I asked for advice and help on my last post, then I got tons of responses on Facebook page. Mange Tak, Thank you, Arigato!
After I read all of the answers and gathered information, I tried again.
I NAILED IT!!!!!!!!!!! Look!!!!!!
No, I’m not gonna make just normal bread. I need to make something cool and fun for my son and other kids.
In Japan it’s popular to make kawaii shape bread, so I followed the trend….
Puppy Bread should be perfect for kids, right?
He looks innocent…
Nice fluffy texture… yeast worked so well!!!!
So what did I do different this time ? Actually only 2 things!
- I used fresh yeast.
In Denmark you can buy this fresh yeast for 50g, costs 1 kr. cheap. I used dry yeast last time, I think dry yeast just does a good job as raising, but my mistake was it was too old. I didn’t think the dry yeast is going to bad…… so I went to a store to buy new one. I think it was my main problem last time. (MALTESERKORS GÆRS you’re the best.)
2. I kneaded for 5 minutes.
I skipped this part last time!!!!!!! Can you believe it!?!? I somehow thought that this bread mixture, you only add yeast, water – boom, magic.
Well, there is no magic. You gotta use your arm and work for it.
So this time, I kneaded for good 5 minutes, just like what it says on the box.
It’s my bad habit, I tend to skip some instructions. I need to pay attention more… urg.
Then, Then —- the dough raised!
Yaaay! The perfectly raised bread dough is like baby’s cheeks, what a joy to work with it. If there are some people having trouble with bread making…. remember my mistakes 😉
Again, you, who responded to my question. Thank you so much, I’m super happy with my puppy bread. I am so looking forward to seeing my son and his classmates’ smile today!
