Pain de mie

Last weekend I was a bit sick and I was not really in a mood of cooking, not even bread so very soon I was out of bread. During the weekdays I can only cook quick breads, so I decided to go again for a yeast one. I have picked a soft bread that it is baked in tins, but very popular, "pain de mie". I do not have specialized tins for this kind of breads so I have used cake tins and I was very satisfied with the results. The recipe was inspired from a book that is focusing on making bread with a machine. Of course I didn't use the machine but I have used the recipe. Here it is.

  • 480ml water
  • 60ml milk
  • 900g bread flour
  • 5 teaspoons of dried yeast (16g)
  • 3 teaspoons salt (20g)
  • 30g butter (melted)
  • 20g sugar
  • the juice of a half lemon

  1. Mix all ingredients with a standing mixer.
  2. Cover the bowl and place it in the warmest place in the house for 2h.
  3. Preshape 3 breads and lay them in tins
  4. Let them raise again for another 1h30 minutes.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven at 180ºC for 1h.

This recipe was inspired from Pain maison : Spécial machine à pain- Cathy Ytak, page 27.
