390g2 2/3 cups bread flour
2 1/4tsp1 sachet active dry yeast
Fill a small bowl with 1 cup of warm water (between 105°F- 115°F), sprinkle one tsp of sugar in the warm water and the yeast. Whisk the mixture till dissolved and set aside for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, the yeast should be foamy and should have bubbled up; if this does not happen, then your yeast may be inactive. Dump that batch and try again with new yeast.
In a mixing bowl, mix in the flour, sugar, salt and ascorbic acid. Add in the scalded flour and activated yeast. Knead the dough for 15 minutes. It should be smooth to touch after kneading and not sticky.
Place the dough in a bowl that has been greased lightly with vegetable oil, cover, and allow to rise in a warm place till it doubles in size (usually about 1 hour).
After the dough is doubled, tip it out of the bowl on a clean work surface, and knead for five minutes.
Preheat an oven to 350°F
Divide the dough into 6 even balls and place in a baking pan covered with plastic wrap and allow it to rise until it has doubled in size.
Bake the bread in the pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes. Finally, cool the baked bread for at least five minutes and serve.
