Seaweed With Pesto Bread Loaf

Hey, it's World Bread Day 2011! Last year I've contributed something fun (here). This year I'm going to contribute another fun flavour of bread for the special day and of course, healthy as well. Seaweed is so popular all around Asia and it's such a nutritious food to consume by all ages. By combining seaweed in bread will helps those who doesn't like the particular greens to consume it easily. And with an extra touch of pesto will definitely keep you awake the whole morning.

Bake Bread for World Bread Day 2011
Here we go!
Ingredients for bread dough (without egg) :
(A) sourdough ingredients :
100gm bread flour
60ml water
1/4 tspn yeast
(combine all ingredients and mix well, then leave aside for 12 hours)

(B) gelatinized dough ingredients :
100gm bread flour
70ml boiling water
(slowly add hot water into flour and mix to form a soft dough, then keep refrigerated)

(C) Main dough ingredients :
350gm bread flour handful of dried seaweeds
2 tspn yeast
1 tspn salt
3 tbsp milk powder
220ml water
40gm butter
 Method :
(1) combine all ingredients (C) into a big mixing bowl, except butter.
(2) add in all sourdough and gelatinized dough (tear into pieces), mix to form a soft dough.
(3) knead dough till smooth and then leave aside for an hour or untill double in size.
(4) once it's ready, punch dough to release air and knead till smooth.
(5) leave dough to rest for 10mins before roll out flat.
(6) spread on some pesto paste and roll it up into swiss roll.
(7) seal dough nicely and then place it to the tray, leave to rest for another hour or till double in size.
 (8) make a few cuts on top of the dough and then bake at preheated oven 190-200'C for about 35-40 mins.

Finally, remove bread from tray after cooling for 5 mins then slice bread after completely cool.

Here, I have two different texture of bread with almost the same recipe. Did you notice the difference between the top & the bottom pictures of the bread slice?

The bottom bread slice contains of more bubble holes and the top bread slice looks smoother and nicely rose. Here's the trick! I added in an egg to the top bread recipe.

Here's what I did to the main dough ingredients:
350gm bread flour handful of seaweed
2 tspn yeast
3 tbsp milk powder
1 tpsn salt
160ml water
1 whole egg (do not beaten)
40gm butter
#Please take note of the changes in water level.

I too love Sourdough bread Kristy. This sure is an unusual one. I'd be willing to give it a try although, I'm not sure I would actually ever bake it myself.

Thank you so much for sharing...Happy World Bread Day tomorrow!!!
