Remastered: Cinnamon & Choco Rice Pull Apart Bread

I baked this bread quite sometime back and it looked like an alien LOL
You can view the aliens HERE

This time, I got it right, even though still not as pretty as where I got the recipe from, the choco rice version still a little collapsed, but not too bad, way much better than my first one :)

This is the cinnamon version...

Look what we had in every slice:

The choco rice version...

Loaded with chocolate rice:

And this time, I did use the original recipe for the bread
The first time I did, I used my own bread recipe (perhaps that contributed the alien looking result hee...)

Recipe is from HERE

What you need:

For the bread:

405g cups of bread flour (original recipe used all purpose flour)
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/4 tsp dried yeast
1/2 tsp salt
57g unsalted butter, room temperature
80ml whole milk
60ml water
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. I used my bread machine to do the job
  2. Put in all the wet ingredients first except butter, followed by the dry ingredients
  3. Start the dough function and after 5 minutes, add in butter
  4. Let the machine do the rest of the job, about 1 1/2 hour
For the cinnamon filling:
(I modified a little)

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
57g unsalted butter, melted til browned
  1. Mix all ingredients except butter. Butter is to spread before sprinkling the cinnamon mixture
  2. After the dough is ready, take out from bread machine, knead for awhile to let the air bubbles out, shape into a ball. Leave it for 5 minutes
  3. Divide the dough into 2 balls and flatten them with rolling pin to a rectangular shape one at a time to a thickness of around 1/4 inch
  4. Brush with butter and sprinkle - one with cinnamon mixture, one with choco rice
  5. Cut each rectangle to small rectangles, pile them together into 2 stacks - one with cinnamon, one with choco rice
  6. Arrange each stack in a greased and lined loaf pan
  7. Let it proof til double in size around 45 - 60 minutes depends on the weather
  8. Before baking, sprinkle the remaining cinnamon mixture on top of the cinnamon bread dough (I didn't do this, I should have)
  9. Bake in preheated oven of 175degC for 35 minutes
  10. Take out from the oven, remove from the pan, and let cool on wire rack
  11. How you eat it? Tear them apart and eat each slive with a cup of coffee - yum! Best eaten warm
Nice and soft bread, tasty and stay fresh til the next day if kept in airtight container (I always do that after my bread is cooled)

Another reminder for my giveaway, it'll end tonight 00:00
