Mak Chu and Pak Chu came by our place yesterday afternoon. They took us to IOI Mall to watch 2012. Hubby didn't tag along. He went golfing early in the morning. When we reached at the counter, the tickets for 2.30pm and 4.30pm were sold out. We were there at around 1.30pm. We've got no other choice but to choose another movie to watch. We opt for A Christmas Carol. Not a bad choice after all. We enjoyed the movie and this time round, our concentration were fully on the screen. No popcorns munching, no soft drinks sipping...nothing. Why? Because, before we entered the cinema, we've stuffed ourselves at A&W! Thank you so much to Mak Chu and Pak Chu for a lovely day out......
Let's move on to the recipe to share today. Another bread recipe and another recipe from Si Manis Ayin . Yeah right, until I had enough with her blog, then maybe I'll take it easy. Hahaha... Her bread recipes are just so lovely that I can't resist. And oh... Rinn, I bought the latest Chef Alex Goh's Bread Book yesterday. Saw it quite sometime back, but only managed to buy it yesterday. So expect to see some Alex Goh's recipe in between Ayin's okay... *wink* *wink*. Ayin, thank you so much for sharing the recipe with us....
Note to Che Mat Gebu

I added colors to the recipe. I think I have to get myself one proper loaf tin, in order to get a lovely bread loaf. The shape of my loaf is very funny. I've baked the loaf in a homemade tin. Got the tin made at a tinsmith back there in Malawi. And I gave him a slightly bigger measurement for a loaf tin. So it's actually my fault then. I'll be posting the cross-section of the loaf from both sides, left and right as I've rolled it in two different ways for a more colorful effect! Me and colors huh? Hehehe...
Source : Si Manis Ayin
250 g high protein flour (I used all purpose flour)
30 g sugar
20 g milk powder
6 g instant dried yeast
1/2 teapsoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dough softener
2 egg yolks
130 ml fresh milk
30 g butter
Food coloring : pink, yellow, green
Method : (Breadmaker method)
1. Pour fresh milk into the breadmaker pan. Add in salt, sugar and egg yolks
2. Top it with sifted flour, dry yeast, milk powder and dough softener.
3. Set the Breadmaker to Dough function.
4. Once the dough is just combined, add in butter and leave the Breadmaker to continue doing it's job. This process will take about 1 1/2 hour including prooving.
5. Remove dough from BM and punch down to release the air. Cut the dough to 6 portions. Add a bit of food coloring to the dough. 2 doughs for 1 color. Make into round balls and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
6. Roll the dough flat. Place one color on top of the other to form 3 layers. Roll like a swiss roll and place in the well greased tin. Repeat the same procedure with the other 3 balls.
7. Leave to proof till double the size.
8. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 40 minutes or so.
9. Once out of the oven, brush with butter.
Thank you Ila for ordering the tart shells. Hope you like them....
