mom got me a pullman pan, and I just had to break it in, .
uh oh! a bit crumbly. meh, tastes good, .
just used a basic recipe, that I’ll have to tinker around with to see how I can improve it.
only thing I did differently is instead of using 1+1/2 cup milk, I used 1c. milk and 1/2 cup water.
Only thing I wish for, is more pans to make more than one, .
1 c. milk
1/2 c. water
4 Tbls. Butter
2 Tbls. sugar
heated in a pan til 100°F, turned off stove and stirred til the butter was completely melted. by that time the temprature had gone to about 105°. Poured into the mixing bowl, which was glass and brought the temperature back down.
mix in 2+1/4 tsp yeast, and let sit for ten minutes.
mix it 4 c. flour (I used unbleached), and 1 tsp. salt.
also, I added on egg at this step.
mix for ten minutes.
cover with oil, and place into a bowl, let rise til double. (since our kitchen is awfully cold, I placed the bowl on top of a pan with hot sink water to keep it warm. next time, I’ll not do that, as that might be one reason for the crumbliness).
punch down the dough, and form into a long tube the length of the pullman pan. Place into the well greased pullman pan (or parchment paper lined, as that’s what I used). press down lightly to fill every corner and have it equal size across the entire pan.
Let set in the pan to rise, preheating the oven when it is one inch from the top. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. (next time I’ll raise the temp a little to 375).
