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.
