Am so addicted to bread baking as you can see from my bread recipes collection I have posted.
Love to try out a new bread recipe or improvise my old recipes by adding different fillings in the bread every time I bake them.

This week I make Raisin Bread for my family. From what left on the plate, I know they liked it so much.
Baked this Raisin Bread in the afternoon so that they can enjoy with their cuppa. The bread has incredibly soft crusty exterior and well sweetened with raisin. By using water from soaked raisin, it has natural beautiful color. My family eaten them as it is without slathering anything on top.
We can't wait for the bread to cool, my son is pestering me to cut it up. Without wasting more time, I take this opportunity to shoot the photos before it was gone!
HOW TO MAKE RAISIN BREAD
Yield : 1 loaf
2 cup all purpose flour
1.5 tsp instant yeast
1 tablespoon milk powder
2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup hot water
50 g melted butter
1 egg lightly beaten (keep some egg yolk for topping)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisin
Soak raisin in hot water for 1 hour. Drain and retain the liquid.
In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, milk powder, yeast and salt
Combine melted butter, water and egg.
Pour water mixture into dry ingredients.
Transfer dough onto floured surface and knead by hand for 10 minutes or using a mixer or bread machine until smooth and elastic. Add 1-2 tablespoon of flour if it is too sticky.
Place the kneaded dough into a greased bowl, cover and let rise until double 1.5 to 2 hours.
Punch dough down, roll into rectangle, sprinkle soaked raisin over the dough. Roll up tightly and forms into a log, tucking the ends as you roll..
Place dough into a loaf pan and let rise again for 1-1.5 hours. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven at 190 C.
Brush top evenly with egg wash (egg yolk + 1 tablespoon milk) and bake until golden brown for 25-30 minutes.
After 5 minutes remove bread from the pan, transfer onto rack to cool.
