Saw an interesting thread in a baking forum which I frequent… it is Mochi Bread made by Sun Moulin Bakery @ Isetan Scotts. I have never try this before, but would like to see how mine turns out, so I went ahead with the experiment journey together with the rest of the fellow forumers… if you are interested as well you can get more information here.

I have change the recipe slightly to see whether it gets the right texture since the rest of the recipe is yet to have.

And here’s my result – the crust is crispy even after awhile and the interior is chewy

Ingredients:

2.    Sieve glutinous flour, soy flour (or cheese powder), cake flour and baking soda together.
3.    In a saucepan, bring water to boil, add water and salt. Add in butter and shortening. Remove from heat. Slowly sprinkle the flour mixture until well combined and form a dough.
4.    Slowly pour the wet butter mixture into the flour mixture, stir until well combined and forms a dough.
5.    Stir in the milk and stir in beaten egg, a spoonful at a time.
