Done it!

My family love bread. We can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But having this idea hibernating in my mind, at long last, I braved through fear to attempt bread baking. Even though I owned a heavy duty mixer for at least 2 years, I never tried using the hook beater to attempt dough making. Don't ask me why, perhaps I was too coward to face failure. Bread machine as since depreciate in cost, from a thousand to below a hundred. Then again, hubby doesn't agree to have a bread machine. It takes about 8 hours to bake a loaf! His reason: it is more cost effective as well as convenient to buy a loaf from the bakery. This recipe is taken from Florence whose recipe always proof to be a success. Here is my Cinnamon Raisins Soft Bread. Photobucket What you need for this basic dough 310g bread flour 60g cake flour 40g Nestle CoffeeMate 115ml skim milk 20g condensed milk 55g castor sugar 3g salt 7g instant yeast 1 egg + 2 egg yolks 40g butter (room temperature) Method: Sieve flour mixture into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle of flour mixture and add in all the rest of ingredients except butter. Mix till a dough is formed and knead in the butter till you get a smooth dough. Prove dough for 50 minutes or till double in size. Divide dough into 12 portions of 60g each and shape it or wrap in the filling. Prove for another 50 minutes or till double in size. Brush with egg wash and bake at 190C for 15 minutes or till cooked.
