I love the scent of a fresh loaf of bread early in the morning. However, making bread can take up a lot of time, not to mention that it is also very tedious too. The fact that I am going through my internship right now, it is even harder for me to find time to bake. Luckily, I was introduced to the Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 recently and it was such a fun experience making different types of bread so easily.

The Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 has up to 13 auto menus for you to chose from, today I will be using menu 8 to make this recipe. Menu 8 allows me to manually add the filling into the dough just before baking. You could use menu 8 to make Hong Kong Pineapple Bread, Cinnamon Roll, and even more!

 I got challenged to make a simple yet elegant bread after I was told by my friends that bread maker is a waste of money as it only makes boring old-school white bread and nothing else. This recipe requires minimum effort with the help of the bread maker. All I needed to do was to add in all the ingredients into the pan, set the setting and let it do its job. When it was time to add the filling in the dough, the machine beeped to inform me that the dough is ready for my own creation. I quickly took it out to roll it into a rectangular shape, spread the filling, roll it into a log and tie it into a knot to reveal the beautiful swirl.

If you are just making a bread with nuts or raisins, simply just put the filling into the raisin dispenser.

Japanese Butter Roll (Crescent Roll) バターロールのレシピ

IMG_9578_edited

If you are looking for a soft, fluffy yet slightly chewy perfect white bread recipe. This post is for you.

You may spread some butter and jam on these Japanese Butter Rolls, make it into sandwiches or just eat it plain. It’s a basic bread dough that you should master it. Once mastered, you could experiment and make different variations.

Sure you say this looks like Crescent Roll, but I beg to differ. (Well, maybe you could say it’s my version of Crescent Roll)

Recipes of Crescent Roll often result in a more dense and compact bread. Which, I think it’s not look appealing. Basically, not a good bread dough.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThis is beauty. After all the hard work, you will sure feel good that you made your own bread! It reminds me of buttery flaky croissants. I am dying to try to make my own croissants, but the weather in Singapore is killing me. I doubt the butter is going to fold in probably. (oh well, I think I’m still going to try it out…)

Ain’t they gorgeous? 

IMG_9584_editedThey are good for a few days. Since they are homemade, they will start to stale. Just use it to dip curry gravy, make it into croutons or bake some bread pudding.  But I doubt it will last that long. My family loved it so much that they will take one whenever they pass by the basket. It’s just this good!
