Wonderfully Soft Bread

Salam to all ;)

Yesterday morning, I had an early phone call from Aunty Eton.  She said she wanted to drop by my place on her way home from Tauranga to Hamilton.  Since it was raining crazily for summer this year, she decided to chill out at my crib....cheh cheh hehehez chill out....crib......siakss :ppp  Yup yup chill out while waiting for the rain to subside before continuing her journey home with her hb, uncle David.

She told me not to go through any trouble preparing lunch and will arrive here at abt 11am.  While waiting for her, I did a little clean up and forced Jannah to eat her breakfast which she took almost an hour to finish bcos she was so engrossed watching her kid's programme on tv.  I turned the tv off and in my mind thinking, what should I whip up for my guest.  Although Aunty Eton, said not to prepare anything for them, I just can't welcome my guest with plain water. 

So, I made this wonderfully soft bread.  True to its name, just like what Yat is wonderfully soft alright.  Jannah had her lunch which consist of rice, fried fish & cabbage and still managed to eat 2 pieces before aunty and uncle came over and had another 1 when they arrived.  She wanted more when she saw I packed 3 pieces of the leftover bread for aunty.  She even asked me to make them again today....yikkesss next time ok my baby ~~ she doesn't like me calling her baby now.  She's a girl she said ;)

Well, I had lots of time to make the bread, proof it, baked it and even eat it while waiting for them to arrive.  Guess what time did they arrive....????  Jeng jeng jeng.......after 2.30pm!!!  Janji melayu betol!!!  What can I say abt the Malays when they make promises aye??  They are either 5 minutes early or 1 day late ;pppp Ooopppssiiiee, that includes me bcos I fall under the Malay la la la la la la *whistle* *whistle* *whistle*

Ingredients :
310g bread flour
60g cake plain flour (I used standard flour)

40g Nestle CoffeeMate powder (I used milk powder)
115ml skim milk (I used fresh milk)
20g condensed milk
55g caster sugar
3g salt
7g instant yeast
1 egg + 2 egg yolks (I used 2 large eggs)

40g butter (room temperature)

Egg Glaze : 1 egg lightly beaten with 1 tblsp fresh milk

Method :
1. Sieve flour mixture into a large mixing bowl.
2. Make a well in the middle of flour mixture and add in all the rest of ingredients except butter.
3. Mix till a dough is formed and knead in the butter till you get a smooth dough.
4. Proof dough for 50 minutes or till double in size.
5. Divide dough into 12 portions of 60g each and shape it or wrap in the filling. Proof for another 50 minutes or till double in size.
6. Brush with egg wash and bake at 190C for 15 minutes or till cooked.

Note :
I used my breadmaker to do the job for me and sprinkled sugar after glazing the buns.

10.18pm, lights and tv already off.  Jannah and hb already asleep *yawwwnnss* my turn to join them ZZZZzzzzzz.
