White bread

1. Combine the yeast, sugar and water. Stand in a warm place for 10 minutes or until the mixture starts to bubble.
2. Combine the flour, salt and butter in the bowl of a freestanding mixer with a dough hook attachment. Add the yeast mixture to the bowl and mix on low speed to combine ingredients. Increase the speed to medium-high and mix for 8 minutes, or until a smooth ball forms.
3. Place the dough into a greased bowl and place in the oven on Prove yeast dough and prove for 45 minutes,or until the dough doubles in size.
4. Grease and flour a 24 cm loaf tin.
5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured bench. Gently shape the dough into a rectangle and place into the prepared tin, seam side down.
6. Place back into the oven on Prove yeast dough and prove for 15 minutes.
7. Remove the dough from the oven and select Fan Plus at 210°C. Position a rack on shelf level 2.
8. Once the oven has reached temperature, change the oven function to Moisture Plus with Fan Plus at 210°C with two manual bursts of steam, releasing the first burst of steam immediately and the second after 10 minutes. Place the bread onto the rack and cook for 35 minutes or until cooked through.
9. Remove the bread from the tin once cooked. Cool completely before slicing.
