First you have to make a paste:
1 C waterMix and cook over medium heat until custard like
1/4 C flour
420 g bread flourMix dry ingredients then add the wet. Mix on low speed in an upright until shiny and firm.
70 g sugar
5 g salt
1 pack yeast (about 7 g)
1 large egg 45 g
98 g milk
45 g maple syrup
120 g paste at room temperature
45 g unsalted butter
80 g raisins
Add butter in small cubes, mix on high for 10 minutes. (We actually did it for like...2 hours or something...until it passed the window test. Take a bit of dough and stretch it out, if it doesn't break, but instead stretches so that you can see a little bit through the dough then it's ready.)
Allow it to rise for 40 min or until doubled. Roll out into 2 loaves, then rise 1 hour.
Brush with egg, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
