Texas Toast is sliced 2x the width of regular toast. You can buy a nice brioche, spread on sweet honey butter and grill. I use this American “English muffin bread” recipe for toast. The texture is like a crunchy crumpet and the holes fill up with sweet honey butter. Fry the buttered bread for a fried bread that is lip-smacking delicious!
The texture of this bread is sort of like a crunchy crumpet. Slice thickly and slather on sweet honey butter.
KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixerdough hook attachment
Grease and line with baking parchment a 2lb loaf tin.
In the stand mixer bowl, sift together flour, sugar, salt, bicarbonate of soda and yeast.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, water, and oil and heat to warm but not hot. Around 35 – 37C. I put the milk in the bowl while I’m preparing my ingredients then at this step add the oil and boiling water and I get pretty close to the right temperature.
Slowly pour the hot liquid into the dry ingredients with the mixer on low.
Beat the dough high speed for 1 minute; until smooth. It is a soft dough that looks the consistency of a smooth porridge.
Scoop the soft dough into the tin and leveling it as much as possible.
Let the dough rise. It should just barely cover the rim of the pan (don’t over prove it – it is a sweet dough).
BAKE! At 200C (fan oven) for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown
Let the bread cool for at least five minutes before turning it out on a wire rack to cool completely.
