Banana Bread Loaf ~ 香蕉面包


I have never made banana bread before and when I chanced upon a video on Youtube by Apron demonstrating how this bread is made, I was game to give it a go.  What was the deciding factor that urged me to try this recipe?   Yes, it's the oval shaped cheesecake moulds.  A friend gave me two of these cheesecake moulds and I've hardly had the opportunity to make use of them.  This Banana Bread Loaf do look very pretty baked in this mould and not only that, the bread loaf itself is soft and delicious with a hint of banana fragrance.



Banana Bread Loaf  ~  香蕉面包  
Ingredients
  • 350 gm high protein flour
  • 4 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp milk powder
  • 1 egg about 55 gm without shell
  • 70 ml milk
  • 1/2 Tbsp instant dried yeast
  • 40 gm unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 100 gm mashed banana
  • Oil or butter to brush on the loaf after baked  (I used oil)
Method
  1. Sieve flour  into mixing bowl.  Add milk powder, salt, sugar, mix well with ball whisk.
  2. Add mashed bananas to the flour mixture.
  3. Break an egg into a measuring cup, add milk and whisk well.
  4. Pour this into the flour mixture.  Add in yeast.
  5. With dough hook on low, let it knead, increase speed till the dough leaves the sides of the bowl.  Add in the cubed butter, knead on low, increase speed till dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
  6. Transfer dough to pastry mat, lightly knead to form a ball of dough.  Place dough in a bowl, cover with cling wrap or a damp muslin cloth.  Let rise till double in size, in a warm place, about 1 hour.
  7. Poke the dough with your finger and if the indentation remains, dough is ready.  Punch the dough to knock down some air and knead the dough lightly.  Press out the dough and fold the dough from left to right, then roll out and roll up.  Cut the dough into two pieces, form into a ball, cover with cling wrap and let rest for 15 mins.
  8. Meanwhile, grease two pans (I used two cheese cake pans) with oil or butter.
  9. Roll the dough into an oblong and roll up from the short end.  Tuck in the sides and pinch the seams.  Cut into 10 pieces,  Shape them neatly and place them into the greased pan.  Repeat for the other ball of dough.
  10. Cover with cling wrap or a damp muslin cloth and let rise for another 1 hour.
  11. Bake the loaves in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C and bake for 17 to 20 mins..
  12. Take out the loaves, and brush with butter or oil to give them a sheen.  (I used oil).
  13. Let cool before unmoulding.

Coffee Kahlua Chiffon Cake ~ 咖啡戚风蛋糕

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

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. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.
