Swirl bread

I need to make some bread for the week for my breakfast I debated what bread to make this week I looked through my bread books a finally decided on swirl bread.


So I weigh out 260g strong white flour and put it in the bowl. I then add 5g salt and 15g of sugar. Then in a separate bowl I weigh out 3g of dried yeast. I then add 200ml of warm water to the yeast and dissolve it. I then add two large eggs and mix it all up. I then add the yeast egg mixture to the flour and then I add 20ml of olive oil and mix it all up. I then attach the dough hook to the mixer and I let the magic mixer knead it for 8 minutes I then leave it in the bowl covered up for 1 ½ hours to double in size. Coffee time.


1 ½ hours up. I get the amazing blue mat out and sprinkle flour over it. I then get the dough out of the bowl and put it on the mat. I knock the air out of it and make it into a ball. I then roll it out into a long sausage. I then roll the dough into a swirl and put it on a lined baking tray. I then brush it with milk and sprinkle on sesame seeds. I cover the dough with a large glass bowl for 20 minutes to rise one more time. I pre heat the oven to 200 degrees.


20 minutes up I put the bread in the oven for 20 minutes and set the timer. Time to tidy up and make the kitchen all clean and tidy again.
Bread is all cooked I leave it on the wire rack to cool.
So to sum up
260 g strong white flour
5g salt
15g sugar
3 g dried yeast
2 large eggs
20 ml olive oil
Splash of milk
Sesame seeds
200ml milk
Until next time happy baking
