Basic White Toast 基本白土司
A simple white toast made from very basic ingredients, it just tasted like the white toast sold in traditional kopitiam (coffee shop). This recipe is definitely a keeper for me
1 cup cold water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cups bread flour (I used 2 ½ cups bread flour + ½ cup plain flour)
1 tsp instant yeast
By bread machine
1) Place ingredients in the bread pan according to the above sequence (salt and sugar at opposite of the pan)(make an indention at the centre of the flour and add in yeast).
2) Select 'Basic' program, 'Light' colour (select 'Medium' colour if you prefer crispier and thicker crust), '700g' (smaller size), press 'Start/Stop' button to start the program.
3) When done, remove bread from bread pan and cool on wire rack.
I made this bread one month ago, ever since my first attempt this has become my regular recipe. I have used this recipe to make breads with some variations, such as replacing part of the bread flour with wholemeal flour, using milk instead of water, etc.
