Matcha Marble Red Bean Loaf ~ 抹茶红豆面包

 


I had been surfing the internet for easy bread recipes since my breadmaker decided to call it a day and I found many interesting breadmaking videos on Youtube.   Some recipes do not even require a mixer and the dough had to be mixed and kneaded by hand.  I managed to get tips from here and there and managed to make this Matcha Marble Red Bean Loaf and I'm quite satisfied with the result.  The current hot and humid weather is ideal for breadmaking and anything that requires yeast and proofing.

  6. Place the matcha dough on top of the plain dough, lightly roll till it sticks onto the plain dough.
