Instructions
  1. take a small bowl, add about 1/4 cup of the liquid which must be warm add yeast and sugar or brown sugar to the warm liquid allow it to activate , even if using instant yeast , i like to make sure it is good,
  2. meanwhile take another bowl add the flours, salt and mix well add the activated liquid with remaining liquid ( milk or water ) balance from 190 ml .
  3. take a spatula and mix well before kneading , as the dry ingredients must get moistened Now take this rough dough mixture to a work surface , knead the dough which will be little sticky
  4. flatten the dough in a square shape on the work surface, add in oil or butter as the case may be to the centre of the square flattened dough , cover up into a ball like with the butter or oil in centre, , knead again , gently stretch dough in up and down motion , knead for at least 5-6 minutes
  5. add oil to hands if sticky but do not add any flour,take the dough and slap against the work surface few times,just keep banging up and down few times , this really helps , notice the dough becoming much smoother, non sticky , coming together.
  6. when you are able to make a smooth taut ball by cupping the dough with your hands and bringing towards you on the work surface , , it is ready . the dough will no longer stick but will be elastic and smooth put it back in a greased bowl, cover and allow to proof till doubles, may take an hour .
  7. after an hour, the dough would have doubled, take it to a counter, divide into two and roll into two small balls ( you can choose to bake as a single bread if you have a bigger pan ) again smooth out the two balls of dough to make sure it is smooth and taut exterior , now cover both the balls for 15 minutes to relax .
  8. after 15 minutes, take out each ball, and measure and shape according to your bread tin like a rectangle, at this point if you wish to make this bread into a garlic pull apart bread style, just spread a mixture of soft butter, minced garlic, chopped coriander leaves, some grated cheese ,pinch of salt, oregano and some chili flakes , spread this mixture all over uniformly, then begin the rolling process. roll up from top to bottom , horizontal wise, like a log, pinch both ends, and the seams at bottom
  9. now with a knife or a scraper, slice the prepared log at equal intervals Prepare the other ball of dough likewise . gently lift off the sliced log of dough into a prepared bread pan for second proofing for about 30 minutes .
  10. preheat oven and bake the bread after brushing the tops gently with milk , at 180 C for 25 minutes or till done, the top will brown well, you can keep a aluminium foil on top to prevent over browning .
  11. remove the bread tins from the oven , and allow to cool on a rack after removing bread from the pan . brush with melted butter on tops, and cover with a lightly moist cloth for 5 minutes, this keeps the bread soft
  12. tear off the required bread at sections . no need to slice as we have already sliced before baking . These breads are good for making garlic bread slices also
