My sister Angela bought me some green tea powder two years ago and I still have it in my fridge. I hardly bake anything with it as my other half is not a fan of its flavor. When I saw the green tea loaf at Frozen Wing’s blog I knew I have to try it out. The swirl of the bread she baked was so pretty. Guess what, mine turn out looking totally different. Serve me right for not reading the instruction properly. I have to divide the dough again into two after proofing and I didn’t do that. Oh well, I will do a better job the next time. Lesson learned, no more glancing through the instruction again.
Adapted from Frozen Wing's and Sze Min’s
300 gram bread flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp green tea powder
1. Combine flour, sugar , salt , yeast and water in a mixer and mix well till smooth dough is formed.
2. Add in butter till dough is smooth and shiny.
3. Divide dough into 2 portions and add in the green tea powder into one portion and mix till dough is even colour.
4. Clingwrap both dough and let it proof about an hour or almost double in size.
5. Shape both dough into round shapes and let them rest for 10 minutes.
6. Divide each dough into 2 portions, so now altogether 2 portions of plain dough and 2 portions of green tea dough.
7. Roll them out and shape them into rectangle
8. Stack the layers alternately, flatten the dough and roll them up tight.
9. Place in a lightly greased loaf tin ( 11cmx11cmx23cm) and let proof for second time for an hour .
10. Bake in a preheated oven 350 degree F for 30 mins.
