Multi Grains Bun

This multi grains bun is one healthy bun . I made them to go with the corn soup I made last Friday.  A lovely fresh herbs and wholemeal in them and coated with multi grains on the surface of the bun complete the fibre content in this bun :) Soft and fluffy and fibre rich sounds so good...doesn't it :)   I love making them and eating them with homecooked soups like the corn soup and mushroom soup. Mmmmmm lovely and it is indeed so healthy.  Love the multi grains on them too...taste good and I shall make more for our breakfast.

And not only it taste good but it is also easy to make.  Some people finds making bread hard but I tell you it is not hard at all. All you need is a good cake mixer with the dough hook and you are ready to go. Not much kneading needed .  I used the cake mixer with the dough hook and machine knead it for about 15 mins and the dough will come together as a ball.  Take out the ball of dough and lightly knead it on a floured area for 5 mins.  Leave it to proof for 40 minutes or until double in size, then shape them into equal balls and leave to proof for another 15 -20 minutes, then bake them at 200 deg C for 15-20 minutes or until they are browned and cooked. So easy right ?   Practice makes perfect.

  2. The problem is.. mixer looo. Not many have a good mixer, especially beginners. I didn't buy a stand mixer not until recently, which was why I shied away from making bread. Too difficult la. Later you'd see my blog flooded with breads, still haven't posted any.. hahhaa
