  • Prepare all the necessary ingredients, carefully weigh them, bring them to room temperature, and line them up in the order of the recipe.
  • Mix the prepared “Bread Mix” together with the baking powder. If using fresh yeast, dissolve it in half a glass of warm water, add a little sugar and add everything to the preparation (the yeast should not come into direct contact with the sugar until completely dissolved!).
  • Stir in remaining ingredients. Work it all for 5 minutes until dough is smooth (also using an electric mixer).
  • Put the dough into a greased and floured tin and level the surface with the help of a spoon or a wet water scoop.
  • Cover with a tea towel or plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place until it has doubled in volume (about 30 min.).
  • If room temperature is not enough, put the dough in the oven at 40° C until it rises.
  • Pour water into a pan and place on the bottom of the oven, turn the heat up to 200° C and bake the bread.
  • To get a nice golden brown, you can brush the surface with water or an egg beaten with a little milk.
  • After 10 minutes, lower the temperature to 180° C and bake for about 40 minutes.
  • The bread is baked to perfection when, sticking a toothpick into it, the dough does not stick to it.
  • Cool the bread on a rack. If it is stuck to the tin, allow it to cool in the tin upside down and covered with a damp cloth.
