Don't get bored with bread

Since the first day of school,I have to prepare lunch for the kids everyday.Now they are bored with the sandwiches that I prepared.So I have to seek for new idea to make the sandwiches more interesting.To make the sandwiches look appetizing I add the cocoa powder into the bread.I love to bake anything that add with coloring.So if you like to make the bread more colorful just add some food coloring into the bread dough.
This is the recipe of the day.

(White bread)Part 1
300g All purpose flour,sifted
120ml cold water
1 tsp Instant yeast

1/4tsp Salt
25g Castor sugar
30g Butter or Shortening

(Chocolate bread) Part 1
300g All purpose flour,sifted
120ml Cold water
1 tsp Instant yeast

Part 2
1/4tsp Salt

25g Castor sugar
30g Cocoa Powder(Sifted)
30g Butter or Shortening

(1)Knead Part 1 (two separate bowl)to form a dough called the sponge and let ferment in the bowl for 3-4 hours.

(2)Add Part 2 to the sponge and remix until a dough is formed.

(3)After few minutes of kneading add the shortening and knead until the a smooth dough is formed.

(4)Shape the dough and mould into the loaf pan.

(5)Cover dough with a piece of damp towel until double in bulk for about 45 minutes and bake at 360F for 35-40 minutes.

I actually like brown bread more. I just think it has more taste. You know what they say, once you go brown you can't go white anymore! Hehehe

Hi Sahm...

Lovely looking bread there. You know what else you can do with the bread to make it look more interesting? You can also play around with the two colored dough, arrange it to form a Panda face. Add two raisins for the eyes! I am just clever at suggesting though. I've tried baking it once, but my panda looks like a handicapped panda! Hahahaha......
