White bread (Fri 05.02).

White bread made in an electric mixer. Long mixing times used compared to hand kneading, relative little yeast used.


  • 950 g white bread flour
  • 50 g fine ground rye flour
  • 600 g water
  • 20 g yeast
  • 18g salt
  • 40 g butter

1. Mix flour and water four 3 minutes on low speed. Leave to rest for 15 minutes (in the mixing bowl). Partly a autolyse phase (not too long).

2. Add the yeast and mix again for 3 minutes on low speed. After 3 minutes add the salt and the diced butter while the mixing continues. Mix for another 3 minutes. Finalize with 1 minute on high speed.

Turn out the dough on a floured work surface, form gently into a ball and leave to rise for half an hour.

3. Divide the dough in 2 equal parts. Form each into a ball and leave to rest for 15 minutes.

4. Form the  loaves again. Put on a floured baking tin seam side up. Leave to rise for 30 minutes.

5. Turn the loaves onto a greased or floured baking tin. Avoid deflating too much the dough. Leave to rise for a final 40 minutes.

6. Bake in a preheated oven at 220 C for about 35 minutes. Check if done by tapping underneath.

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
