Buttermilk Bread - my first attempt

This is my first attempt in making Buttermilk Bread.  The mixing and rising of the Bread dough was all done in the Bread Machine, then the dough was placed in a Bread tin and cooked in the oven.  Truly Delicious!!

Hi Sabinka that looks a jolly nice loaf to me, did you mould the shape  before putting in the tin? what recipe did you follow, and what flour did you use (of particular interest to fellow Aussies, your profile doesnt say which part of Australia you reside in.

Hello Yozza,


The Recipe was from "The Complete Book of Bread and Bread Machines" by Christine Ingram and Jennie Shapter. 


The tin I purchased from the Lauckle Mills in Strathalbyn.  Used "Wholemeal Spelt Flour" from Woolworths "Macro" brand and the Italian Bread Flour from Foodland.  Hope this answers all your questions.


Kind regards,


Sabina

Hi fellow Aussies,


I'm so pleased our recent international cricket ashes series was not a bread baking competition. Ha Ha


I use Laucke "wallaby Bakers flour" for all my needs in baking bread. It produces such great gluetens strands when it comes together.


My favourite breads to bake:- using a sandwich tin loaf pan I like to make sourdoughs with a starter based on the flour and pineapple juice method.


Ciabatta loaf the Italian slipper bread. I always pronounced it "KI-barta". I had an Italian lady in my taxi during the week. She makes bread at home but did not knowCiabatta till I spelt it for her. It is pronounced "keybater". Everdentily CI is prounced "ke" as in "key" in Italian. I have bad hearing so please I still stand to be corrected with no offence to our Italian friends out there.


Then recently I have started to bake baguettes. The result speak for itself when this recipe comes together. You can find the recipe I use here on the TFL site.

I am based in Cessnock NSW and it's great to find other Aussies with their ideas on this site.....love to hear back from you guys. Sibinka please share your buttermilk loaf recipe  with us as I would love to have a go at this loaf of bread. It looks so good. Like you I just use my bread machine for kneading and first rise then I take over the rest.


Cheers for now..............Pete

Buttermilk Bread


 


One and a quarter cups of Buttermilk


4 and half tablespoon Water


One and half tablespoon Honey


One and half tablespoon Oil  (I used 2 tablespoon melted Butter)


3 cups unbleached White Flour (I used Wholemeal Spelt Flour)


One cup Wholemeal Bread Flour (I used Italian Bread Flour)


One and half teaspoon Salt


One and half teaspoon Dried Yeast


 


Pour the Buttermilk, Water, Honey and Oil into the Bread machine pan.


Sprinkle over both the White and Wholemeal Flours, ensuring that the Water is completely covered.  Add the Salt and then the Yeast.  Just check if you need to add a bit more Water.


Set the Bread Machine on the setting for mixing and rising, which on my Machine was one and half hours.


Remove the dough, place in Bread tin.  Preheat oven to 375C and cook for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cooked.


Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.


 


Enjoy!
