Japanese green tea loaf (breadmaker loaf) / Three-cheese sandwich with green-tea bread

I knew it's gonna be a very busy day for me today, I wont have time to roll or shape any bun, so I just dump everything into the breadmaker when I arrived at the office and let it does its work on its own. At lunch time, I'm greeted by nice bread aroma and a soft fluffy green tea loaf is ready for lunch.
If you've been following my blog, you would have known that I've been baking bread with Alex Goh's magic bread recipe and it has become the fool-proof base recipe for me. Every bread that this recipe bakes is super soft and fluffy and they remain soft till the next day.


Recipe for three-cheese filling for this sandwich:
  • 1tbsp cream cheese
  • 1tbsp grated Cheddar
  • 1tsp grated Parmesan
Combine all in a bowl and spread as sandwich filling.

Here's the recipe for my breadmaker's Japanese green tea loaf
Starter dough:
  • 100g bread flour
  • 70g boiling water
Pour boiling water over bread flour. Stir to combine. Keep in a container in a refrigerator for at least one hour or up to 12hours. If you don't have the time to prepare this in advanced, just measure in bread flour into the breadpan, pour in 70g boiling water and press start to let it combine. Then add the following ingredients in the order listed.
Main dough (listed according to the order the ingredients are placed in bread machine):
  • 150g soymilk (Fresh or powder-reconstituted)
  • 40g grapeseed oil
  • 1-2tbsp brown sugar
  • 1tbsp Japanese fine green tea powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 200g bread flour
  • 50g all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. yeast
  1. Set the bread machine in the normal bread mode (number 1), select crust setting to light*, and choose 700g loaf size, and press start (启动). *I've always chosen 'Light' cos I do not want to have a thick crusty skin for my loaf.
  2. Place all the above ingredients into the loaf pan in the order, as listed above.
  3. When all the ingredients has combine together, add in the starter dough in small pieces.
  4. Let the bread machine does it work.
  5. In 3 hour 12 min, tada!! The loaf is ready!
