Soft Butter Bread Recipe

Ingredients and Replacements
For the perfect Soft Butter Bread, you’ll need:

500 gr of wheat flour
300 grams of butter
200 grams of sugar
30 gr of baking powder
5 eggs
50ml milk
1 tbsp salt
While there are no direct substitutes for the key ingredients, you can experiment with variations to suit your taste preferences. For instance, consider using whole wheat flour for a nuttier flavor or opting for a sugar substitute for a lighter sweetness.

Beat warm water with sugar and dry yeast. Set aside for the yeast to activate.
Beat the flour with salt and add the yeast solution.
Knead the dough with your hands until it is smooth and elastic.
Add the butter and knead for 10 minutes. Set aside to rise for 2 hours.
After two hours, or once it has doubled in size, the dough can be pierced.
Cut the dough into 6 pieces.
Flatten each piece with a rolling pin, then roll it up.
Place rolled pieces in a cake pan and set aside for 1 hour or until doubled.
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180°C/350°F. Brush with melted butter.
Top 4 Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Mistake 1: Neglecting Yeast Activation
Ensure the yeast is properly activated by allowing it to sit in warm water and sugar. A frothy mixture indicates successful activation.

Mistake 2: Rushing the Kneading Process
Take your time when kneading the dough, especially after adding butter. This contributes to the bread’s soft and fluffy texture.

Mistake 3: Inadequate Rising Time
Allow the dough to rise for the specified 2 hours. Insufficient rising time can result in a dense and less flavorful bread.
Mistake 4: Overbaking
Keep a close eye on the baking time. Overbaking can lead to a dry loaf. Aim for a golden-brown color and a toothpick inserted into the center coming out clean.
