continue the process 2 as above.
