Step by step instruction of cooking Loaf
First I made the dough. Sequence added in bucket of bread machine flour 150 g, sugar - 5 g, all milk (160 g) and yeast (4 grams - 1 teaspoon). Then I turned the bread machine in the mode of "dough" (the dough for 30 min). I used the bread machine only for dough. Once risen the dough was starting to fall off (2 hours passed), I added the yeast mixture all the remaining ingredients and again turn on the "dough". In 40 minutes, when the dough has visibly come, turn on the "dough".
A quarter of an hour after that, I dumped the dough from the bread machine on the table and slightly squeezed his hands. The dough was gorgeous - soft, airy, moderately buttery and flavorful. But too soft, even slightly sticky. To intervene in the dough a couple of tablespoons of flour. The dough was more dense, to hands does not stick, there elasticity.
Split the bun into two approximately equal parts. One part will become the base of the loaf, the other will be the jewelry. Basis I slightly rolled on the table, and put on a baking sheet, greased. A little flattened and left to rise for.
Part of the test made three of the flagellum and wove pigtail. The length of the braids is quite large - she will frame the loaf on the edge.
Produced roses. First made five biscuits and laid them in a row with a slight overlap.
Turned those tortillas into a roll.
With a knife cut the roll in half.
Turned out the buds. At this stage they are beautiful.
Then put all of these decorations at the base of the loaf, trying to make something beautiful. On the outer circumference of the loaf put the pigtail. Symmetrical - with four rosettes, between leaves, etc. Smeared on the top with the beaten egg. Gave the loaf a time for half an hour in a warm place and after that sent it in a pre-heated oven.
Baked the loaf in the first althroughout at 200 C, then at 180 C (fan), about 40 minutes. At some point I thought that the top begins to burn. Had to cover with foil.
When the smell of the finished cakes, to order speared bread with a stick in a secluded spot, to make sure it is cooked.
Well, when I removed the loaf and are it on the table, frankly, was just amazed. Very beautiful and elegant thing happened. Did not expect this.
