Zebra Pattern Toast Bread

I haven’t baked bread for a while and would like to have something that can be kept for a longer time –> toast bread! My mother will also take it as it is soft. It is more appealing to have a twist of the toast bread instead of having plain bread.  So, here is zebra patterned toast bread, seen from the internet but with own adaptation.  I used black sesame powder instead of charcoal.  It’s OK to have a lighter colour.  Or, you can also replace with cocoa powder as well. Who says zebra must be black and white?

375g bread flour
30g sugar
½ tsp sea salt
30g butter
1 tsp instant dry yeast
250g fresh milk

4tsp black sesame powder
¾ tbsp fresh milk

Mix bread flour, sugar, milk in a mixing bowl.  Knead it to form a ball.

Add yeast and knead until incorporated.

Add salt and butter. Knead until the texture becomes smooth, shiny ad non-sticky.

Divide the dough into half.

Take one half, add the black sesame powder and milk.  Knead until incorporated.

Proof the two dough until double in size.

Divide each dough into 6 equal portions.  Rest 15 minutes.

Use a rolling pin to roll the balls into flat oval shape.

Place alternate colour dough into a Pullman tin.

I left it in the fridge to rise overnight.  Got up after 5am to put it to room temperature. The coloured dough filled about 90% of the  tin.  Then put in the oven about one hour later.

Bake in a covered loaf tin at a preheated oven at 190C for 35 minutes.

Let cool on wire, slice it and enjoy the cute toast bread.
