First post 2012 - Sweet Bread
Hows the New Year so far?? back to normal? hehe.. phewwww.. the kids are in school again.. mom and dad back in the office.. stay home mom like me is back to normal routine.. niceeee.. Sonia will only start school on Friday so in the meantime my routine is per normal.. come Friday i will be a little busy in the morning sending her and picking her up fm school at 1pm which gives me little time to bake and taking pics of my goodies during day time.. :o(
So far since the clock strick 12 midnight.. i hv been able to learn how to "sit"? i dont really like to sit down and watch telly.. to me its just a waste of time but for some reason since 2012.. i managed to watch two movies.. a malaysian movie and also hindustani movie.. both movies made me cry.. cheettt!! i shouldnt hv watch it but i had to since lots hv been talking abt this malaysian movie .. "Ombak Cinta" .. Anyway it was worth my effort to "sit" down for a change since it got me all mellow jello after that hahaha
So ok.. this sweet bread was baked this morning.. I had planned to cook early and baked this bread so that Hairi can hv it bef he goes to school.. today he sits for his A Maths paper and am praying hard that he will be able to answer each and every question in his exam paper.. his next paper will be Physics.. all the best son.. u know u hv our support and our prayer..
500g high protein flour - bread flour
11g instant yeast
150g water roux
1 egg yolk
100ml fresh milk
1 tsp salt
400g cheddar cheese
50g caster sugar
Mix flour, sugar, water roux, eggs and yeast
Add in fresh milk a little at a time and continue to knead
Add butter and salt, knead again until pure elastic
Leave the dough for an hr or so or till it double in size
Divide dough into several balls .. each ball weighs around 70g
Flatten each dough and add in fillings and roll it into balls again
Let ur dough stand for 10mins or till it doubles in size
Brush dough with egg wash and bake it in a preheated oven of 175C for 15mins
Stir butter and sugar with whisk.. add in grated cheddar cheese.
Note: I didnt use cheddar cheese as filling but instead used red bean paste since that is Hairi's fav filling.
