230 gm bread flour
20 gm plain flour
2 tsp instant yeast
100 ml water
  • Mix all ingredients into a soft rough dough.  Cover and leave to proof for at least 1-2 hours.

  • Add all the ingredients [except water and butter] to the sponge dough.  Knead till well combined, then gradually add in water while kneading till a soft dough is formed [you may not need all the water].  Knead for about 10 minutes then add in butter.  Continue kneading till soft, smooth and elastic. 
  • Shape into a ball and cover with a clean cloth to proof for 15 minutes or until double in size. Punch down dough.
  • Divide dough into 2 equal portions.  Roll and fold each portion into thirds, then roll swiss roll style into a log.  Place in baking tin [Pullman's tin] and leave to proof in oven for more than an hour or until double in size.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 25 minutes.  Remove to cool on rack immediately after baking.
