  • Start kneading the dough by adding water and prepare a soft dough.

Notes

  1. In case you don’t have brown sugar, you can use regular sugar.
  2. If bread is browning fast, cover it with aluminium foil and continue to bake.
  3. You can brush the dough with milk as well before baking.
  4. Water amount can vary depending upon the quality of flour. So adjust accordingly.
  5. Baking time can vary from oven to oven.
