Plain and Spinach Loaf Bread [Straight Dough Method]

Seen this bread recipe from  somewhere but can't recall.  So I use the Sweet Potato Loaf Bread recipe from Cathy's blog to bake this bread with some adjustment to suit the ingredients I have. I used plain yoghurt instead of whipping cream.

This loaf bread is soft and moist but quite time consuming to make.  I wouldn't bake this bread if there is time constraint because you need to knead the dough separately.  The quantity here is to make 2 loaves and 1 loaf [qty in red].
Ingredients - Plain Dough 
[makes 2 loaves]
280 gm bread flour [140 gm]
30 gm wholemeal flour [15 gm]
2 tbsp castor sugar [1 tbsp]
1/4 tsp salt [1/8 tsp]
1 tsp instant yeast [1/2 tsp]
140 gm whipping cream [70 gm]
20 gm shortening [10 gm]
Ingredients - Spinach Dough 
[makes 2 loaves]
300 gm bread flour [150 gm]
40 gm wholemeal flour [20 gm]
100 gm spinach puree [50 gm]
2 tbsp castor sugar [1 tbsp]
1/4 tsp salt [1/8 tsp]
1 tsp instant yeast [1/2 tsp]
140 gm whipping cream [70 gm]
20 gm shortening [10 gm]
  1. Knead the dough separately until smooth [may need to add a little water - about 30 ml] and add in shortening.  Continue to knead until soft, smooth and elastic [window pane stage].  Shape both  into round balls and cover to proof for 1 hour.
  2. Punch down both dough and fold into thirds.  Then roll each dough into 1" thickness.  Stack the 2 flattened dough together  and roll up tightly to form a roulade.
  3. Place in baking tin [Pullman's tin],  sprinkle some oats on bread.  Leave in the oven to proof for 1 hour.
  4. Remove dough from oven to preheat oven to 160 degrees C for 10 minutes.  
  5. Baked bread for 45 minutes.  Remove from tin immediately to cool on rack before storing.

Wow, Kimmy, this bread looks nice, like the colour combination. Yes looks like it does entail some 'labour'!

Hi Cathy, Hi Cheah - Was thinking the pattern should be better if I had a little more time to play around with the dough. Because I was doing 2 loaves, I need to hurry up. Next time must spend more time to make a better design. Haha...
