Banana Bread

Dad bought me lots of bananas again~

When there are bananas at home, I will always leave it until darken and use it to try out some banana cake recipes. But that day was different. Mom asked me to bake some bread again, so my brother can bring it to school as snacks. I quickly open our family's favorite bread recipe from Keluarga Nugraha's website and also find some inspiration for the bread's shape. Of course I can't make round buns forever! :D


I found a very good inspiration from Citra Kusuma's blog. She also provides a step-by-step picture in shaping the dough! Love it so much! 

Banana Bread


Bun ingredients (adapted from Keluarga Nugraha) :
375 gr bread flour, sifted
75 gr castor sugar
20 gr milk powder
8 gr instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
125 gr unsalted butter, softened, room temperature
Evaporated milk, for brushing dough (about 4 tbsp)

Mix well (egg mixture) :
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
1 whole egg, lightly beaten
175 ml cold milk
2 tbsp condensed milk

Enough bananas for filling, and cheese for topping

Method :
1. In a big bowl,mix together flour, castor sugar, milk powder, yeast, and salt.
2. Pour egg mixture little by little, knead to combine.
3. Add softened butter, knead until dough is smooth, soft, and elastic.
4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let dough proof for 30 mins until dough has doubled in volume.
5. Deflate dough using the heel of your hand, and divide into about 50 gr balls.
6. Let rest for 30 mins until dough puffed up.
7. Flatten dough to 1 cm thick and filled with half banana (click here for Citra Kusuma's step-by-step picture), and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
8. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 15 mins. Preheat oven to 180°C.
9. Brush the dough surface with evaporated milk and bake for 30 minutes.

Enjoy 

With love,
Julia
