Once again, I turned to my one of my favourite recipes blog:
and found this awesome bread recipe!
Recipe adapted from
*I have halved the recipe to test if this recipe works for me.
This bread is baked using my Song-Cho Breadmaker.
135g bread flour
15g cake flour
2 + 1/2 tbsp skim milk powder
20g fine sugar
1/3 tsp salt
62.5g fresh milk
1/2 tsp yeast
How to do:
1. Pour the ingredients into the bread barrel according to the sequence above from bottom up except for yeast.
2. Make a well in the bread flour and put the yeast into the well.
3. Select menu '5. Sweet' on the breadmaker, set color & loaf option & press start.
The original recipe will make 700g loaf but since I halved the recipe, theoretically, it should bake a 350g loaf. Anyway, I select 1.0LB under loaf option.
I guessed I could have just leave the breadmaker to do its job and have a nice little loaf. But my itchy hands just have to play around with the recipe.
So I waited till the breadmaker completed its Rise2 and pause the machine, took out the dough, portioned into 4 equal portion.
I stuffed a piece of hazelnut chocolate into the middle each portion and shaped it round, put it back into the breadmaker, unpause the machine and let it continue with Rise3 & Bake.
I have to say.. This recipe is really good! Baking in breadmaker.. not so good... hahaha..
As expected, baking in the breadmaker developed a rather thick crust.
But the recipe itself produces very soft and fluffy bread. The best part is that it stayed fluffy even till the next day.

Also, due to the reduce ingredients, kneading using the breadmaker is not so ideal as the mixing blade tends to drop out so I need to pause the machine and reattached a few times. So I guessed there's a minimum weight criteria for the ingredients in order to use the breadmaker efficiently.
To conclude, I am very happy with the success of this recipe but I will probably bake using the oven the next time.
