GreenTea Chocolate Mixed Bread for the Aspiring Bakers#8 =)

230g bread flour
70g cake flour
30g sugar
200g milk
1 yolk
1/2tsp salt
20g unsalted butter
4g yeast
10g green tea powder dissolved in 10g boiling hot water
10g cocoa powder dissolved in 10g boiling water

1. Heat up milk and yolk (beating both) to temperature of 40℃.
2. Knead all ingredients together except green tea and cocoa powder.
3. Divide dough into 3 parts: 1 portion plain, 1 portion mixed with green tea, 1 portion mixed with cocoa powder. Will take awhile of kneading to mix well.
5. Prove all 3 portions of doughs separately for 30 - 40 minutes.
6. Punch air out of dough and prove for another 20 - 30 minutes.
7. Knead flatly all 3 portions into rectangular shape. Stack them up layer by layer - plain bottom, followed by greentea & cocoa. Roll along the length till the end (like rolling swiss roll).
13. Place dough into a well-greased loaf pan and cover it with a lid and prove for 50 - 60 minutes in an enclosed area eg. microwave oven. Or simply put a towel over baking tin.
14. Bake at 180℃ for 25 – 30 minutes.

a tad bit burnt at the top =p

I'm submitting this to the Aspiring Bakers #8 for June 2011 =)


  1. Woohoo! This looks yummilicious. Lee and I are thinking of getting a Zojirushi breadmaker - just measure and dump the ingredients in the order the recipes require and the machine will mix, knead and do all the good stuff to bake you a fresh loaf in about three hours!

  2. Have you bought it yet?? =) i wanna see horrr if u really went for it!
