Coco bread recipe
Ingredients2 packets yeast
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 medium egg
1 cup warm milk
1 tsp salt
3.5 cups white flour
1/2 cup melted butter
PreparationMix the yeast, sugar and water together.
Beat the egg and stir in to the mixture.
Stir in the milk and salt.
Stir in 2 cups of the flour.
Slowly add more flour, stop when the mixture becomes stiff.
Knead the dough until it is smooth - this should take about 10 minutes!
Transfer the dough to a clean bowl and some of the melted butter.
Roll the dough around the bowl until it is entirely coated in butter.
Cover with a damp towel for 1 hour (this will allow the mixture to rise).
Divide the dough in to 10 pieces and roll each piece in to a circle, about 1/2 cm thick.
Brush the dough with melted butter then fold in half.
CookingPreheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Place folded pieces on a well greased sheet and place on the bottom rack of the oven.
Bake until golden brown (this should take around 15 minutes).
