Raisins Bread Loaf


This is my first encounter with Bread making and i am so happy that it came out really well.



Ingredients
All purpose flour/ Maida-4cups
Warm Milk-1 1/2 cups
Eggs-2
Active Dry Yeast-2tbsp
Sugar-2tbsp
Salt-1tsp
Raisins-1cup
Butter-2tbsp (melted)

Method
Take a medium bowl add yeast, warm milk and sugar. Allow the yeast to raise for 15mins. In a large bowl add the flour, raisins and salt. When the yeast has raised, add the melted butter, beat the 2 eggs and add to the milk mixture. Now add the milk mixture to the flour and knead for atleast 10 mins to get a very soft and smooth dough. Place the dough in the same large bowl, apply some more butter on the upper surface and cover with the wet cloth. Rest the dough aside for 2 hours or until the dough doubles in its size. When the dough doubles in the size, punch the dough on the upper surface so the air inside the dough escapes. Once again knead the dough and set side for 10 mins. After 10 mins place the raised dough in the loaf pan, cover with wet cloth and set aside for 30 mins. Preheat the oven for 425F/220C. In a small bowl beat a egg with water for egg wash and brush the loaf with egg wash. Bake the loaf in the oven at 425F/220C for 15-20mins till golden color. Once done remove from the oven and apply butter on top.

Mythreyi the bread appears to be soft and delicious...

I have never tried making bread in the house.

For me the shop-made one will be better as I do not have an oven :(

I will try this later when I have one or when I am back home.
