Fun with Bread Baking

This is what I have been doing recently…bread baking. Easy, cost-saving, healthy (to certain extent) and it brings sense of great accomplishment! Its a SKG bread maker I am using, it comes with all the basic functions needed to make homebaked bread. The following is a great recipe I have repeatedly used to make my favourite raisins, cranberries & sesame bread.

If you don’t read Chinese, it reads: 

High protein flour (425g), instant yeast (5g), castor sugar (43g, i put only half), salt (7g), soy milk (290g, i am using v-soy), corn oil (26g) & black sesame (20g), cranberries & raisins (1 cup each)

Steps for baking:

  1. Pour liquids (soy milk & oil) into the bread pan
  2. Place high protein flour on top of the liquids
  3. Dig hole and put sugar, salt & yeast at three different corners. 
  4. Set SKG bread maker to function 1. basic 主食面包 (3 hrs), weight at 1kg, colour setting medium – start

This Cinnabon-taste bread is my latest creation. Recipe: high protein flour (250g), salt (4g), sugar (20g), unsalted butter (30g), milk or water (180ml), instant coffee powder (10g), instant yeast (3g), for the filling: cinnamon powder (4g), sugar (30g) and chocolate chips (50g). Set the weight at 500g. You will need to remove the dough from the bread maker before it completes the fermentation process, roll the dough into a 12cm x 40cm rectangular shape and sprinkle the pre-mixed cinnamon powder & sugar and chocolate chips onto the dough. Roll in into shape before you put it back for further fermentation and baking.

Practice make perfect…enjoy the bread making fun!
