WholeMealBread1

Using recipe from Malaysian Institute of Baking (MIB), i had a go at making wholemeal bread using bread machine as i only have a small hand mixer only suitable for cake mixing and definitely not for bread making, putting all wet ingredient into the bread machine, and topping with all dry ingredient

WholeMealBread2

weighing butter

WholeMealBread3

take the dough out from machine, and shape it into a pullman loaf pan

WholeMealBread4

baked

WholeMealBread5

looked wet and not brown enough

WholeMealBread6

whole loaf

WholeMealBread7

cross section, overall i find using bread machine may not have developed the gluten network enough, it is still okay though, can make again.

Bread1stTry_1

Here are 8 tries (in June and July this year) of bread making using Cornell bread machine bought on promotion for only RM299. Above is first try, i think it is some flour mixed with water and left it to autolyse for few hours before adding in flour.

Bread1stTry_2

mix in flour

Bread1stTry_3

then put on ‘dough’ function of the bread machine

Bread1stTry_4

Roll out dough individually and put on slices of cheese

Bread1stTry_5

done, looks ok but taste so dry and not nice at all

2nd try:

Bread2ndTry_6

Above is quite good recipe of using a “roux” mixture. The roux mixture being 100g of bread flour mixed with 70g of boiling water, add more boiling water if the roux mixture is dry.

Bread2ndTry_7

made into roll with sweet potato filling

Bread2ndTry_8

looks nice

Bread2ndTry_9

Bread3rdTry_10

Bread3rdTry_11

Bread3rdTry_12

forgot what is the difference between 2 recipes…

Bread3rdTry_13

This is the more “liquid” recipe whereby the dough is very soft and more moisture

Bread3rdTry_14

the left side is the one with less moisture and the individual rolls are less glued to each other

Bread3rdTry_15

done

Bread3rdTry_16

both bread are very soft, too soft for my liking though, one of it is very much “kuih” texture

4th try

Bread4thTry_17

making sausage roll using recipe using “roux” again

Bread4thTry_18

Bread8thTry_27

top with more mix cheddar cheese and baked in a pullman loaf tin

Bread8thTry_28

Below the complete bread recipe (roux technique) which i used
Basic Sweet Bread dough from Alex Goh “Magic Bread”

A
100g bread flour
70g boiling water

B
300g bread flour
100 plain flour
80g sugar
6g salt
20g milk powder
9g instant yeast Put on TOP

C
175g cold water
60g cold egg (I replaced with cold water)

D
60g butter (When all ingredients come together, pour in the melted butter, continue kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic)

1) Add boiling water from A into flour, mix until well blended to form a dough. Cover and set aside to cool. Keep it into fridge for at least 12 hrs. (I only left it in fridge for 1 hour)

2) Mix B until well blended. Add in C and knead to form rough dough. Add in A and knead till well-blended.

3) Add in D and knead to form elastic dough

4) Let it proof for 40mins or longer till it double in size, roll into loaf, Brush whisked egg on surface. Bake in a pre-heated 180C (356F) oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until turns brown. Remove from the oven and transfer onto a wire rack. Let cool completely.

5) Else divide the dough, mould it round. Rest for 10mins, then shape into buns/loaves, let rise until doubled and then bake at 350F.

SodaBread1.JPG

Recipe taken from Sweet Amandine, soda bread which uses baking soda as leavening instead of yeast, and no fermentation waiting period needed, surprisingly nice aroma, should be from the yogurt, for a dense bread, this is quite ok, worth a try. Mix everything just till incorporated and bake till done.

SodaBread2.JPG

whole tub of yogurt is used!

SodaBread3.JPG

yoghurt

SodaBread4.JPG

SodaBread5.JPG
