RAISIN BREAD

Photobucket

Since my previous attempts of making bread are successful, today I'd love to share with you another favorite recipe, raisin bread. Used to buy them from the bakery but now trying to bake it myself.

Baking bread is so exciting, such a challenging and rewarding task and you'll be proud of yourselves once you've baked them.

This is quite simple and the result is very satisfying, full of flavor and has great texture. It is really worth baking.

Soak the raisin for 30 minutes then drain before adding to the dough but some recipes called for adding the raisin directly without soaking, may be I'll try this method next time.

RAISIN BREAD
1 C warm milk
4 T olive oil /butter softened
1/2 tsp salt
3 C all purpose flour
3 T sugar
2 and 1/2 tsp dry yeast
3 T warm water
3/4 C raisin soak in hot water

METHOD

* Soak raisin in hot water for at least 30 minutes.

* In a small bowl, combine warm water, dry yeast and a tablespoon sugar, let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy.

* Place flour, balance of sugar, salt, oil/butter and yeast mixture in a mixing bowl. Gradually add warm milk until a pliable dough is formed. Knead by hand for 10 minutes or use your stand mixer.

* Cover and let rise in a oiled bowl for 2 hours or until double in size.

* Punch out the air, add the drained raisin and knead until raisin is well mixed.

* Shape into rectangle then fold into 3, place dough into greased loaf pan, seam side down, keep for 45 minutes. Towards the end of raising time, preheat oven at 180 C.

* Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool on pan 10 minutes. Transfer onto wire rack to cool.

* Slice to serve.
