Flour for a white bread
The varieties of bread flour from Soubry have been specially developed to obtain a perfect result in the bread baking process, even with bread machines that demand a very high flour quality. Soubry bread flour contains a lot of high-quality proteins. These guarantee bread with a perfect crumb structure and a golden brown crust. These flour types form the base to which you simply have to add water, yeast, salt and other ingredients depending on the recipe.
This flour is a careful blend of fine wheat for a soft, beautiful and white crumb texture. Nice and light and flavourful.
- Crumble the yeast into the milk and stir in the egg yolks. Add the flour and sugar and mix well. Add the salt. Do not add the butter until the dough is formed. Continue to knead it into a smooth dough. You can check if the dough is ready by doing the stretch test.
- On a sheet of baking paper, roll out the dough into an oblong shape to form a 1 1/2 cm thick piece. Cover with a kitchen towel or clingfilm in the refrigerator and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
- Continue rolling out the dough into a rectangular sheet 12 to 15 cm wide and 1 cm thick. Using a sharp knife, divide into triangles. Place a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray and place the triangles on it. Don't put them too close together because they will continue to rise. Cover with a kitchen towel or clingfilm and allow to rise for 60 minutes.
- Just before putting the tray into the oven, brush the triangles lightly with the egg wash. Shape the branches by cutting at an angle with scissors. You can lightly sprinkle them with granulated sugar or bake-stable chocolate chips.
- Preheat the oven to 240°C. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. The little trees are done when they have a nice brown colour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Just before serving, you can sprinkle them lightly with powdered sugar for a real winter effect.
