Gently knock back, seal bowl again and let rest for further 2 hrs..... You can miss this second proof if you wish.
Now shape your dough, place into a baking tin, and cover with damp tea towel until doubled in size.
Brush or spray with water, and sprinkle with sesame seeds
Place dough into a pre heated oven, at 225 centigrade/gas mark 8 for 30 to 40 mins until golden brown.
I like to place 900 grams dough into tin for the loaf and make the remaining dough into bread rolls, 100 grams each aprox. Bake rolls for 15 mins aprox

Why do you use only 1 gram of yeast, how does the loaf and buns rise ?

RE: Yoghurt & Milk Loaf

Good morning Mrs Thomas, Thank you for your question. Using this method, the first stage is to let ferment overnight adding to the flavour of the finished bread. The proofing of the dough and the final rise after shaping is not quick, and takes maybe 6 or 7 hours or so, again adding flavour to the finished bread. I always make my dough (WHAT EVER TYPE OF BREAD I AM MAKING) using the overnight method. You can speed the rise time if you like by adding a small amount of extra yeast 4/5 grams to your liquids on the second stage. I hope this has answered your question, however I am not a professional baker but prefer to make my own bread using Shiptons quality organic flours. The bread bought from supermarkets is made in factories and has chemicals added and other things added to speed up the process and make the bread keep longer. It only takes about about 2 hours from grain leaving farm to finished loaf wrapped and packed in it's POLYTHENE bag. ( some times still warm.... A NO NO ). SHOP BOUGHT BREAD = TASTELESS NASTY GARBAGE. A LOT NICER TO MAKE YOUR OWN. Thank you Have a wonderful day Regards, Phil.
