Wheat Loaf

After explored some recipes of water roux dough, I'm quite miss the 孟老师的100道面包. So, I choose to make this wheat bread after flipped on the recipe book. I followed the recipe except adding ground almond into the dough. Anyway it still turn out quite nice. I think the Parmesan makes the bread very tasty which the bit of saltiness and the smell of wheat that is so nice to serve with a bowl of creamy soup or sandwich or even have it straight.
  1. Mix all the ingredients except butter at low speed using a dough hook mixer, then turn to medium speed until it become a smooth dough. Add in the unsalted butter and knead with low speed until the butter combine with the dough. Turn to medium speed continue the kneading process until it become a smooth and elastic dough. Place the dough into a big bowl and cover with cling wrap to proof for 80 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough to 2 portions and round them into small balls. Let it rest for about 10 minutes. Roll out each doughs into a longish shape about 35cm and roll in into a sausage shape.
  3. Cut 12 portions at each rolls but not cut through and pull each one of the cut dough to the left and another to the right alternately. Proof for 30 minutes. Egg wash the doughs and sprinkle some sesame seeds.
  4. Bake at 180'C preheated oven for 18 minutes until golden brown.

Hi quizzine,
This wheat loaf not as good as baguette. It's another kind of texture which is slightly crisp and much softiness.
