I recently learnt how to make bread and it's been very exciting for me. I bake bread for my family every weekend and I would love to share the recipe with you.

Flour 10cups
Margarine 5tablespoons
Active dried yeast 5teaspoons
Sugar 5 tablespoon
Salt 1/2 tablespoon
Milk. 2 1/2 cup
Water 1 1/2 cup (lukewarm water)

Weigh and measure your ingredients accurately

Into a small bowl mix the water yeast and sugar, leave for a short while until it starts to froth. (This help you to know if your yeast is active)

Into your mixing bowl add 6cups of flour and salt.

Add the margarine (slightly melted).

Turn with a wooden spoon,

Add the yeast, sugar, water mixture.

Turn with your wooden spoon

Add the milk, turn and add the rest of the flour.

Work with your hands until, it forms a dough.

Turn on a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 mins.

Place the dough into a lightly floured mixing bowl and cover with a clean napkin.

Leave for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Place on a lightly floured work surface and knead lightly to remove the air. Cut and roll ino desired shaped.

Place on a greased baking tray.
Crack an egg into a bowl and add a teaspoon of cold water and with a brush, brush each one with egg to give your bread a nice brown crust.

Bake in a preheated oven for about 30 mins or until light brown.

Enjoy your bread with a cup of beverage of your choice
