Crumpet Sandwich Bread Recipe


I am a huge fan of baking my own bread, for the lack of filler, the lower coast, and the joy of producing something delicious. We recently purchased a Hamilton Beach 63325 6-Speed Stand Mixer, which makes kneading dough SO much easier (and saves my poor hands!) so I have been playing around with recipes.


I actually messed up this recipe and it came out kind of amazing, so I wanted to share it with y'all.


Ingredients:


  1. Mix all ingredients together until sticky dough forms.
  2. Cover bowl with damp rag and let stand for 2 hours or until it doubles in size.
  3. Knead/mix the dough again for about 5 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Grease bread pan and pour dough into it.
  6. Again cover with damp rag and let stand 1 hour or until risen nearly to the top of the pan.
  7. Remove rag and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, then without opening the oven turn the heat up to 425 and bake for another 20-25 minutes.
  8. Let cool 15 minutes in the pan, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely before cutting.


The result is a spongey, moist, crumpet-esque bread that works very well toasted, or with sandwiches. It's a little bit sweet, and nicely chewy, and soaks up butter and jam well.
