I've been baking for several years now, Nick Malgieris has helped me a lot. Follow these steps..and you'll have two amazing loaves of brttead. Get your kitchen nice and hot...I turn the oven on to 450, to get the right temp for proofing.

  • 6 cups of bread flour (i use King Arthur)
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • ¾ cup of water, room temp
  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup of whole milk, scalded and then cooled
  • 3 large eggs, room temp
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter. softened (room temp)
  • 1 tablespoon of fine sea salt
  • 2 loaf pans...buttered, and lined with parchment paper at the bottom
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degree - F
  2. Combine the flour and sugar in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Pour the water into the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk in the yeast. Wait 5 minutes, then whisk again. Whisk in the eggs and cooled milk.
  4. Use a large spatula to stir the flour mixture into the liquid a little at a time, stirring to combine between additions.
  5. Place the bowl on the mixer with dough hook and scatter pieces of butter on the surface of the dough; mix on the lowest speed for 1 minute.
  6. Stop the mixer and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
  7. Increase the speed to medium and sprinkle in the salt.

  10. Cover with plastic wrap and let ferment for abut an hour.
  11. Invert the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Flatten the dough to a disk. Fold the two sides in to over lap at the middle, then roll the top toward you all the way to the end.
  12. Invert, flatten, and repeat.
  13. Return the dough to the bowl (add more oil if necessary)
  14. Cover with plastic and let proof for about another hour
  15. Invert the dough to dough to a floured work surface, and shape it into a rough square. . Use a large knife and cut the dough in half.
  16. Pull the ends of each rectangle inwards. Then roll each one from the top, jelly roll style
  17. After tightly rolled, drop each roll into good ceramic bread pans.

  20. Bake until risen and well golden...about 35 minutes.
  21. Remove from oven...remove from pans...and cool on racks.






  • Hi, in the ingredient list, you don’t mention yeast. But #3 in the instructions says to ” add yeast”.
    I tried guessing ( I’m fairly new to bread making ) but ended up with nice dense bricks…lol
    Thank you

    • oh gosh, I am so sorry, Charlotte! We now have a food editor to catch errors in any recipe. I have updated the recipe to include the amount. It is 3 teaspoons of active dry yeast. I can tell you that successful bread making takes some practice. I love making bread because it really is something you have to develop a ‘knack’ for. You’ll get to know when the dough is at the right consistency and the temperature to help the rise. I have certainly made ‘bricks’ before myself. But the ‘bricks’ start becoming fewer and fewer. Hope you give us another try. And thank you so much for letting us know. Take care, and do stay in touch. Kris & Wesley
