Sundried Tomatoes Loaf

The combination of the sundried tomatoes make this bread a very nice and perfect bread in my opinion. Daughter said " tastes like foccacia". You can just eat it on its own without any spread and it still taste good. The aroma of the bread is so good when it was baking  that one would feel like eating it immediately it is out from the BM😊. This is also why I like making bread at home. During the baking process, the whole house is full of the aroma of bread.

Although I have added Rye flour and Wholemeal flour, the bread is soft and light and chewy. The kind of bread that I like.😊 Next round I will add some herbs into the dough. 

190gm water included 1egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
210g bread flour
20g Rye flour
30g Wholemeal flour

1 teaspoon instant yeast

Some chopped sundried tomatoes

Directions using Bread Maker:
1)Place water, egg,  salt, sugar, oil, breadflour, rye and wholemeal into the tin of the bread machine (according to the sequence as stated in the instruction manual of your bread machine). Make an indentation on the flour and add in the instant yeast. Then cover the yeast with some of the flour.

2) Select "Dough" function and let it knead for 15mins. After 15min press "Stop"  and hold for few seconds to stop the function.(My BM dough function complete cycle is 25min)

3) After 15min dough function, select "Soft Bread" "Function 1" with "Light" crust. Select weight 750g.  Press "Start". My BM soft bread cycle is 2hours 55mins.
While the BM is working the dough, use a chop stick place across the opening of BM and close the cover Leave the chopstick there for 15-20mins.  The cover will not close completely and it leave a gap to let out some heat.  You may omit this process. After 15-20mins, remove the chopstick, close the cover completely and let it function as usual.

4) Just before 2nd beep, approximate at 1 hrs 40min,  by now you would see the dough proof till quite high. Remove the dough and place on a floured working board. Gently spread the dough flat with your cleaned hand like you are making roti prata. Remember to oil your hand so that dough will not stick on your hands. Spread some chopped sundried tomatoes on the dough.  Quickly roll the dough and put it back into the BM without the paddle and let it continues to cook  until the loaf is ready.
Note: This process should not take longer than 2 mins. 
Note: Remove also the paddle. 

5)When the loaf is ready, there will be a continuous beep sound. Remove tin and shake out the loaf onto a rack and leave to cool. Appro. an hour. Slice it and serve.
