Make This: Hope & Sesame Almond Milk Bread

Almond Milk Bread Recipe 

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 2 Tbsp flour dough

    • 2 1/2 cups flour

    • 1/4 cup sugar

    • 1 Tbsp instant yeast

    • 1 tsp salt

    • 1/2 cup Hope & Sesame Milk

    •  4 Tbsp melted butter

    • 1 egg

  • DIRECTIONS:

    • begin by making the tangzhong (roux) : whisk flour and milk in a small saucepan until smooth, cook over low heat, whisking constantly until thick (about 5 minutes) cool to lukewarm
    • once cooled,  mix the roux  with the remaining bread ingredients (can be mixed by hand or with a stand mixer)  then knead until you have a smooth dough - could take 10 minutes if kneading by hand
    • cover and let rise until puffy - about 60 minutes in a warm kitchen
    • divide the dough into 4 even pieces, and flatten each into a rectangle
    • fold each in thirds, like you are folding a letter, flatten again, and then beginning with the short side roll into a log
    • place logs seam side down in a lightly greased standard loaf pan
    • cover loosely, and allow to rise 30-40 minutes
    • preheat oven to 350°
    • bush loaf with almond milk and bake 30-35 minutes until golden brown
    • cool in pan 15 minutes, then complete cooling on rack
