Sweet BreadFebruary 18, 2008
Pretty bread yea? (^^,) *lick lips* I’m in the bread mood! =X all of a sudden, I crave for some homemade bread~ ❤ who doesn’t love homemade bread? The smell when the bread is proofing *sniff* The scent when it’s baking~ ahhhhhh~ The taste!! The soft, chewy bite when you land yr teeth into a nice warm, freshly baked bread~ *float around* YUMILICIOUS!!
My whole family are all not feeling really good recently, we caught the cold bug~ *sigh* family doctor been making tons of our $$ *boo* since all of our appetite isn’t that good, I decided to go easy and make this sweet bread bun without any complicated fillings 😀 Just simple plain or with raisins sweet buns. Taken from Alex Goh’s bread cookbook~ it calls for cold water, but I replaced it with milk since I have some leftovers in the fridge. 😄 Halve the portion to make 1 small raisins loaf and 7 buns. 😛
240g bread flour
60g plain flour
50g castor sugar
10g milk powder
2 tsp instant yeast
20g unsalted butter
5 gm salt
Black and white sesame seeds
- Mix (A) till well blended. Add (B) to form a dough. Add in (C) and knead until dough is elastic and smooth.
- Gather dough to form a ball and cover dough with cling wrap and let it rest for abt 50-60 mins or double in size.
- Divide dough into portions of 60 gm each. Shape into balls and leave it to rest for abt 10 mins. Roll out dough and wrap with desired fillings. Shape as required and let it proof on lined or greased baking tray for another 50-60 mins or until dough is double in size.
- Apply egg wash (1 beaten egg) or milk on dough and sprinkle toppings as desired on it. Bake dough at 180-190ºC for abt 12 mins or till lightly brown.
I’m very very satisfied! 😀 They so soft that I have trouble removing them of the pan without de-shaping the pretty form! >.< though I did greased it lightly… =/ I ❤ soft sweet bread! 😛
