Plain White Bread

Quite satisfiy with this shape of square white bread. With 90 minutes proofing sponge dough method of 孟老师的100道面包, I must say "worth it"! The crumb is soft but I've no idea how long it can stay soft as it's finished in two days.
Recipes: (A) 220g bread flour / 3g yeast / 130g water
(B) 60g bread flour / 15g sugar / 1/2 tsp salt / 10g milk /
powder / 40g water
(C) unsalted butter 15g
Method:
  1. Knead ingredients (A) together until it's well combine and become a dough ball. Let it sit in a clean bowl cover with cling wrap proof for 90 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Mix in the ingredients (B) to (A) and knead until a smooth dough then add butter.
  3. Continue to knead the dough until it's smooth and elastic. Proof for 60 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough in to 3 portions and rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Roll out each doughs into a longish shape and roll up like a swiss roll. Place the doughs in a grease bread tin cover with lid and proof for 50 - 60 minutes until the dough fill up 90% of the bread tin.
  6. Bake at 200'C for 30 minutes. Remove the bread from the bread tin and cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

I've been wanting to make white bread just like this but I can't find the pan for it. I believe it has a lid & is called pullman pan? Hope I'm right. Did you get yours in Singapore? Do you mind informing me where you bought it? Thanks!

Hi Li Shan,
Thanks for your lovely words. Hope you will like this recipe. Cheers!

Hi Sonia & Petite Nyonya,
I bought the pullman tin from Phoon Huat. If you can't get it immediately, bake the bread without a lid would be fine. I bet it's yummy too! Hope you will like the recipe.

Thank you so much for your reply. I just went to Phoon Huat (AMK branch) last night but I didn't see it. I didn't ask also which I should. Blurr!! hehe. I will try your recipe once I get the pan. It looks so nice...perfect square!

Wow, nice looking loaf...perfect! My loafs are usually a little loop sided or one side more toasted then the other. Great work Grace!

Hi Grace,
I tried this today. Baked for about 40mins but could not achieve a perfect square...sigh.
bread was very soft though.
How to get the perfect square. Should I let the dough rise till 100% with the lid on before it goes to the oven?
Sides were not totally brown despite 40mins baking.

Kitchen Corner said...

Hi blurbaker,
There are too many reasons for not getting the right bread, either not a perfect square or crack or wrong texture etc. I've been all these experiences and even sometimes I still will face all these problems. The weather, the yeast, the humidity, the wet ingredients and so on could cause a failure. Please do try again. I normally let the dough rise to 90% of the tin or if I forgot to set the time, it might be 100% full tin.
