Power Bread

Soybean and black sesame Bread

DSC_6047Although I posted this bread recipe in 2012, I would like to do a re-match! I didn’t have a ‘print recipe here’ thingy back then so re-posting is kind of nice and at the same time satisfies our craving for this unique bread.

I purchased the ingredients and handed them to my husband, here they are, Good luck! His came out fluffier and aromatic. Hey, what is your secret? What? New bread maker? When?

Ingredients and Instruction for 1 8x3x4 loaf pan (Print Recipe here)

Equipment: bread maker

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 100 g soybeansIMG_2803
  • 250 g bread flour plus extra for dusting work surface
  • 4 g instant dry yeast
  • 10 g sugar
  • 15 g egg beaten
  • 170 ml milk
  • 15 g butter cut into cubes plus some for greasing the pan
  • 5 g salt
  • 20 g black sesame seeds
  1. Dissolve salt in water in a medium size bowl. Soak soybeans overnight.
  2. Next day - In a bread maker, place flour in a mound, make a little cavity in flour, bury the yeast and cover with flour. Add sugar, egg, then pour milk around the edges of flour. Add the butter and salt.Select dough course and run it.

  3. About 20 minutes in, add drained and patted dry with paper towel beans and black sesame seeds then continue to let the bread maker finish the process. DSC_6000DSC_6008 
  4. When the dough is ready, put on the flour dusted surface (he didn’t need since he did it on a on silicon pad). Divide the dough in half and make balls. Grease pan with butter and put the two dough balls in the pan. Grease top of the bread balls then cover with plastic wrap. Raise the bread for 2nd time about 50 minutes to 1 hour in a *warm place (122F). * Our kitchen was warm enough so he just let it rise at room temperature.DSC_6018DSC_6010
  5. Heat oven to 356F. Bake it for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack. Store the slightly warm bread in a plastic bag to keep moist. Serve with butter. Particularly nice toasted.DSC_6029

Variation – let the bread maker do all the work start to finish. We bake in the separate loaf pan because of looks.

Last week’s my best Today’s TAPAS instagram post (#todaystapas) – bite size menchi katsu (breaded fried hamburger)…love the juicy wholesome bite! I made a dozen and served them for supper…smart move! Right?IMG_2812

Happy Girl’s Day! Today, March 3rd is Hinamatsuri in Japan. I made temari sushi (temari means handball, sushi rice formed to mimic a ball) to celebrate.IMG_2837

Only 17 days to Spring! There are many signs of Spring in our neighborhood. I wish I could share this nice weather with you…IMG_2838

     大腸に住んでいる無数の良い細菌を腸内フローラと呼ぶようになりました。それを育てるには、大豆などの食物繊維がとても効果が有るそうです。 私も、最近、嫌いな納豆を意識して食べています。

    1. あははは。 納豆が嫌いとは残念です。 私も主人も好きですよ。 たくさんメリットがあるし、ちょっと匂いが気になりますけど、がまん、がまん。 石垣の写真とても素晴らしいです。 さすがですね。

  8. Que Deus te dê um esplendoroso dia, com raios luminosos que te possam clarear os olhos para ver o quanto és importante. Deus Pai te fez assim: mulher importante e figura do próprio amor. Ele te moldou como uma rosa: forte e justa como os espinhos, linda e suave como as pétalas.
    FELIZ DIA INTERNACIONAL DAS MULHERES!
    Um doce abraço, Marie.

  10. Hi Nippon Nin,

    Love your very Japanese style bread. I reckon that the addition of soy and black sesame seeds in your loaf is so unique!

    You must be happy to see the pretty colours of Spring... Everything is becoming red, orange and brown here in Melbourne... So sad :(

  12. ゴマ食パン大好き!10枚切りにするとチキンサンドイッチなどにあいます。でも、大豆入りは初めて。確かにユニークなパンですね。これはそのまま食べるのがおいしそう。Bread Makerもそちらに買われてよく働く機会があり幸せでしょう。それでお餅もつくれますよね?

    満開のピンクの花は桜ですか? こちらは梅が満開。昨日、今日は最高気温摂氏5度ほどですが梅は凛とした様子で耐えています。春よこい、は~やくこい♪
