Step 1
Combine the Instant Dry Yeast (1 tsp) and All-Purpose Flour (2 3/4 cups) in the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attached. Mix on a low speed for about 2 minutes, until the yeast is evenly distributed.
Step 2
Add the Granulated Sugar (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Salt (1/2 Tbsp) , Water (6.5 oz) , Large Egg (1) , Unsalted Butter (3/4 cup) , and Milk (2 oz) .
Step 3
Knead the dough for 30 minutes on a medium speed.
Step 4
Place the dough in a lightly-oiled bowl, cover with plastic and place in a warm place to prove for about 2 hours.
Step 5
The dough should be nicely risen and at least double in size.
Step 6
Knock the dough down gently and shape into a round ball. Place on a floured baking tray and allow to prove for another hour.
Step 7
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C (325 degrees F).
Step 8
Beat the Egg (1) to make an egg wash. Using a pastry brush, gently brush on the egg wash and sprinkle with Sea Salt Flakes (to taste) .
Step 9
Bake for 30 minutes, until the loaf is a beautiful golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before eating.
Step 10
Serve your Pain Au Lait and enjoy!
