Coconut Sugar Loaf

Bread making is something I love.  It gives me a deep sense of satisfaction and happiness when I see a beautiful, warm and inviting loaf on the table.  Spreading butter on a slightly warm slice of bread and seeing the butter melt slowly into the bread is so yummy.  I can eat bread like this everyday.

I was watching a programme on tv that featured this Korean man kneading dough for a sweet bread.  After letting the dough rest for a while, he took out the dough and stretched it out.  Wow!  The texture was so elastic and fine.  He says that he is in love with each and every dough that he handles!  So much affection. 

This Roti Gula Melaka recipe I got from Yani of MyR.  It is a very simple recipe and I think she used a breadmaker.  Thanks Yani for sharing this lovely recipe.

Ingredients for a loaf of Coconut Sugar Loaf
  • 140ml fresh milk
  • 1 egg
  • 250g bread flour
  • 40g coconut sugar
  • 10g butter
  • 1 tsp instant yeast

Method:   Mix all the dry ingredients, bread flour, coconut sugar and instant yeast in a mixing bowl.  Add fresh milk and egg.  Mix until a dough is formed.  Last, add butter and knead until the dough is soft and elastic.  Leave it to rest for about an hour.  Shape accordingly and let it rest for another 30mins.  Finally, bake at 175C for 20-25mins.
