Recently I bought another bread book on a whim! I had some vouchers to use at Popular bookstore and after buying some story books for my grandsons, I still had a ten-dollar voucher left to spend. After browsing, I chanced upon this bread book by Alan Ooi and immediately I was attracted to the pictures. I love cookery and baking books with lots of illustrations as they allow me to see the end result of the recipes. This is the first recipe that I have tried from the book. I have no regrets so far as it turned out very good -  a milky and soft, moist bread! Ingredients: ( Yields about 966g dough) A 350g bread flour 150g plain flour 30g milk powder (I used Anlene. It's the only type I have) 40g caster sugar 7g instant yeast 8g salt B 250ml cold fresh milk 1 large egg, lightly beaten 60g unsalted butter, soften Evaporated milk for glazing 1. Place ingredients A in a miximg bowl and give it a couple of swirls with a hand whisk to mix. 2. Add milk and egg and mix with a dough hook until it forms a dough. 3. Add butter and continue mixing till all the butter is thoroughly blended in and the dough is smooth and elastic. 4. Remove dough and shape into a ball and place it in the mixing bowl, cover with a damp tea cloth or clingwrap. Rest the dough till it doubles in size. 5. Remove dough and hand knead for 1 minute. 6. Cut the amount required. I divided the dough into 2 portions. 7. Flatten the dough into a rectangular shape and roll like a swiss roll taking care to seal the joints. 8. I placed one portion in a loaf tin and the other on a baking tray. Rest until it doubles in size. 9. Make slits on the top of dough, glaze with evaporated milk. 10. Bake in preheated oven 195deg C for 20 minutes. 11. Remove bread to cool on a rack.
