who don't love Sunday mornings when you can sleep chill and have a nice relaxed breakfast with your love? I do love it! Especially when I get some homemade delicious soft white butterbread with peanutbutter, jam and a cup off coffee.
For that I have an easy quick recipe. Because we love it so much we always make some more. So you can freeze half of the bread and take it out and bake it for short time again whenever you want.
This makes about 2 big white butterbreads or 4 smalls:
1 kg white flower or plaited loaf flower
1 teaspoon salt about 20 g30 g fresh yeast or 1 pack dry yeast
2 teaspoon sugar
300 ml whole milk
200 ml water
120 g room temperature butter
Mix flower and salt in a pan together. Dissolve yeast with sugar in a little light warm liquid and ad to the flower. Pour in milk and water and knead it into a smooth dough. I always do it with my kitchen aid. Add the soft butter pieces and knead the dough smooth. If the dough is too sticky add some more flower if it's too dry at some more liquid. Cover and rise it at room temperature to the double dough. After beat dough up and left it for another 30 minutes.
After this process break dough in half, form 2 strands and weave a braid.

In the lower part of the oven preheated to 200 ° C for about 50-60 minutes.
When you have a convection oven heat it to 180 ° C and bake it for about 30-45 minutes.
If you thinking to freeze the bread bake it just for the half of time, take it out let it cool down. Wrap it into
papersheet and freeze up to 3 month. Whenever you wanna enjoy it, take it out and bake it for the rest of the time until finish.
*enjoy the bread with peanut butter, butter or jam and have a nice Sunday*
