Michael Klausen from Braserrie Bread said : “I cannot imagine the world without bread”.
I think that statement is so true. My family loves bread, especially hubby. Sari Roti was our breakfast before i knew how to make bread. Now i love making bread eventhough my muscle is aching after kneading (hint to hubby, i want Mr. Bosch… *wink wink*).

I discover a blog that’s full with bread & chiffon cake recipe. My eyes stop at this recipe. More healthy i think. Thank u Kimmy

200 gm bread flour (i used 250 gm)
150 gm wholewheat flour ( i used 100 gm)
40 gm sugar
5 gm salt
6 gm instant yeast
100 gm water roux*
1 egg
110 milk (i used plain yoghurt)
40 gm butter
*Water Roux :
25 gm bread flour
125 ml water
Mix flour and water in a normal sauce pan stirring continuously until it reaches 65ºC (should thickened to a paste at this stage) and when you stir you can see the bottom of the pan.
Remove from heat, leave until lukewarm before using.

Knead all dough ingredients [except butter] to combine. Then continue kneading until dough is soft and smooth [about 7-10 minutes].
Add in butter and continue kneading until butter and dough has combined.  Knead for about 5-7 minutes until smooth elastic and dough is not sticky.
Form dough into a ball. Place in a bowl covered to rest for 45 minutes or double in size
[usually is less than 1 hour depending on temperature of the day].
Punch down rested dough.
Divide into 3 equal portions. Round up into a ball and rest for 15 minutes. Roll and fold into thirds then roll each portion into a rectangle. Roll up like swiss roll and seal the edges well. Place the loaves in greased Pullman’s tin.
Leave too proof until double in size [about 1 hour/ rise to 80% of the baking tin].
Bake in preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 30 – 35 minutes.
Remove and cool on wire rack.

Eating a sandwich of this with cheese filling could make our tummy full but less guilt.
