Recipe for a Basic White Large Loaf
Several readers have asked for the recipe that I use for baking a white loaf. I have included this below, but please remember that it is for the Panasonic bread maker, although I am told that it will be fine to use in other bread makers. I use the measuring scoop that came with the unit, but have converted the quantities to teaspoons and tablespoons. It is just a basic white loaf, nothing fancy.
(Put into baking tin in this order)
Yeast - 1 teaspoonful
Strong/white flour - 500 grammes
Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Milk powder - 2 tablespoons
Virgin Olive Oil - 2 tablespoons
Water (tepid) - 350 ml
Set the bread maker for a large loaf. It takes 4 hours to bake.
I have found that success depends upon the freshness of the flour and yeast, as well as the temperature of the water - especially in the Canary Islands!
