White Bread Loaf

By Fredrica Syren

Despite the heat,  I’ve loved the cool mornings along with a cup of tea and a piece of toast made from this fun bread. It is so easy to make and looks so pretty fresh out of the oven. I love a loaf you can slice and toast. I try to bake most of our bread because it saves money, taste better and does not take as long as you might think.

Ingredients:

½ package active dry yeast

3 cups white spelt flour or all-pupose flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1 ½ cups warm water

1 tbsp. olive oil

Sesame seeds for decoration

Milk, enough to brush dough

Combine yeast, salt, sugar and flour in a large bowl or KitchenAid. Mix water and oil, and add to flour mixture. Really work the dough well until it lets go of the bowl. Add more flour if dough still feels sticky. Sprinkle some flour on top and cover bowl with a towel. Leave in a warm,draft free place to rise for 30 minutes.

Knead dough for a few minutes on a surface sprinkled with some flour. Shape dough into a loaf and place in a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Cover with a towel and allow to rise for another 30 minutes. Preheat oven to F 450. Brush the loaf with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds over it. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until loaf is golden brown and seems hollow.

Let it cool off before slicing.
