Purple sweet potato bread ~ 紫色番薯面包.

I was mesmerised by the gorgeous colour of this Purple sweet potato bread made with purple sweet potato flour from Japan.   The purple colour is very intense for I thought that there will be some reaction with the yeast, colour wise, that is.  Although the dough did rise double in size on the two stages of proofing but once I removed the cling wrap, it 'deflated' and didn't rise much during baking.  As you can see this bread is of low loaf volume, but the texture is soft and you can taste and smell the sweet potato although it's dense and filling.




Served with a spread of peanut butter!

  5. Punch down dough, lightly knead on a flour dusted counter and roll up into a shape to fit a lightly greased oblong pan. (oblong pan for cheesecake).

  7. Bake in a preheated oven @  200 deg.C for about  35 to 40 mins. till golden brown.  Remove from pan and let it cool on wire rack.
Note:  If you tap the bottom of the loaf, it should sound hollow, a sign that the loaf is done.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
