Caramelized Onion Bread - Beautifully Aromatic Homemade Caramelized Onion Bread.
Recipe type: Bread
Sometimes a good white farm loaf just doesn't make the grade. By simply making a couple of changes you can end up with a beautifully rustic and aromatic bread like this caramelized onion bread.
  • 950g Strong white bread flour
  • 60g Vegetable shortening (Fat), grated
  • 15ml Sugar
  • 10ml Salt
  • 12.5ml Instant yeast
  • 30ml Milk powder
  • 600ml Warm Water
  • 2 Medium onions
  1. Peel and chop the onions into quarter rounds.
  2. Heat 30ml of oil in a pan over medium heat and add the onion.
  3. Fry the onion for 8 to 10 minutes until well browned and caramelized. Remove from the heat and set this aside.
  4. Measure out the white bread flour, milk powder, salt, sugar, granulated garlic and yeast.
  5. Grate the vegetable shortening and add this to the flour.
  6. Place the bowl on your mixer and mix this on low speed until well incorporated.
  7. Add all of the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix this in briefly.
  8. Stir the caramelized onion into the warm water and pour this into the mixer bowl.
  9. Mix this just until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the flour.
  10. Swap out the beater paddle for the dough hook and proceed to knead the dough for 8 minutes on the second to lowest speed.
  11. Remove the bowl from the mixer, cover with cling-wrap and allow this to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  12. After the first rise, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.
  13. Knead the dough briefly and form it into a log.
  14. Cut the log into 2 equal pieces, and form 2 logs from these.
  15. Transfer these to a parchment lined baking sheet, dust the tops of the loaves with flour and cover them loosely with cling-wrap.
  16. Allow the loaves to rise again for 30 minutes in a warm place.
  17. Bake the loaves in a pre-heated oven at 200c or 400f for 40 to 45 minutes until well browned.
  18. Remove the loaves from the oven and allow them to cool on racks before slicing and serving.
  19. And there we have it.... beautifully crusty, light and aromatic, caramelized onion bread.
