Let me introduce you to a new, top-secret ingredient: Best Bread Dough Mix.
Anyone that has been paying attention will know that I am not a baker- or a cook for that matter- and can seemingly mess up on an otherwise-perfect recipe.
While working for Bosch Mixers, I get the opportunity to test out new products. So, I got to try my hand at making bread with the new Best Bread Dough Mix. I made a batch in the Bosch Universal Plus, and another batch in the NutriMill Artiste.
My husband was absolutely thrilled with the finished product. He said it was the best tasting bread ever, and exactly the way he likes it. I have to admit he gave me a few pointers to make it even more perfect. We tried it warm with butter, then with jam; we toasted it; we even dipped it in our soup!
Whether you’re a beginner baker or a professional bread artist, you will love this bread mix!
There is a level of knowledge and skill needed to make bread and get it perfect. Using this dough mix is a great way to learn without being intimidated. All you need is the dough mix, flour, water and oil. That’s it! Just add the dough mix to your ingredients, then place them into the mixer and turn it on. No need to prep anything. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. That said, there are still some areas that you can perfect.
Tip 1: The Bosch Mixer is an amazing mixer, and it will tell you when you’ve added enough flour. Instead of adding all of your flour at once, add it gradually cup by cup, with the mixer on speed 1-2. Continue adding flour until the bowl starts to clean. Then continue kneading on speed 2. The recipe does not need to be followed exactly, but you should add no more or less than one cup of flour.
Tip 2. Use the windowpane test to determine when the dough has been kneaded enough. Stretch a piece of the dough between your fingers, if it stretches and becomes somewhat translucent before tearing it’s done. If it tears then continue to knead for another minute or two. Shape and place into loaf pans, then let rise until the dough doubles in size.
You can order the Best Bread dough mix on our website under the consumables tab. An 18 oz. package will also be included with the Baker’s Pack. That’s enough to make 8 loaves of bread. I made one loaf, 9 rolls, and two sausage cheese rolls, with just half of my mix.
This bread was fabulous, and can only get better with our little tweaks. Perfect your bread by practicing and making your dream loaves. Just remember, if I can make bread, you can make bread!
