Texas Toast Recipe

The texture of this bread is sort of like a crunchy crumpet. Slice thickly and slather on sweet honey butter.
Course: Breakfast & Brunch
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 loaf


Bread Ingredients

  • 500 grams plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar caster
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 7 grams dried yeast
  • 200 ml milk
  • 50 ml water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer dough 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.
