  • 3 cups flour (375g) + 1/4 cup more for rolling
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk (60 ml)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  1. In a large bowl, mix together warm water, yeast, and sugar. Pour in milk and melted butter. Whisk to combine. Add the flour and salt and mix to form a sticky dough.

  2. Generously flour a board then transfer dough to the board. Sprinkle with more flour and knead gently, sprinkling more flour as needed. However, be sure to avoid adding too much flour as this might result in hard bread.

  3. Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Sprinkle board with flour then roll out one piece of dough. It should be about ten inches wide. Pick one end of the bread and roll to the other end. Tuck in the edges to form a loaf. Use a knife to make four diagonal cuts across the bread. Place on a greased tray or a tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat process with the rest of the pieces of dough.

    Note: To see how I form the loaves, watch the video.

  4. Place the loaves in a warm place to rise. I love turning my oven on for 2 minutes then turning it off and placing the bread in them to rise. Let them rise for one hour until about doubled in size.

  5. Beat egg then generously brush the loaves with the egg. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 15 minutes until the loaves are golden brown. Enjoy!
