Eggless Green Tea Wassant Loaf

You're probably thinking......"aren't Kristy had enough of this....wassant bread?" No, I'm not gonna stop unless I experiment every inch of it. haha...... Just kidding ! Actually, I would very much love to own an Eggless version of this bread. Hopefully, some of my vegetarian readers will too have the chance to give this a good try. So, talk no further. Let's go to the recipe.

Ingredients for Bread Dough :
Starter Dough :
300gm   all purpose flour
1-1/2 tspn   yeast
1 tbsp   sugar
250ml   water
(combine to form a soft dough, set aside to rest for an hour or till double in size)

Main Dough :
300gm  bread flour
2 tbsp  sugar
140ml  milk
1 tspn  salt
60gm  butter

Method :
(1) combine main dough ingredients together with the starter dough in a big mixing bowl once it's ready, stir well to form a soft dough.
(2) set aside to rest for an hour or till double in size.
(3) press or punch proved dough to release air, then knead till smooth.
(4) place dough to slightly floured working table and roll out flat about the size bigger than the green tea paste.
(5) place green tea paste to the center then cover with dough and seal well.
(6) roll dough flat into rectangle shape, and fold into 3 from the longer side.
(7) again roll flat again and repeat the folding for another 2 more rounds.
(8) finally, roll into 11x13" size and divide into 2 portions.
(9) by using a pizza cutter, cut the center of each dough about 2/3 of the length and leave 1/3 of dough hanging there.
(10) make a twist to each stripes of dough then place them to a 4.5x4.5x10" greased  baking tray, set aside to rest for 40-60mins or till double in size.
(11) finally, bake at preheated oven 180-185'C for about 45-50mins.
(12) once it's done, set aside to cool for 10 mins before removing the loaf from tray.

Ingredients for Eggless Green Tea Paste :
(A)
120ml  milk
3 tbsp   sugar
50gm  all purpose flour
20gm   rice flour
1 tbsp  green tea powder (or any flavour as desired)

(B)
150gm   white chocolate, chopped & melted

 Method :  Please refer here.

The dough is actually very soft & also a bit sticky. So, must handle with care. You can omit the twisting method I used on the dough and recreate your own. Bread making is such a fun thing to do, so don't stress yourself out. Just enjoy the fun....as long as you're happy with it.

And the best part of bread making is still the ending part....Oh yes, the finish product ! haha..... Some may turned out perfect and some may not. Whatever the outcome, just take it and you'll make it better the next time. Just like the journey of our lives. Nothing is perfect ! We can just try our best to make it better and enjoy every moment of it. Hope you guys will have fun too.

Green tea and white choc, interesting combination! Thanks for the recipe, nowadays really hard to find a non bread maker recipe, most prefer baking bread with a machine. lol!
