#Recipe – home baked white bread

I have been sent a fantastic breadmaker from Russell Hobbs and so I thought I would test it out with a basic white loaf first. I wanted to make sure it worked and that the recipe was OK, it is a really yummy loaf and the breadmaker is fantastic. Such a great idea for home baking, especially, if like me you haven’t got the time to knead your dough and finish off the loaf as you would like to.

For the cupcakes
  1. 2 1/4 Cups Plain Flour, sifted
  2. 1/2 Cup White Sugar
  3. 1/2 tsp Bicarb of Soda
  4. 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  5. 1 Cup (2 sticks) Salted Butter
  6. 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  7. 1/2 Cup Hot Water
  8. 2 Eggs
  9. 1 tsp Vanilla
  10. 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  11. 1/2 Cup Whole Milk
For the frosting
  1. 1 Cup (2 sticks) Salted Butter, softened at room temperature
  2. 4 1/2 Cups icing Sugar
  3. Approximately 2 TSP of Caramel flavouring
  4. 3-4 TBSP Milk
  5. Butterkist Salted Caramel Popcorn for decoration
  6. Golden Syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line 1 cupcake trays with 10 cupcake cases and spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Mix flour, white sugar, Bicarb of soda, and baking powder together in a bowl.
  3. In a medium saucepan over high heat combine butter, brown sugar and hot water together. Heat until melted together and is the consistency of syrup. This means letting it boil for about 10 minutes while stirring constantly. Let it cool for 3 minutes.
  4. Pour syrup over dry ingredients and mix in electric mixer.
  5. Add eggs, vanilla, heavy cream, and whole milk and mix well.
  6. Scoop batter into cupcake cases, about half way.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the knife test is clean! Remove from the oven at let cool for at least an hour before frosting.
  8. To prepare frosting, in a stand mixer cream butter until fluffy (usually about 3-5 minutes).
  9. Add two cups of icing sugar and mix.
  10. Add caramel flavouring.
  11. Add the remaining icing sugar and mix.
  12. Add 3-4 TBSP of milk and combine.
  13. Place frosting in the the fridge to cool for 20-30 minutes.
  14. Fill a piping bag with frosting and frost the tops of the cupcakes. I just did a simple swirl on top since I would be adding the popcorn on top.
  15. Top the frosting with the popcorn.
  16. Drizzle golden syrup on the top.

    I love cooking but never been much of a baking fan and especially not bread. But this looks easy enough for me to try and nothing beats freshly baked bread. Thanks for sharing.

    I love cooking but never been much of a baking fan and especially not bread as I always think it’s to hard. But this looks easy enough for me to try and nothing beats freshly baked bread. Thanks for sharing.

    There’s nothing better than homemade bread… Tastes so much better than anything you buy and makes the house smell amazing too.

    This bread looks so delicious! I wish I had a bread maker… I’ve been making bread the old fashioned way, waiting for it to rise and then baking in the oven, but it’s really hit and miss. Sometimes it goes well and is fluffly, and sometimes it comes out like a rock :/

    I’m really not great at making bread – too impatient. Time to great a breadmaker I think! Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. Sorry I was particularly slow getting over for this one. I’ve pinned it to my food board and a tweet will go out shortly 🙂
