Joy of Baking

Yahoo..we are now connecting to our Broadband installed on last Friday. Finally we got it after waiting for more than 3 years.
For the last 2 consecutives weekends I did tried my home made bread. The result was so satisfactory, so I would like to share the recipe here. Thanks a lot to my Indesit Oven for realizing my dream!! eheh

Making bread was so easy peasy. But to get the output is quite long. Approximate time duration will take around 3-5 hours. This is beacuse we have to knead the dough, then to rest it, then to shape it, rest it and finally bake it.

First bread is Chealsea Bun.
The ingre:
-500 gm high protein flour/bread flour
- 80 gm caster sugar
- 200 gm butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 packet instant yeast ( I always Mauripan)
- 250 ml milk ( I always used water + milk powder that already available)
- 1 tea spoon salt
For the fillling (mix together):
- 50 gm butter, melted
- 200 gm dried mixed fruits/ raisins
- 100 gm brown sugar
- honey for glazing
Steps:
1- Add yeast to milk, allow to dissolve. Add this mixture to all other ingredients.
2- Knead the dough for 10-15 min. I use my hand to knead it. Set aside for 10 min.
3- Then knead again for 10 - 15 min. Set aside again for 10 min.
4- Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into rectangular shape about 5 mm thick.
5- Spread melted butter. I used brush. Then spronklr the brown sugar followed by the fried fruits.
6- Roll up dought to form a long log. Cuto to 1 inch thick slices and place on the greased baking tray. Cover the bun and rest it for 1 hour.
7- Remove the cover and bake for 16 min at 190 deg. Brush lightly with honey before serving.


2nd recipe is DmnFarra's family's favorite bun, my own recipe to cater the kid's appetite. Really thanks to The Fresh Loaf for inspiring the recipe for me. Since today is my first day of working as I have been away from office for 1 week, attending the Lead Auditor Course, so will share the recipe later ok.

We had a lot of ripe banana that Abah took from Kg Perak. Bored of eating Cekodok Pisang so, yesterday, I baked Banana & Oat Crumble Muffin. Will post the recipe later ok.
Post mortem note:-
1- I have to learn how to shape the bun nicely. Will get the info from books or any websites. Emm..
