Milk bread

I was craving for some white, fluffy and tasty bread, so I searched for a recipe with milk in my cookbooks

  • 420ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 20g butter
  • 700g bread flour
  • 4 teaspoons of dried yeast
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • (for decoration) 1 egg
  • (for decoration) sunflower seeds
  1. Put all the ingredients in the listed order.
  2. Program the bread machine to make the dough. Mine takes 90 min to mix it and raise it.
  3. Take out the dough and split it in 4 (2 for each bread).
  4. Form 4 long rolls and twist by 2.
  5. Put the 2 breads in 2 non-sticky pans.
  6. Beat the egg and brush each bread with it, then sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top.
  7. Put them in the oven to raise again for 45 min at 50ºC.
  8. Increase the heat to 180ºC and keep them for another 30 min.
Was it good? There is no need to tell you. Take a look at my daughter tasting a stolen slice:

No chance to take it back and to convince her later to eat her lunch :D
