Easy White Bread Recipe - in less than one hour

personal chef fort lauderdale

For those who think they do not have the patience to make their own white bread, think again. A little bored this morning, we have come up with a white bread recipe which takes about an hour from start to finish - including the mixing of the ingredients.
5 1/2 - 6 1/2 cups flour - we used all-purpose
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup oil - we used grape seed oil
2 1/4 warm tap water
oil for spritzing
In a large mixing bowl (of a food mixer), place 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and oil.
Add hot water all at once.
Mix on medium speed with a dough hook (you can start with a paddle then move to a dough hook later on - we didn’t want to have to wash anything extra) for about 2 minutes.
Add 1 cup more of the flour.
Mix on a medium to high speed (depending on your mixer) for 1 minute.
Add remaining flour. While mixing, add your flour until your dough is just sticky but not too much. It will want to stick to the sides of the bowl but come off easily.
When all your flour is combined, on a medium mixing speed mix (this is your kneading) mix/knead your dough for 6 minutes.
…. Now, when the kneading time completed, we removed from the bowl on an oiled surface (we also oiled our hands due to the sticky nature of the dough) and formed into a log. We cut the log in half. Shaped the dough logs individually, then placed on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spritzed the tops of the loaves/logs with oil and covered with cling film. These are ‘freeform loaves’.
Alternately you can generally grease loaf pans and place your loaves/logs in them. Spritz the top with oil and cover with cling film.
Let stand for 10-20 minutes. Depending on the humidity and temperature in your kitchen, the loaves will rise very quickly.
In a preheated 400 degree F oven, place your risen loaves in the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes. They will brown quickly.
Using an instant read thermometer, test if your bread is done. We brought the bread to 195-200 degrees.
The internal temperature of a loaf of crusty yeast bread when it is cooked to perfection should be 200 to 210 degrees Fahrenheit. Soft breads and dinner rolls should be 190 to 200 degrees F.

16 Best Benefits Of Corn (Bhutta) For Skin, Hair And Health

Corn, also known as maize or our good old ( Bhutta/Makkai/Challi ) in Hindi, ‘ Mokka Jonnalu ‘ in Telugu, ‘ Makkacholam ‘ in Tamil, ‘ Cholam ‘ in Malayalam, ‘ Musukina Jol a’ in Kannada, ‘ Makkai ‘ in Gujarati, ‘ Makai ‘ in Marathi and Punjabi and ‘ Butta ‘ in Bengali. Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility. Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be

The History of Aluminum Foil: Just Don't Call it Tin Foil

Many incredible things occurred before it became a staple in the modern kitchen.
