WHITE BREAD IN THE BREAD MACHINE

(Russel Hobbs) Please note this is how I make my bread. Flop proof.

  • 4 ⅔ cup white cake flour which I whisked a few times to get air in the flour
  • 400 ml water exactly
  • 2 ½ tablespoons margarine  (I use Stork Bake)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 ⅓ teaspoon of yeast  (I use the purple packet)

Use your machine measuring utensils if you don’t have other and measure off EXACTLY,  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT or the bread may flop.
This bread ingredients is set to use the setting 1.125 kg bread.
Pour water first into bread mixer.
Add the margarine.
Then add the flour. Spread flour out across the bread mixer but don’t mix with the water.
Add salt.
Add sugar and last add the yeast.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Do not mix anything. The idea is to keep your water and yeast apart for excellent baking.
Place the bread mixer in the machine.
Set your machine to Basic programme 1.
This bakes for 3 hrs 30 min
Set your colour of the bread.
Dark makes the bread with a well baked crust.  Best option.
Close lid and press start.
Do NOT OPEN the lid while baking.
When the cycle is finished, the machine will peep.
Remove bread immediately or it creates steam and the bread is soggy and crust will be soft.
