One week March school holiday has ended, I am so glad that the kids are back to school today. Last night, I baked this loaf of matcha white chocolate bread using the breadmaker so that my kids can bring to school for breakfast. I have added my favourite Matcha powder and white chocolate chips to Wu Pao Chun's (吴宝春) champion toast recipe which I tried few days ago. This is my first time trying this combination of Matcha and white chocolate and it turns out great!
Earlier on, Alice Chia has shared with me that we can improve the texture of breadmaker loaf by going through an extra step which allows the dough to knead longer. I am going to share it with you here.
Matcha White Chocolate breadmaker recipe
198g Fresh milk
270g Bread flour
30g Organic wholemeal flour
10g Matcha powder (can replaced with Cocoa powder)
14g Organic raw sugar (can replaced with castor or fine sugar)
1 tsp Salt (about 3g)
1 tsp Instant dry yeast (about 3g)
14g Unsalted butter
100g White chocolate chips *
*updated - to prevent the chocolate chips from melting during bake, please use chocolate chips that will hold its shape during bake. This is what I used, Nestle Baker's Choice ChocBits White Chocolate chips, it is stated on the pack that the chocolate chips will hold its shape when baked.
10克 抹茶粉 (可以用可可粉取代）
14克 有机原糖 (可以用幼糖取代）
1 小匙 盐 (大约3克)
1小匙 即发干酵母 (大约3克)
Breadmaker loaf method 面包机做法:
1. Place all ingredients based on the sequence listed above (except butter) into the breadmaker pan. (Note: Place sugar on the left side and salt on the right side. Make an indention at the centre of the flour and add instant yeast, make sure it does not touch the wet ingredients below.
2。选择面食面团程序 （Kenwood BM250 - 选择程序 '9' ，这个过程只需14分钟就完成）。
3. At the end of program '9', select basic loaf program and add in the butter. (Kenwood BM250 - select program '1'，750g loaf and light crust , this cycle takes 3 hrs and 18mins to complete.)
3。面团搅好了，再选择基本做法程序并加入牛油。( Kenwood BM250 - 选择程序 '1', 750克重，外皮浅色。这个过程需要3个小时，18分钟完成）。
Update：If you are baking the bread in the oven, at the end of program '9', select dough program, add in butter. (Kenwood BM250 - select program '8', this cycle takes 1 hrs and 30 mins to complete.).
更新：如果要用烘炉烤面包，面团搅好了，再选择面团做法程序并加入牛油。( Kenwood BM250 - 选择程序 '8', 这个过程需要1:30分钟完成）。
4. Add in the white chocolate chips at the end of the 2nd kneading cycle. (Kenwood BM250 will sound an alert for adding the ingredients at the timing 2:56.)
4。 等到材料大概揉成一团时，再加入白巧克力豆。 （Kenwood BM250面包机会在2:56时，发出哔哔声，提醒加入。）
5. Remove the dough paddle at the last stage of kneading so that the bottom of the loaf will not have a big hole. (Kenwood BM250 -remove at 1:42)
5。当面团经过最后的搅拌过程，把内锅的叶片取出，面包底才不会有个大洞。（Kenwood BM250 - 取出时间1:42）
6. Shape the dough back nicely after paddle is removed, close the lid and leave the dough to rise。When baking is done, remove the bread immediately from the baking pan to prevent shrinking and sweating. Cool it on a wire rack for about 30 mins before slicing.
7. Store in an air-tight container and consume within 2-3 days as homemade bread does not contain any preservatives.
|Texture is super soft!|
