Super soft bread - plain white loaf, cranberries white loaf and raisin wholemeal loaf

My new toy, Panasonic Bread Maker BMS105-T. I will have another post on this Panasonic latest model, hopefully. And in this post, I will share my bread maker recipes experiments.

The first recipe that I picked was super soft white loaf, programme 2, without milk and egg.

250g unbleached high protein flour
1 tbsp ghee
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp sea salt
180ml cold water
1/2 tsp yeast

And you can see that it turned out to be a very nice loaf! The smell of freshly baked bread filled the entire house.

We waited for 30 minutes(for it to cool down) and cut it into 6 thick slices. Sorry for the lighting. If you see yellow lighting, the bread was done at night. :p It was very soft and fluffy, with the fragrant of ghee. It was even good just on its own. I passed one to the friend who helped me to purchase this bread maker. She likes it and she said she is going to get one bread maker too. :)

Next, I tried white loaf with cranberries, using the same super soft white loaf programme. The ingredients are the same, except I placed 30g of dried cranberries in the dried fruits/nuts dispenser. I was not too generous with the dried cranberries(the dispenser can hold up to 100g, but I only put 30g). But it was not too little too, as you can see from the picture. I passed 1 piece to my colleague and she said it was nice. I hope she was not trying to be polite. :)

Then I tried wholemeal raisin loaf. Same recipe same programme, just substitute 50g unbleached high protein flour to unbleached wholemeal flour. I put more raisin this time, 50g. As expected, wholemeal loaf turned out to be smaller.

The texture was more dense. If you do not like soft fluffy white loaf, then this might suit you. With the raisin, again it can be eaten on its own. I passed 1 piece to my colleague too, but did not receive any feedback from him. Will try to make this wholemeal loaf again as I still have big pack of wholemeal flour.

Next, I will try black sesame loaf and pandan loaf. Wish me luck!
