Nothing beats the aroma of freshly baked bread. This twisted bread is so simple to make and using ingredients that you almost always have in your pantry. Make this once and you will never buy bread from outside again.
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp yeast
1 1/4 tsp sugar
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
Heat the coconut milk (save 2 tbsp of the coconut milk for later) and water in a small pot. Keep checking it to make sure it is luke warm/warm to the touch.
Take it off the heat and add the yeast and sugar. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy.
In a bowl, mix together flour and salt and whisk together. Add the yeast mixture and oil and mix together. Take the dough out on your working surface and knead for 8-10 minutes.
Place the dough in a ball and cover with cling film. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Once done, punch the dough down and knead again softly. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts.
Roll each part and put the dough side by side and braid. You can use the video above for a visual guide on how to braid the dough.
Cover the dough braid with a wet kitchen towel and let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place.
Brush the 2 tbsp coconut milk that you had set aside on it and bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 30 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes and then slice and serve.
