❤️ “everything bagel” white bread loaf ❤️

bread, recipes

this crusty bread is perfect for sandwiches or served alongside a homecooked meal!

ingredients:

  • 2c bread flour (plus up to a 1/2c more as needed)
  • 1tsp salt
  • 200mL warm water (@ 110F – try to get as close to 110F as you can. if you don’t have a thermometer, shoot for warm, but not steaming/boiling water, else you’ll kill the yeast. i 100% recommend investing in a kitchen thermometer if you can)
  • 1/2Tbsp sugar
  • 1tsp (heaping) instant yeast
  • 1 1/2-2Tbsp “everything but the bagel” seasoning – here’s a recipe if you can’t purchase the pre-mixed easily (in Canada, you can find the seasoning at winners/homesense).

method:

  1. combine the flour, salt, and everything bagel seasoning in a large bowl. whisk well.
  2. combine the yeast and sugar in a medium bowl. add the water and stir gently. let sit for about fifteen minutes or until foamy.
  3. make a well in the dry ingredients and add the yeast mixture. stir to combine.
  4. knead the dough gently in the bowl until it comes together, is smooth, and springs back to your touch slightly – about 5-7 minutes.
  5. allow the dough to rest, covered, in a warm, draft-free spot for about one hour, or until doubled.
  6. preheat the oven to 450F.
  7. punch down the dough and shape as desired. place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cover once more, allowing to rest for about twenty minutes.
  8. uncover the dough, sprinkle the top with a bit of flour, and score if desired. place in the oven and bake for twenty minutes.
  9. if desired, pour about 1/2c of hot water into a cast iron pan and place on the oven rack below the bread. this helps create steam and a crustier bread.
  10. after the twenty minutes are up, turn off the oven and crack it open a bit. let the bread sit in the oven for another five minutes.
  11. remove the loaf from the oven and allow to cool for about 15-30 minutes before serving. this bread is delicious on its own, or with a bit of vegan butter!
