I couldn’t add this pix to my earlier post, have some problems updating WP recently.This is the cross section of the bun, with some hotdogs inside.
I have used up my 1kg of bread flour, have bake many many buns by now. I love the feeling of playing with bread dough, it’s light, stretchable and isn’t oily. Am also getting used to the process by now, need to improve on shaping skills thou. With the help of the pretty paper case, the bun look presentable with the height but the hotdog buns come in different length and shape!
Have also read up a little more on bread making and make some plans. Will knead the dough the night before, leave it in the fridge to proof then shape the next morning, proof again and bake. Yesterday night I tried proofing without the help of the oven, and the outer crust wasn’t crisp which usually happen during oven proofing. So as much as I can, I will do the “natural proofing” from now. Bread making is something that cannot be rush, that teaches me to be patient.
And enuf of hotdog buns for now, will try something new next week perhaps corn loaf? I also want to attempt the Chocolate Swird Bread that I saw, it’s so beautiful – if I am successful.
