soft and smooth. Add some flour if the dough is too sticky, but try to add as little as possible to

soften the bread.

4. First starter:

• Light oil in a large bowl. Put the fried dough into a bowl and turn it so that it is coated with oil on all

sides. Cover the bowl with a clean tea towel or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled

in size, about 1 to 1/2 hours.

5. Shaping and Double Resting:

• When the dough doubles in size, tap it lightly to release more steam. Open the surface of the soft

dough and shape it into a loaf. Place the dough in a greased 9 x 5 pan, cover and let rise until almost

doubled in size, 30-45 minutes.

6. Preheat the oven:

• About halfway through the second rise, preheat the oven to 190°C.

7. Baking:

• When the dough rises for the second time, lightly brush it with melted butter. Bake the bread in the

preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and sounds good when you

tap it.

8. Cooling:

• Remove the bread from the oven and place it on a rack to cool completely before slicing.

Tips:

• Water temperature: Make sure the water is warm but not hot to prevent the yeast from dying.

• Kneading: Kneading creates gluten in the dough, which gives bread its texture and chewiness. If

you’re new to cooking, there are many tutorials online to guide you.

• Location of exposure: A warm, draft-free location is best for dust to rise. Some ovens have an

indicator light. You can also turn the oven on for a minute and then turn it off again and let the dough

rise in it. .

Enjoy your homemade bread as a side dish, on sandwiches, or simply spread on top. There’s nothing
