Quick bread recipe: warm and tasty, it’s very good


Ingredient Quantity
Dried yeast 7 grams (2 1/4 tablespoons)
Milk 50 milliliters (3 1/2 tablespoons)
Hot water 250 milliliters (1 cup + 2 teaspoons)
Sugar 6 grams (1 3/4 tablespoons)
All-purpose flour 350 grams (2 3/4 cups)
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
Room-temperature butter 15 grams (1 tablespoon)
Activate the yeast: Combine lukewarm water, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Stir well and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until the yeast becomes foamy.

Mix the dough: Add milk to the yeast mixture and stir to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Knead the dough: Add melted butter and knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 3-4 minutes until smooth and elastic. You can add a bit more flour if the dough feels too sticky.

First rise: Form the dough into a ball, place it in a greased bowl, and cover it with a tea towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Shape and second rise: Divide the dough into four equal portions and roll each one into a ball. Place the dough balls in greased loaf pans. Cover the pans and let them rise again in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Bake: Preheat oven to 190°C (374°F). Place a pan of water at the bottom of the oven to create steam. Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Enjoy! Let the bread cool slightly before slicing and serving.
