Very soft white bread-maybe even fluffy!
My forte has been whole wheat bread but my husband loves fluffy,white bread and I have been working on it. I may have finally figured it out. Try it out and see what you think. It's done by volume measure rather than weight but it was my first attempt. Refinements will come.I based this on a Wonder Bread Clone recipe,recent experience and sourdough.
Soft White Bread
2 1/3 c Better for Bread flour
2/3 c soft whole wheat pastry flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp instant yeast
Mix all dry ingredients together then add liquid ingredients
2 tsp liquid lecithin
3 tbsp soft butter
1 egg,room temp
1/2 c active starter (100% by weight)
1/2 c warm milk
1/4 c warm water
Mix well-I used a K5 mixer
Place in oiled container and rise til double
Stretch and fold, rather than punch down, and shape into a loaf
Place in a well-oiled loaf pan (prefereably using a baking spray or brush applied product that has lecithin in it.) This dough tends to stick!
Rise til just 1 inch above the edge of the pan.Slash.
Bake in a preheated 375F oven about 30-40 min.
This loaf had terrific oven spring! It looks just like the picture of the Semolina Sandwich Loaf on the right side of the screen! The loaf is very soft now that it hass cooled and the crumb is very tender.I think the pastry flour really made a diiference.
So try it out and let me know what you think. It will be on the lunch menu tomorrow so I'll see how the fluffy half likes it.
