The benefit of cooking bread with steam is that it ensures it is perfectly crispy on the outside & deliciously soft on the inside. See the recipe here.
STEAM BREAD RECIPE
Ingredients
  • 500g wholemeal flour
  • 500g plain white flour
  • 600ml warm water or warm milk
  • 1 pack fresh yeast or dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Procedure
  1. Separate 1/2 cup of flour for a later use
  2. Mix all the other ingredients together using a dough hook on your stand mixer until a dough has formed
  3. Put the dough in a glass or plastic bowl (no metal), big enough to allow the dough to rise and place in the AEG SteamPro oven. Choose the dough proofing function for 1 hour
  4. Once the dough has finished proofing, sprinkle the remaining flour on your bench
  5. Take the risen dough out of the AEG SteamPro oven and kneed to form a loaf shape
  6. Score with 4 lines across the top and place onto the patisserie tray
  7. Set the SteamPro oven to Steam setting 1 at 210°C for 45 minutes
  8. The finished result will give the bread a perfect and even crust with a beautiful soft inner
