Hokkaido Pandan Milk Loaf - Straight-Dough Method 直接发酵法

I have missing in action from blogger for more than a month, too busy with work and children that I dun even have time to bake or touch my laptop. Okay lah I must admit, the lazy bug is clinging tightly on me as well that making me become very lazy too hahaha....

Well, if not because of Joceline, the host for September Little Thumb Up, I think I will continue to let spiders crawling around in my blog lol. "Jess, wake up, die die must show some support to Joceline!" I tell myself :p. I wish I am able to squeeze sometimes to do some blog hopping, soon, so wait for me ya heeheehee...

This recipe was modified from Hokkaido Milk Loaf.

Ingredients :
270g bread flour
30g cake flour
20g milk powder
5 pandan leaves
150g cold milk
80g whipping cream
40g brown sugar
3g salt
5g instant yeast 

Method :
1. Take 30g cold milk and blend with pandan leaves and squeeze out the juice.
2. Mix the pandan milk juice with the balance 130g cold milk and mix well.
3. Mix everything together and mix until a dough form and knead until smooth and elastic.
4. Add raisins. Mix until well-combined.
5. Pour some oil into a bowl and let it spread around the bowl. Put the dough in and put plastic wrap over top of the dough. Then let the dough complete the 1st round of proofing, about 1 hour or until double in size.
6. Transfer the dough to a clean floured surface. Deflate and divide into 3 equal portions and roll them round. Cover with cling wrap, let rest for 10 mins at room temperature.
7. Roll out dough in longish oval and roll up like making swiss roll, can repeat the process for 1-2 times.
8. Place inside a greased loaf tin for 2nd proofing for 45  mins.
9. Pre-heat oven and bake at 180C for 35 mins or until turn brown.
10. Remove from the oven and transfer onto a wire rack. Let cool completely.

The bread has very mild pandan taste and fragrance, however can't see much green color on the bread.
