I got this recipe from Daily Delicious. I believe that this is the first time I tried a recipe from her blog. I always see her updates and everything she bakes looks so professional, like it's from a bakery.
I enjoy baking bread more sometimes because it's healthier than cookies and cakes. But, I also despise how the temperature needs to be warm for the bread to rise quickly. I have to rely on my preheated oven, but I'm afraid of drying the dough out. I can't wait until the weather here is warmer.
I made this bread with packing it as lunch for my brother in mind, but he gets hungry easily eating the bread I make, so he prefers bakery bread. Also, my dad has a sweet tooth; so unless the bread I make is sweet, then I end up with bread stuck in the freezer. So I guess I'll be trying more sweet breads from now on.
Fresh from the oven, the bread tastes so soft and bakery-like. After one day, they still maintain the same freshness, although they become a bit drier. To resolve that, all you have to do is re-bake the bread for a few minutes. I only made 7 pieces of bread with this recipe because I wanted larger sized bread.
Braided Hot Dog Bread
Mix together the dry ingredients.
Pour milk in the bowl with the egg until it weighs around 220 grams.
Whisk the egg mixture and add it to the dry ingredients.
Mix together the ingredients.
It's actually not that sticky.
Proof until double in size.
Divide into balls. I originally made 9, but I later decided to combine some dough together.
This time I was able to make flower shaped buns! Unlike last time, when they turned out into caterpillars. The trick is to use more dough.
Let it rise, brush with egg wash and then sprinkle cheese on them.
Look at the texture. :)
