After washing your stand mixer basin, start by pouring the following:

The half-cup size of warm whole milk

The half-cup size of warm water

1 tablespoon of Vanilla Essence

200g of softened butter

1 raw egg

Now stir all these you added together inside the basin for mixer before pouring the powdered flour and its mixture you have made earlier into it.

After adding the flour and its mixtures, stirring it continuously and it will form the sticky dough in the process after that, place the basin on the electric stand mixer to knead the dough until it will no longer be sticky. At this point, the dough will not be sticking on the walls of the basin rather it will stick within itself.

Bring it out from the mixer basin and place it on a flat surface sprinkled with some dry flour. This helps the dough not to stick on the flat surface.

Start pressing the dough against itself continuously until it becomes more elastic than before and unable to stick to any place you place it.

Sprinkle dry flour on the walls of the mixer basin and shape the dough to enter into it without any spacing or hole in the dough. Put it into the basin and cover it.

Allow the dough to rise for about 30minutes while in the basin.

After the rise, bring out the dough and repeat pressing again to remove trapped air in the dough and make it regain its elastic nature again. Once you have achieved strong elastic dough, you can proceed to the next step which is to bake the dough into bread.

Spray dry flour on the walls of the Agege bread moulder. Put the dough into the mould and press it against the mould to have an even flat surface and ensure no space is left beneath the mould.

Cover the mould.

Preheat your oven to attain a temperature within 300oF  to 360oF and allow it to be within that temperature for about 10 minutes to 15minutes.

Insert the Agege bread moulder into the Oven and allow it to bake for about 30minutes interval.

Bring it out from the oven and allow it to cool within room temperature before bringing the bread out from the mould.

To achieve a greasy crust surface on the wall of the bread, you can apply melted liquid butter using a soft brush on the walls of the bread immediately you bring it out from the oven. Afterwards, keep it warm for some time before the final removal from the mould.
