Mock Bees Sting Bread


It’s been a long long time since I do bread simply becos of the time require, the hot weather (thou perfect for proofing bread but just like today when I begin my bread making, the sun went into hiding again!), my back which I sprained 2 months ago and it’s taking a while to recover since I don’t want to rely on western medicine muscle relexant to help. Well, the smell of the dough is still as still so good! I love that smell 🙂

    everything can be due using the mixer? no need to use hand and knead?

    Hi FSP, I only use the mixer for initial combining of ingredients and kneading. After which I will always hand knead till window pane.

    Hi Cookie! Thanks … except the bread texture is a little too dry (not sure if it’s my fault).

    Hi Felicia, thanks for asking!
