This bread retains the right balance of acquiring moisture yet flaky because of the butter that goes into the flour. The flavor is exactly what a fresh oven baked bread should have. Keep in mind that this bread should be eaten up within a week since it does not have any preservatives in it. This is why and perhaps strong reasons for making homemade bread from scratch because not only is it healthier compared to the store bought ones but also free from sodium, artificial flavors and unwanted preservatives.
The key to getting a homemade bread right is combining all the ingredients until well blended. The right way of getting a good dough consistency is by adding the wet ingredients slowly in several batches and keep checking for the consistency at the same time while blending. If your dough looks dry just add a splash of buttermilk or if it’s too sticky add extra flour until well mixed. You can either use hands to bend or a kitchen aid mixer, whichever is feasible for you. Keep in mind that if you want to use hands for blending, proper kneading is critical for good textured dough. One way of doing this is by using your knuckles to gently punch the dough and roll it between the heels of your palms. Always cover the dough by laying a plastic wrap over the bowl and let it rest until the dough rises and doubles in size. In the winter if it's somewhat challenging for the dough to rise due to lack of enough heat, you can turn on the oven for about 2-3 minutes. Switch it off and stick the bowl of dough inside the oven and let it rest. The heat generated in the oven will help the dough rise well. These are a few good tips that should help in baking a soft textured bread.
Sometimes we tend to get a bit nervous when you have to bake bread with yeast. But don’t worry, once you face your fears with yeast you’ll never go back to store-bought bread. The main thing to factor in while homemade baking bread is how you treat the yeast in any bread recipe. While it is true that yeast baking is somewhat tricky, you can still bake quality bread at home if you follow some simple steps for using yeast. Firstly, since yeast is a live bacteria, it is important to activate it using a liquid whether water or milk that is set at the right temperature anywhere between 105 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit. If the liquid is any hotter, there is a high chance of the yeast causing to die which might not help the bread rise at all.
