Ingredients

125 ml warm Milk, 125 ml lukewarm Water, 3 tbsp Sugar400 gr Bread flour, 25 gr melted Butter+extra for brushing1½ tsp Salt, 1 tbsp Neutral oil+extra, 2 tsp Instant yeast

 

Directions

Mix the yeast with water; set aside. Put the flour, salt & sugar in a big bowl: combine it well. Add in the oil & melted butter; stir to combine. Then add in the yeast mixture & milk. Using a spatula, mix until it well combined. Knead it with a stand mixer until it’s elastic ~ 10 min. Or knead it by hands for ~ 12 minutes. Round the dough & then put it in a lightly greased bowl & cover with a plastic wrap/towel. Put the bowl in the oven middle rack. Place a pan filled with boiling water on the oven bottom rack. Close the door & let the dough stay inside until it double in size (~ 1 hour).Grease the loaf pan generously; set aside. Remove dough bowl from the box; press the dough down to degas it. Put it in a working surface. Flatten a bit into a rectangle & then fold the dough like folding an envelope. Roll dough into a log. Seal the edges by pinching it a bit & put it on the pan, seam side down. Stretch & press the dough lightly until it fits neatly on the loaf pan. Lightly grease a plastic wrap. Cover the pan loosely with the plastic & then put it in the oven middle rack. Place another pan filled with boiling water underneath. Let it proof in the oven for 35-40 minutes.Remove the dough cover. Turn on the oven upper & bottom heat, set the temperature to 180° C. Bake for ~ 50 minutes. Baking the bread starting from cold oven will allow the bread to rise higher. When the dough top becomes too brown (after ~ 25 min of baking), cover the dough with aluminium foil. Remove the pan from oven & put it in a warm place for 10 min. Remove the bread from pan & put it in a wire rack. Brush the bread surface with butter while it is still hot. Let it cool down before you slice.You could eat the bread with jam or meat, or eat it with soup.
