Well, i've came across an easy recipe from my favourite bread book, "Bake with Yen".
Its original recipe was just a plain raisins bread but my daughter wants some strawberry bread...hmm....really cracking my head. See, i'm a little nervous whenever i make bread..;p
So worry that i'll fail...haha!
Anyway to satisfy her, I'll try out something i never done before. I think all mothers out there will do whatever they can to please their love ones...;)
Then...here it goes...
400g Bread flour
16g Milk powder
10g Instant yeast
220g Cold water
60g Unsalted butter
*Few drops of Strawberry Flavour
~ Mix all ingredients together except butter, raisins and strawberry flavour.
~ Knead the dough about 15 minutes until its smooth, then add butter
~ Continue to knead until gets a smooth and elastic dough. (about 15-20 minutes)
~ Add in raisins and knead gently making sure not to crush the raisins.
~ Transfer the dough into an airtight container and proof for 90 minutes.
~ Divide the dough into 2 portions, add a little of the strawberry flavour in one of the dough and knead gently.
~ Round up the dough and then press down and roll the dough with a rolling pin.
~ Put the strawberry dough on top of the plain raisins dough.
~ Roll it up like a swiss roll, and mould it firmly with your fingertips into a cylindrical shape the length of the baking tin.
~ Proff the dough again for another 90 minutes with the tin cover.
~ Remove the tin cover and brush with egg wash before baking
~ Bake at 200'C for 25-30 minutes until the top turns golden brown.
** The dough must be moulded tightly with an even pressure without damaging the gluten matrix.
** It should be placed in tins with the seam at the bottom to allow the dough to expand fully.
Note here my bread size is rather flat, heehee! This was because i just make half portion of the recipe. As i said i'm so worry that i'll fail...so just half portion for a try.
And the result...yummy! Another success!!
