- Ready In:
- 3hrs 40mins
- Mix together the warm water, yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 2 TABLESPOONS of flour in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes. (Unusual to put flour into proofing.).
- Warm milk, oil, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and salt in the microwave for about 20 seconds-stir together and set aside. Don't let the mixture boil, you just want to heat it up a bit.
- Sift 5 cups of flour into a large bowl.
- Once the milk mixture has cooled enough that you can comfortably stick a finger in it, mix it into the yeast.
- Add all wet ingredients to the flour.
- Mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. If sticky, add flour until you have a dough that you can knead.
- Dust your counter with flour and knead the dough until smooth, about 5-8 minutes. If the dough becomes sticky as you knead just sprinkle with flour as required. You may have to add up to a cup of flour at this stage depending on the humidity of your kitchen.
- Put in greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise until double in size.
- Punch down and knead for two or three minutes.
- Make into two large or six small round balls.
- Place on a greased pan-let rise again, bake at 400 F/205 C for 30-35 minutes until the tops brown and the bottom of a loaf, when tapped, sounds hollow.

I have followed this recipe for three times now and knowing how my hands drift and wonder I can never get stuff right. But with this recipe you can't go wrong. My creole bread always comes out perfect and since day one it was a hit. ???? Thank you so much. Now I can call myself a proud Belizean. This bread has been the hardest thing for me to make. But not now.
