Used my new canopy mould to bake this flower shaped bread. Used raspberry paste to make the middle portion. The canopy bread mould was an early xmas pressie from Hub. I love the bread mould. Esp Cute bread mould! 😀
Left the bread for second proofing before we went out for dinner. By the time we reached home, the dough expanded and almost ‘overflowed’. Lucky the bread turned out well.
Recipe (modified and adapted from Yichihye)
bread flour 160g
raspberry paste (optional) 1tsp
Combine all dry ingredients except butter. Add the milk until dough is formed. No need to finish the milk. Rub in the butter and knead until the dough is elastic and smooth. Set aside to proof for 60mins. Punch out the air and take 1/3 of the dough to mix with the raspberry paste. Roll out the dough into a single strip. Roll out the original dough into oblong shape. Place the raspberry dough onto the plain dough. Wrap and seal the dough. Set aside in the mould to proof for another 60mins. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 20mins.
