Step 1: Ingredients and Suplies
600g Loaf (206 x 108 x100h)
300g Bread Flour
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 cup milk with 1 egg yolk (both should total 1 cup together)
3/4 tbsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 tbsp green tea (Matcha) powder dissolved with 2 tsp hot water (or green food coloring)
3 1/2 tsp cocoa powder dissolved with 1 1/2 tsp hot water
Step 2: How to Make
1 - In a small bowl, microwave milk and egg yolk for about 30 seconds. Set aside. (I did 2 minutes, because It was very cold here, it helps the yeast work)
2 - In the bowl , combine flour, sugar and yeast.
3 - Add butter, salt and milk mixture, stirring by hand or mixer
4 -Knead until dough comes together and pulls away from the sides, about 5-10 minutes. If the dough is sticky, add a tbsp-ful of dough at a time until it is smooth and elastic.
5 - Divide dough into three pieces, two about equal and one about 1/3 the size of the other two.
6 - Dissolve the green tea and cocoa in water, and knead it to the dough.
7 - Place the dough in a warm place(it can be the oven), covered, to rise until doubled.
Step 3: How to Assemble
1 - Once dough is risen, on a floured surface, assemble the pieces , follow the step by step on the pics .
2 - Place dough in a lightly greased loaf pan, cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
3 - Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
4 - Once dough is risen, bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on the outside .
Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing or serving.
