Red Bean Loaf


Nothing beats the sweet aroma of freshly baked bread, what more if it's home made  ....... and in a short while you can savour a warm, crusty loaf straight from the oven!


Mix in the sifted flour, salt, sugar and yeast, slowly add in milk, beat for a second, then add in butter.
Dough is ready when it leaves the sides of the mixing bowl.
Cover the dough with a damp cloth, let prove in a warm place till double in bulk.
Dough is ready for shaping when an indentation is left after pressing with a finger.



Roll dough into an oblong, spread the red bean paste in the middle.
Fold up from top and bottom, make sure the paste does not seep through the sides.
Turn over and roll into an oblong again.
Fold up the rolled dough.  Seal the edges.

  

Put roll, seams down, ( shape roll too much till the bean paste is about to be exposed, need patching up, ha, ha), into a lightly greased loaf pan, cover with a damp cloth and let prove again for about 40 mins.
Apply egg glaze onto proved dough and sprinkle on sesame seeds.

  



  

Soft, fluffy bread fresh from the oven with a crispy top  ............. mmmm

  14. Ah... I made two loaves of this today because the first didn't rise well, but even the second one rose very prettily and then shrunk again to the same size when in the oven ㅠㅠ so now I have two loaves of flat bread... but it is still delicious!! Hopefully I will get to try again soon... do you have any idea what might have gone wrong? The second time I proofed the yeast with the sugar and a little water since it didn't rise the first time, and after that the dough rose nicely up until I put the egg wash on after the second rise, when it deflated and never recovered.

  15. I tried to make this twice today! The bread is really delicious but both times it turned out very flat for me :( The first time it didn't rise well so on the second loaf I proofed the yeast beforehand, but even though the second time the dough rose nicely when I added the egg wash the dough deflated to the same height as the first loaf and didn't recover >< Although my bread is really yummy yours looks so soft and fluffy so I will keep trying until I get a similar result!

    1. Thanks for dropping by my blog. May I know where are you from? I'm in Malaysia and we have tropical climate the whole year through, which incidentally is good for proving bread. The yeast that I use is dry yeast. If your weather is cool or cold it's definitely difficult to prove bread. Over here, I just need to cover the bowl with a piece of damp cloth and leave it in the kitchen and it'll rise to around double the size after say, about 50 to 60 mins. You'll need to beat the dough till the whole piece of dough leaves the sides of the bowl when the dough hook is lifted up. Hope this helps.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
