Cream Cheese Bread Take 2




Tried this bread again using whole wheat flour, brown sugar and added raisin. Using my breadmaker whole wheat bread function. Total cook time was 3 hours 40 minutes. When I peep into it around 2 hours, I had a nice round doom on top of the bread. Not sure why it sank down when it's time to bake? Perhaps I forgot to reset the setting, this was baked at 2lb and medium color instead of 1.5lb and light color setting. I only realized my mistake 30 minutes into the cycle and it was too late to do anything then.




The texture of this bread was again very soft but dense. Will attempt again with dough function to see whether it will provide me with a better looking and fluffy loaf of bread. This bread remains soft up to three days.

Original recipe taken from here.

Hi, I came across your blog a few weeks ago. I really like your blog so I have been coming back at least once a day. I just bake this bread last night with the original recipe. It came out beautiful. Thanks again and keeping up with the baking and kids.

Oh yum! Sunk down or not, your bread looks wonderful. I just love homebaked bread.
BTW, when during the cycle do you add the raisins? Thanks, C!

i saw in KC forum that they suggest use 50% of whole wheat and 50% of bread flour to produce very nice bread, maybe you can try that for a fluffy loaf?

wow! cream cheese bread also can?..Hmmm.I still left 1/2 pack of whole wheat flour in NY,but I don't have bread machine.I see alot of ppls use bread machine and the result are very good.Maybe I should get myself a bread maker when I go back.

Bet it tasted good in spite of the lack of a dome! A breadmaker is definitely on my list of things to buy.

Oh thanks M3C. Comment like yours will keep me blogging. :) And glad you like the bread.

Thanks Louisa. Well I was lazy so I just added the raisin before I start the cycle. Not quite advisable since some of the raisins seem to have gone missing. LOL!

Thanks cocoa for your suggestion. Will do that in my 3rd attempt! :)

D, cannot give up so easily leh. Furthermore the bread is really soft without the bread improver.

Thanks daphne!

Thanks suesue, will hop over next!

Beachlover & Nilmandra,
Yes, a breadmaker is definitely a good investment. I have no regret of making the purchase. :)

Ching, I tried this recipe 2 days ago. It turned out pretty good, I used the color setting on light and same as u, I made a mistake by choosing the 2lbs, should of used 1.5 lbs instead. The texture is very soft, and I use bread flour only. Thanks for the recommendation!

You're welcome Lin and glad you liked it. :)
