White Bread - Bread Machine

I just posted in my other blog about my new toy, a Kenwood Bread Machine which I got a couple of months back but only finally got to "play" with 2 weeks ago. My first attempt, overly ambitious, was a wholemeal mix seeds bread. Turned out disastrous as I didn't have the right ingredients to start with and did not really read the instructions properly on how to use their recipes.

The 2nd try I did it reading the instructions booklet back to front and following their recipe almost to a T. When the bread was done, looked like bread and smells like bread. It is rather pale looking as I selected the light crust option. There are 2 more shades of crust I can select.


When I sliced it, it looked pretty alright to me.


But when I touched it, it looked kind of coarse to me. Mmm.. it didn't have the texture of Gardenia's bread. When I ate it, that is when I could really tell the difference. It did not have that smooth soft texture.


It was like those cheap brandless roti (bread) we use to buy from the kedai runcit (sundry shops). Easier to swallow down if you steam it first or dunk it into your coffee.

Tried to toast it and eat it with my special omelette with tomatoes and lettuce.


Geez, my bread reminded me of a loofah..that people scrub their bodies with :(


I wonder what went wrong... I have discussed this with babe and she is helping me figure this out.. but I would welcome any and all suggestion to help me improve my texture of the bread. I have reproduced the recipe (this is from the Bread Machine) here :-

White Bread (Bread Machine Recipe) - Loaf size 500g
Egg 1
Water 245ml
Unbleached White Bread Flour 350g
Salt 1 tsp
Sugar 2 tsp
Vegetable Oil 2 tbsp
Easy blend dry yeast 1 tsp

Thank you.... :)

Hi Yozora, thanks for dropping by my blog. For me, to make bread I normally use half tepung gandum, and half Hong Kong flour. For the first day the bread is soft, but after that, it turns hard. I guess it has to be the chemical that the roti company use which we dont have. Maybe storing it a tight tupperware will help to keep the bread softer, longer. Thanks.

YozoraNiteSky said...

Hi Min..I love your blogs..both of them :) and thank you for the tip.. definitely very helpful. Btw, I have linked your foodie blog..hope you don't mind. have a great week Min :)

Hi
have actually tried many of the given recipes for the Kenwood BM250 model and they have worked well. The texture is certainly less fine compared to Gardenia for sure - think they add some softener or something; maybe can try for more butter or oil (yet to try that); my bread keeps well in a ziplock without being cut for 3-4 days.
The 1 hour rapid bread is thinker and denser than the 3 hour plus one.
Have even adapted that recipe for the rapid bake to make pandan bread and it has turned out reasonable.
Oh, and I generally do the bigger loafs -

YozoraNiteSky said...

hi wblian. thank you for the comments and the tips. i absolutely agree with you that the commercial breads must have some softener in them. wow.. looks like you have been having a lot of success with your breadmaker.. i will try again over the weekend to make a fruit loaf :D

Hello, I've just read your post and although it's quite old, thought this might help (is from the user manual)

If your bread has Open, course, holey texture:

• Not enough salt used or omitted. (salt helps prevent the dough over proving)
• Too much yeast.
• Too much liquid.

• Assemble ingredients as listed in recipe.
• Measure right amount of recommended yeast.
• Reduce liquid by 15ml/3tsp.

YozoraNiteSky said...

Hi to both of you (anonymous). I am very happy that both of you visited my blog. Feel honored :).

Thank you also for the tip on how to make the bread less holey. Will definitely give your tip a go as I do love bread and if i could get do bake better quality bread, then i can enjoy fresh bread ever so often.

Have a great week :)

Can anyone recommend the top performing Remote Management system for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central remote support manager
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
