There is nothing more satisfying for me than making a successful batch of bread. Once you start to get the feel of making bread, you are addicted.
If you are new to bread-making, this is really good recipe to start with. It produces beautiful and fluffy bread though it takes more than 3 hours to bake them.
If you want to use active dry yeast increase the amount to 1 1/4 teaspoon and mix the yeast with 1/3 cup of warm water. Let it proof for 5-10 minutes before you add it to the flour.
GOLDEN PULL APART BUTTER BUN
Adapted from King Arthur Flour
1 and 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp instant yeast
1 and 1/2 tablespoon dry milk (milk powder)
2 tablespoon soft butter
1/4 cup warm milk
1/3 cup warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1-2 tablespoon all purpose flour if needed
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix and knead using hand, stand mixer of bread maker, to make a soft and smooth dough. If too sticky add 1-2 TB of flour.
Transfer onto floured board, knead for 10 minutes. Place onto greased and covered bowl, let rise until doubled for 1-1 and 1/2 hours.
Gently deflate the dough, divide into 8. Round each piece into smooth ball.
Place balls into greased 8 in round pan. Cover and let rise 60-90 minutes until puffy. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 180 C.
Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.
Cool on rack.
