The base for this recipe was originally from Allrecipes but I've changed the recipe to suit my breadmaker and taste. When I made my first loaf of this I couldn't believe I had made something that looked and tasted like a commercially produced loaf. NOTE: My ABM is older and takes 2 1/2 hours to do a dough cycle. The times include rising time also.
- 2 teaspoons yeast (bread machine yeast)
- 3 1⁄4 cups flour
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons gluten flour
- 1 1⁄3 teaspoons salt
- 1 1⁄3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1⁄3 cups water (luke warm)
- Place the ingredients into your ABM in the order specified for your machine. Set it on the dough cycle.
- When the dough cycle has beeped, LEAVE the dough in the machine for another 30 minutes. It will continue to rise again.
- Preheat your oven to 190°C Grease a 9x5x3 loaf pan with butter.
- Tip out your dough onto a lightly floured work area and roll into a long rectangle, making sure the width is no wider than 9 inches and about 1/2 inch thick. It doesn't matter about the length. You will hear all the air bubbles popping as you roll.
- Once the air bubbles are gone, roll up, starting from one of the short ends. You may want to moisten the end of the dough to help seal it together.
- Place roll of dough, seam side down, tucking ends under, in your loaf pan.
- Leave to rise until doubled in size, approximately 30-40mins. Brush with melted butter.
- Bake 190C for 30 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped with the handle of a knife.
- While loaf is hot brush with melted butter.
- Remove loaf from pan onto a cooling rack.
My results were great. . . gluten is not available here in Mexico so had to trust that the flour had enough. I did add 1/4 cup of sun dried tomatoes and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and it was very tasty. Thanks for sharing.
