Pain de mie (poolish, yogurt)

We love pain de mie a lot, the kids specially.  Yogurt makes the bread even better as the second part of liquid after the poolish is added!

Autolyse 30 mins.  2, add in salt, knead 1-2 mins.  Then, yeast.  Knead until the dough is nice and smooth, tacky but not sticky.        Then, toss in butter.  3, keep kneading the dough until pass the windowpane test. First fermentation: one hour until it gets doubles in size.second fermentation: degas the dough and flip it over for another 30 mins Then, divide, shape and rest the dough as the procedures as the way of making pain de mie.

Beautiful! Poolish, and yogurt.. can't be beat. I have baked hamelman's pain de mie, which is a straight dough with no preferments and the kids loved it.

Before I made them with the straight dough, however I like the bread keeping the freshness on my counter (at least 3 days fresh as the first day)... So, i never go back to the straight dough, any more ~ :p

Love your sandwich loaves and the crust is so evenly coloured.  May I please ask if your you need to add more liquids to the poolish version if not using yogurt?  I'd like to try both.  Many thanks.

thank you  Judy for the lovely comments^^~

I almost use the same amount of the liquid, like water/milk/spinach purée ... Instead of yogurt... However the density between many kinds of liquid are slightly different.  So, you need to feel the dough and add the liquid gradually^^~

I made a mistake when reading your recipe and thought you used water and yogurt for the main dough but now I can see that you only used yogurt for the liquid part so I will adjust accordingly.  You loaf pan is quite large so I may have to half your recipe.  I recently made a loaf using 60 grms of starter with cream, milk and water but would like to use yogurt as it's less fattening.
