Mock Bees Sting Bread

January 1, 2008

After hamburger buns, Mummy requested for more bead *giggle* it has been sometime since I made bread and she has been buying bread loaf, as it’s her comfort food. Her request made me feel good! She enjoys the bread I made over those store bought! MUHAHA~ *pose* see see! I’m learning well! Many thanks to forums I visit, and those bloggers who share their skills/tips and recipes online. *bow* Was searching for new bread recipes to try, new year , new bread =p

 

somehow mock bee sting bread, comes to my mind =X I wonder y, did I hear about this bread b4? how come i dun even rem wat it looks like? >.< And when I was scanning through peony’s bread recipes, She is singing praises of leelee’s mock bee sting bread! Keeper and it never disappoints her O.o All of a sudden, i recalled! Manfei made this bread some time back in 2007! =p And according to comments on fei’s blog, it is soft and chewy! AIYO! MUST TRY! so off I went to make this bread! =D y issit called mock bees sting bread? i have no idea! issit cos of the raisins which looks like the after effects of being sting by a bee? *ponder*

 

bread are simply amazing~ all you have to do is combine the ingredients, knead it, leave it to proof! XD erm… this is the 100 times i am saying this? *cover mouth* but it’s really just so simple! ABC! made 5 mock bee sting buns! palm size buns. and 4 plain ones =) instead of brushing the bread with egg wash, i replace it with milk. As I’m 100% sure i’ll end up throwing 3/4 of the egg away in the end =X Munch 1 of them =p and it’s really soft and chewy! *grin* so far, i like this sweet bun recipe best!! See the texture below! *point* reduced the baking time to 15mins, as i’m making buns instead of loaf. Practice makes prefect? I’m getting better n better at this!

250 gm bread flour
40 gm icing sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp milk powder

(B)
90 ml water
1 egg
1 ½ tsp instant yeast

(C)
40 gm unsalted butter

For glazing
1 egg (beaten)

For topping
Some raisins, some castor sugar

Steps:

  1. Combine (A) in a mixer. Add in (B) and mix into a dough. Add in (C) and continue to knead until dough is smooth and elastic to the touch.
  2. Keep dough in a big bowl and let it proof, covered with a damp cloth or with clingwrap for 30 mins or till dough rises to double.
  3. Divide risen dough into two equal portions. Knead and shape into balls. Flatten and roll out each ball of dough. Place on a greased tray, spaced them apart. Proof for 45 minutes or until dough in size.
  4. Brush with egg wash and press in raisins on surface. Sprinkle some castor sugar on top and bake in a preheated oven at 190C for 20 minutes. Remove hot bread from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool immediately.
