Apple Bread

Another lazy day. With the hot, humid and hazy weather, I just want to stay indoors and switch on the aircon.

Waking up before 7am means I finished the housework by 10am, leaving me a lot of time to find things to occupy myself with.

Following up with my last bread post, I used the same recipe again using 75% of the original measurements.

What’s different:

  1. Added tangzhong (10g bread flour, 50ml water), 1 tbsp of acai powder, a sprinkle of black sesame seeds.
  2. Reduced cold milk to 80ml.
  3. Replaced plain flour with wholemeal flour.
  4. Baked at 180°C for 16 minutes.

Managed to make around 9 small buns with 1 tbsp of chopped apples bits as filling.

Looks decent enough. Bread is soft. The apple bits added some sweetness in each bite.

Ham & Cheese Bread

I’ve been getting tired easily and the little one has been pretty cranky for the past few days.

Need to let off some steam and so I put whatever energy I had to knead the bread dough to windowpane stage, after letting the breadmaker do the inital  stage of mixing.

Only did a ham and cheese bread once long long time ago. Doesn’t look that good, but I think it still taste pretty ok for homemade bread.

Wholemeal Bread

This post exists to help me keep track of a recent bake which I shall be using again.

It has been 5 months since my last post and it is not because I was MIA. The reason for my not-so-brief hiatus was because I had moved out of my place and the current kitchen just doesn’t work for me. (Sorry Mum) My tools are either packed in boxes or lying around, somewhere. The thought of setting up the stuff for baking in this hot and humid weather just sap me of whatever little energy I have left.

And so, I spend a lot of my resting time looking in envy at food blogs, saving those recipes for some other day. I know, I’m lucky. =)

Over the weekend, I finally managed to get someone to volunteer to wash up after I’m done. So, I baked some wholemeal bread using this recipe from Christine’s Recipes. I did not take any pictures (too lazy to set up) but I can tell you this recipe works. Tried and tested. It can be sweeter as I replaced the caster sugar with brown sugar, and milk with water. As of now (day 3), there’s only 2 slices of it left.

I think I shall make it again soon. I’ll add some honey this time round, use milk and bake for at least 35 minutes. Oh, and I read that you should let the dry ingredients soak in the wet ingredients for 10 minutes before kneading.
