Nigerian Agege Bread Dough

Agege Bread is a Nigerian bread. We can make many bread recipes with this dough as base. One dough for all. Very simple but I promise you it's perfect.

Recipe source: Bilikis Kitchen
Flour - 3 + 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Instant Yeast - 1 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Melted Butter - 1 + 1/2 tbsp
Vinegar - 1/2 tsp
Warm milk - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. Add the wet ingredients one by one to combine the dough thoroughly.

2. The dough will be slightly sticky first. Transfer the dough to a floured workspace and keep kneading till it's no longer sticky and turns smooth. Kneading well for a long time increases the elasticity.

3. Roll the dough to a ball and place it in a lightly greased bowl and cover it with a cling film or foil tightly. Let it rise in a warm place for about an hour or till double in size.

4. Turn out the dough to a slightly floured surface and use it according to your recipe.

1. For this recipe, my 1 cup = 240 ml
2. For Savoury recipe, reduce the sugar to half quantity.
