For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Try a New Recipe Tuesday



 Today I am sharing a traditional recipe from back home in the Caribbean. It is served at festive gatherings, Christmas, dedications, birthday etc...


Pain au Beurre - Butter Bread

Ingredients:


4 cups flour + 2-4 Tbsp
125g (1/2 cup) butter
200 ml milk (half of it can be water)
3 Tbsp water
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 yeast

Preparation:

1. Melt the butter and mix in the sugar, eggs , milk and water.
2. Mix flour, salt and yeast.
3. Mix the liquid to the dry ingredients.
4. Knead for about 5 min. until smooth dough. Let it rise till double in size (1 1/2 -2 hours)
5. Punch dough down and divide into 2.
6.Take one batch and divide into 3 equal sizes. Form each into long strings and shape the 3 stands into a braid.

7. Place on a greased cookie sheet, brush with egg yolk and bake in a preheated oven @ 375 for 25-30 min.


Bread machine option:

Put all the ingredients in the bread machine in the ordered specified by your machine.
Once dough is ready continue on from # 5.

This is great right out of the oven, or can be frozen, then warmed up in foil in an oven and eaten with a warm hot bowl of chocolate milk.
