    Just to share, I had a batch ended up taste like bread but look like cookie, or should I say look like tau sar piah taste like bread but feel like malay kuay...LOL That batch i made the mistake of not kneading for 1st rise, so the dough rose so fast and empty, had to removed and knead a little and form shape for 2nd rise. Took a long time for 2nd rise, then when i applied the egg before baking, all air escape. Rise gone, all dough went flat, no choice went ahead put inside oven, sadly no more last rise, came out flat like tau sar piah...LOL

    I agree machine made can hardly get close because of the control, but handmade should get as close as 70%, the different maybe the oven pro bakeries use are different from our consumer end products. We likely don't have features of what they have, and the little tricks know only to the master themselves. I don't know if it is correct that healthy food not as nice as sinful food, but I do think that it is because of the prolong heavy taste we are exposed to, which cause our taste bud to forget about what taste actually is. So we ended up thinking nice food must be very tasty...LOL If you remove all the MSG, heavy sugar, salt, and all those sauces from the sinful food, leaving only the base food, suddenly the sinful food is not any nice anymore...LOL

    Bro, 2x only and you gave up, I tired about 4-5 times before I finally get these...LOL I think if it is hard, it could be not enough yeast/ yeast did not activate, or too much flour. With the machine you won't be able to tell, but handmade we can see and feel how the dough feel and look like before and after the rise. In fact roughly can tell the outcome already. To ensure the bread is moist inside and light crispy outside, place a cup of hot water inside the oven. The steam will create a humid environment so the bread will be moist inside. Cover the bread once the top turn brown, to prevent burning and getting to dry. Butter after baked or egg the surface before final rise, otherwise high chance of breaking the dough and CO2 escape, then bread become in between cookie and bread...LOL try again?...LOL

    yup, no point if you cannot finish them, shelf life is real short, end up wasting food. I have 3 kids and they are a lot older than yours, all finish in 2 days, nothing left...LOL I usually start around 7-8pm, and finish by 11-11.30pm, in between i do my work while the dough is rising. I have gone through your stage with young children, tiring and always trying to find time, so this is not for you yet..LOL

    Thanks bro. I don't have a bread machine, all hand made, quite time consuming but worth the while. Can pass some to you for tasting if you interested...LOL The good thing is we get to control what goes into the bread, and that's my main objective...LOL

    Finally, after a few tries, quite happy with this result, light crispy on the outside, soft and puffy on the inside. Now I can make 100% wholemeal bread for the children, and wholegrain bread for myself. Is bye bye white bread now...LOL Really could not help it, had a cheat meal with these for lunch, and one guilty old town hazelnut coffee...
