Bread-fast

It's been a long long time since I last baked breads! Did a check on my bread post, it was a month ago! Goodness! No wonder my bread flour looks like having some "visitors"! Hahaha! As I had some shredded cheddar cheese left in the fridge, I thought I'd better finished it up before it turns mouldy! One of the easiest and the tastiest breads for me will be the cheese and sugar bread. I usually stick to Baking Mum's Sweet Bread Dough.




Recipe:
Ingredients
A)
240g bread flour
60g plain flour
55g castor sugar
12g milk powder
5g instant yeast
5g salt

(B)
1 egg
150g cold water

(C)
30g unsalted butter

(D)
approx 100g shredded cheddar cheese
approx 30g fine sugar

Method:
1. Mix (A) till well blended. Add (B) to form a dough. Add in (C) and knead until dough is elastic and smooth.
2. Gather dough to form a ball and cover dough with cling wrap and let it rest for abt 50-60 mins or double in size.
3. Divide dough into 12 portions. Shape into balls and leave it to rest for abt 10-15 mins.
4. Divide each dough into 3 (or 4), roll it and plait it up.
5. Let it proof on lined or greased baking tray for another 50-60 mins or until dough is double in size.
6. Apply egg wash (1 beaten egg) on dough and sprinkle (D) shredded cheese and sugar generously on it. Bake dough at 190ºC for abt 12 mins.

Wow! your bread looks yummy! Can I use cheesekaft instead of cheddar cheese for this recipe?
May I know what model of oven are you using? It look quite similar to the one I'm using. I found the oven is quite difficult to be cleaned after roasted meat or fish. May I know how you normally clean it?

Hi Grace,
I would think that using cheesekraft the cheese will melt faster and stick to the bread. You can try, I would think it's not a problem, but you might have to use more so that it has cheesy taste if you like cheese.
I'm using Delonghi oven. But can't remember the model now. Yes, it's quite difficult to clean. That is why I seldom grilled food. I baked more often. Even when I seldom grilled, there are also stains on the stainless steel walls. Not easy to clean though. I read somewhere, it advise to use Soda Bicarbonate to spray on the oven walls to get rid of the oil and stains. You can try it. I've not bought the bottle sprays, so haven't tried it yet. At most I use a damp cloth to clean it only. Sorry, not of a help to you. :<

Thank you very much for sharing the recipe. I think we are using the same model of oven. That's really something new to me of using soda bicarbonate to clean the oven. But do you know how to spray the Soda bicarbonate to the oven?

Hi,
I read it from the Baking Soda that I bought. But I've not tried it. Try this website: http://www.bakingsodabook.co.uk/baking_soda_book_your_body_page_8.shtml.
This is the extract:
To clean out your oven, make a paste of baking soda and vinegar for a fast acting powerful cleaner that tackles the worst baked on stains.

Another site to find information on using baking soda to clean is: http://www.ehow.com/how_2054508_clean-baking-soda.html

Hope this helps! :) Let me know after you've experience. Maybe I'll try this weekend.

Hahaha! It's really that effective that you have to love me?? Very amazing. What did you do? Aiya! Should've taken photo of the oven before and after the baking soda! Really become brand new look arh? Must tell me exactly what you did, so I'll follow suit... Kekekeke...

kekekeke... First of all, I mix some baking soda and water to make a thick paste. Then clean it with a toothbrush. Don't need to brush too hard, and brush gently. My oven was quite dirty as I often roasting and grilling. Some part was horrible hard to clean, so I leave the soda paste for 10 minutes then start to brush. It works! After all the brushing, clean with a clean damp towel, then another clean dry towel. Once again, you are a great blogger! muakkk!!!

Woah-hahaha! I'm all soaked with all that *muakking*! Luckily it works, otherwise I'll be a sinner. Or I'll be cursed! Hahaha... So you can grill and roast more often now right?
Btw, do you find our oven a bit too powerful for the temperature? I also over-baked the cakes with the temp indicated in the recipes. My colleague told me to turn down by 20C. Do you think so? Also, when you baked cake, do you use the lower 2nd rack (top down 3rd rack)? Thanks for your time! ;) You're also a wonderful blogger!

kekeke... yea I can roast and grill more often now as I'm quite lazy to cook. I always simply marinate the meat and vege then straight into the oven. But I think it's better to clean once the oven cool down, don't leave it over night otherwise, hard work!
So far, I found our oven had the best temperature control system compare with others table top oven. It's very depeands on what we bake, for example cheesecake I would normally use lower rack, sponge cake or cookies or muffins on middle rack. I found the temperature would be very high if I turn it to "bake" but if I use the "fan oven", the temperature looks quite good especially for sponge cake, chiffon and cheesecake. For cookies, I normally uee "bake". Happy to chat with you here! Happy Baking!

Thanks a lot for advise. I did the soda clean this morning. Put too much soda, spent my whole morning trying to clean the soda out from my oven! Hahaha... the result of being "greedy" for cleanliness! But it sure was damned effective!

Wow! Looks like I did the complete opposite from you! For all normal cakes and baking, I use the "bake" function. For cookies, I use the fan function. Good grief! No wonder my cake is always over-burnt when followed exact instructions!! I will need to try using your method. I finally found some1 using the same oven as me, at least can discuss! Yippee! I shall try again next time. Thanks a lot for your time and advise. Cheers to our new blogging friendship! :)

Yea.. for the oven, I shall say we've to put some effot to clean it. I put a piece of aluminium foil at the bottom after my first attempt of cleaning, so I could just pull the foil out once there are lots of bits then replace a new one.
Try using "fan" system to bake chiffon cake or sponge cake. I hope you could see the differents. Nice chatting with you. Cheers!
