Rainbow sandwich loaf and gifts..彩虹吐司与礼物

This is a interesting bread, a Rainbow Sandwich Loaf. Having plain white toast can be quite bore sometimes. Have a change of color and taste; green tea is added for the green color, cocoa powder is added for chocolate color and a plain portion. The three color dough is plaited and baked into 12oz sandwich loaf but i make it into three mini open face loaves.

~ Rainbow Open face Sandwich loaf

彩虹吐司, 不知道为什么叫彩虹..呵呵
好喜欢这彩虹吐司,有我爱的绿茶和可可香味. 有时候吃多了白吐司,来个不同的口味也很有新鲜感. 原本的食谱是做成一条12安士的吐司; 我做成3条小吐司.

 ~I think this mini sandwich loaf is a little under baked because the bottom is not brown enough... But i am lucky, it is cooked. 

 ~Slicing this bread is full of surprises..Why?? Look at the color combination of each slices is different..:) Texture of this toast is a bit chewy, soft and fluffy. Stay soft even the next day. 


Rainbow Loaf
recipe source: 'Handmade Breads with' a little adjustment
'手感烘焙 ; 台湾经典面包'
method: straight dough
制作方式 :直接法
Original recipe baked into a 12oz pull man loaf, lidded pan 
(i baked into 3 mini open face loaves **)

A) 500g bread flour
        35g castor sugar
        10g salt
        15g milk powder
         5g instant yeast
        50g egg white
      100g fresh milk
      200g water (i used cold water)
B)     50g unsalted butter
C)     10g cocoa powder
          7g green tea powder
To do:
  • Place all ingredient (A) in a mixing bowl. Use a stand mixer with medium speed to mix and knead into a dough. Part of the dough might stick at the side or base of the bowl. Once a smooth dough is formed. 
  • Turn stand mixer speed to low, add in (B) continue to knead until the butter is complete mixed in. Turn to medium speed and knead dough until it is smooth and elastic.
  • Rolled the dough round and place in a greased(with olive oil or canola oil) mixing bowl. Covered with cling wrap, proof for 60 minutes or double its size. 
  • Take out the proofed dough. Divided into 3 parts. One part add green tea powder knead to mixed well, one part add cocoa powder knead to mixed and the last part is left plain. 
  • Divide green tea dough into 3 equal parts; roll round and cover with cling wrap. Do the same with the cocoa dough and the plain dough. Leave to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Roll green tea dough out flat with a rolling pin and rolled back into a swiss roll tightly. Do the same to the rest of the doughs.
  • Take 3 different color rolled long(swiss roll) dough put them laying parallel as in the pictures below*.
  • Preheated oven at 180c, bake for 20 minutes. (i bake 2 loaves for the first round on low rack. The other loaf i put in the refrigerator, cover with cling wrap while waiting for the first 2 loaves to bake) 
*Below is the picture of doing raisin plait mini loaf, I just want to show how to do the plait..^^
*以下的图片是制作葡萄干辫子面包的步骤 .可让大家参考用.

~round dough have rolled into long swiss roll..搓长条~

~Start by putting the top parts of these three rolls together and plait..把3条长条头部放在一起,开始打辫子~

~making sure the top does not lose off..要把头按紧,不可让它松开~
~keep repeating plaiting until the end then press to seal it and put into a greased loaf pans, its done. Last proofing time (about 60 minutes), until you can see the dough fill up the loaf pan about 80%-90% full.
..一直把辫子打到尾再按紧放进抹了油的土司模就可以了, 让面团最后发酵(约60分钟), 至膨胀至模型8-9分满的高度.~

**mini loaf pan of mine is 8cm x 19cm x 8cm

 为什么说是缘分呢? 她人(现在)在台湾;我在Miri(东马)

fb认识是因为大家都爱烘焙, 常常分享彼此的作品.

就在上次她回来Miri玩. 她带了两本好书送给我...好喜欢啦:D

Nana and i are from the same 'kampong' but we knew each other through fb.  We both love to bake, eat and share our baking fun together..:p One day i changed my profile picture to a picture of my hubby and me. Guess what?? When she saw us...
My hubby is her primary school classmate!!!
Can you imagine how close the distance can be if you are in the internet..Just like you are staying next door to me..:p Althought Nana is married to Taiwan and i am in Miri (east malaysia) we still can communicate and get to chat and share our thoughts of baking very often through fb and other apps. We becomes really great friends..:D
This are the gifts she brought back from Taiwan for me on her last visit back to Miri.
To thank her, I made this Rainbow Sandwich Loaf from the book ..^^

  17. Beautiful colours.
    if i wish to bake in one big loaf, what is the size of the pan? ?x?x?cm

    1. Hi Ellie,
      If you want to make into a big loaf you can use a loaf pan with this size 11cm x 11cm x 20.5cm ( this is the only big Pullman pan that I have so I gave you this size :p) with this size I add 550-600 gms of the dough into the Pullman pan. Proof it until it filled up 75% of the pan and bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 35-40 minutes. Tenth the top with aluminum foil if it is turn dark too quickly.

      You may have some extra dough left, I suggest you can roll them round and make into bread rolls. Place on a baking tray proof until double it's size and bake at 180C for 15-18 minutes.

    2. Thanks Ellie for visiting my blog.
      Hope I have give you a idea of what size of bigger loaf pan to use.
      Happy Baking!

    3. mui mui, thanks for your reply. You are really helpful. definitely will try this out. Have a good day!!

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
