3 loaves and nutella filled rolls


nice and soft

Recipe I used:

I used strong bread flour and normal full fat milk. the recipe from this lady: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99vcNlVucV0

If kneading by hand:

The kneading method I followed was this fork, slap and fold method.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXV8mayG3W0. it took about 10mins for the dough to reach the the window pane stage.

Tang Zhong Tip

Sieve the flour, whisk the flour and water until smooth before heating it.


The first time I tried this I failed miserably as I did not know how to knead the bread by hand.  I really wanted to master the bread without having to purchase a bread machine or a kitchenaid.  After some research I found some video’s showing how to knead sticky bread so I tried the bread again using the recipe from below video.  I was amazed, after 10 minutes of kneading the dough was ready.  I was so happy with the end results, my boys and hubby munched up all the bread before it had time to cool.

I now own a bread machine which makes life alot easier.  I filled the bread with nutella as above and coconut and sugar.  I have also used this bread to make Hong Kong sausage rolls, gai mai bao and fresh cream, jam and coconut fingers.
