1st Attempt On Bread Making

Today I tried out my 1st attempt in bread making. I never wanted to learn how to bake a bread cos I hate eating bread. In the morning, I can't even force myself eating a slice of bread unless there is no other things to eat.

Dearie Suki has been bugging me for quite some time and asked me to learn how to bake a bread cos he is a bread lover and both the kids loves bread too. He even mentioned that he will get a breadmaker for me but I told him not to cos there is no space in the kitchen for the breadmaker. Anyway, how often will I use the breadmaker and I bet it will be end up, used once and chuck it at the side.

This morning started making the Hokkaido Milkly Loaf as early as 6.30 am while waiting for the part time maid to come. I followed the recipe from Happy Home Baker. Kneading the dough is a good exercise and I think I knead for 1/2 an hour using both my hands and now my hand sakit already. Really need 'Kung Fu' for the kneading part.

After kneading, the bread dough is leave to proof for 1 hour until the size of the dough doubled up. But for mine, it takes 2 hours. I don't know why mine need so long or maybe the weather in the morning is a bit cloudy and cold and not hot, therefore it needs a long time for proofing.

I divide the dough into 4 portions and rolled it up and arrange on a square baking tin cos I don't have a loaf tin. Brush the top with some milk and bake it in the oven for almost 50 minutes at 170 DC.

While baking, you can smell the nice bread aroma. Once done I can't wait to see how it looks like. To my surpise, the Hokkaido Milky Loaf turned out so nice. The top part is golden brown and shinning. The inside part is soft and fluffy and with a bit of sweetness ( I think this could be the whipping cream and the sugar in the recipe )



Dearie Suki woke up at about 11.30 am, came to the kitchen and asked me what I baked today. Obviously I am telling him, I am baking his favourite BREAD. After having his lunch, he can't wait to try a slice and after trying he is quite impressed with my 1st attempt. He was telling me a moment ago, he is going out to the 'Kopitiam' to buy a can of Kaya back to spread on the bread.

His next request to me is to make him a Hotdog Bun. Wah, I think from today onwards I fall in love making bread and going to search for recipes from the web. But , I still hate eating bread!
