Soft Bread

Still in the mood of baking with yeast during this heat-wave time, I made some bread for my nephew's and my niece's breakfast and snack. I filled the inside with some bananas, cheese, chocolate, and leftover pineapple jam. It was just a classic soft bread that reminds me when I was a kid. Bread is very popular in Indonesia. Bakeries compete with each other to make the softest and lightest bread possible with all kinds of filling. Unlike today, when I was growing up, there wasn't as much flavor as it is today. Bananas, cheese, chocolate were by far the most common and the most popular flavor for bread. I had it for breakfast and during lunch break at school.



The picture may not be great but the texture of this bread is really soft, it just reminds of old days. It even stays soft until the day after. I don't' think I did a good job glazing them. I used egg yolk and honey for the glaze. I melted the honey in the microwave because it was almost solid and it was still way too hot when I mixed it with the egg yolk, so the yolk just cooked a little by the heat of the honey. That's why you can see some dark spots here and there on the bread.

It's gonna be back to normal weather again this week, around mid 70 F. It's great, but I guess the next bread will have to wait until summer is officially here. It's just around the corner though. I'm so excited to make different kinds of bread.

Saya rasa emang madu membuat masak kuning telur deh walaupun madunya berada di suhu ruangan. Jadi inget STMJ (susu-telur-madu-jahe) :-)
Forgive me if I'm wrong...

Hi Rea,

The recipe is the soft bread recipe from NCC. So, I think you're pretty familiar with it :)

Hi llk. Sorry for the late reply, I just saw your comments today. I tried to view your profile to find your email address, but it didn't let me for some reason. can you just email me instead?
No, I don't post all my recipes online. Most of the multi-layered cakes are my experiment, so usually I won't have a complete recipe for the whole cake. I will try to post more recipes on my blog though.
