Homemade Subway Bread, and you can use this for pizza dough and many more other uses.
1 packet of yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
½ cup oil
1 cup boiling water (allow water to stand for 5 min)
5 cups flour
I prepare the dough in the Kenwood machine.
Add the flour, one cup at a time and mix with the dough hook and continue adding the flour until a soft dough is formed.
Let the dough mix for around 8 minutes total.
Once risen, punch down and roll into the desired shape.
One tip. For any dough recipe that requires milk, I always add about ½ cup extra milk (thus use 1½ cups of milk) and use less water, as more milk makes one dough much softer.
Once the dough is mixed in the machine it is slightly sticky but I like it like that because once it rises it’s all sorted and when punching down make sure your hands are oiled or floured.
