Homemade Gardenia Cottage Style Bread

Gardenia is considered as one of the largest bread manufacturer around the region. So far it has produce a number of varieties for both breads and cakes to the marketing. And the latest one was the Gardenia European Cottage Style Bread. It costs about RM4.00 something per loaf. Expensive but worth buying though. Just how could I not trying to make one at home ! Nope, never miss a chance of it. Here I go again.

Ingredients :
400gm   bread flour
120gm   mixed seeds & roll oats
2 tspn   yeast
250ml   water
2 tbsp   heavy cream
1 tspn   salt
60gm    butter

Method :
(1) combine flour, yeast and 80gm mix seeds & roll oats into a big bowl.
(2) stir in water & cream to form a soft dough, then add in salt & butter and knead till smooth.
(3) set aside to rest for 90mins or till double in size.
(4) then place dough to working table and knead to release air from dough.
(5) shape it and brush surface with water, roll dough over the remain mixed seeds & roll oats.
(6) now, place it to baking tray and set aside for 45mins or till double in size. (I sprinkled the dough with some flour and then make a nice cut to the center.)
(7) finally, bake at preheated oven 185'C for about 30 mins.

I have no patient at all to wait till the bread turns cooled.... it looks really tempting. Did you hear that......someone is calling...."come to mama ~ !". :o)  Anyway, hope you guys will love it too.
I'm sending this to Wild Yeast Blog @ Yeast Spotting.
