Padan Kaya Loaf

The Pandan loaf that looks like a wreath.

Have some of the buns in a cup.

This is a loaf that is not from any of my Japanese books. It's by Alex Goh. A girl Friend of mine lend this this bread making book to me couple months back, and saw this loaf that is so local taste, as Pandan, coconut milk and raisins make the combination. So I thought I wanna give it a try. The taste is good and great soft texture. It has that cottony layers of bread sponge, which many people love.

I changed the recipe a little, by using more Pandan juice to replaced the green colouring. So I reduced the water to make up the replacement of the Pandan juice. Really worth trying recipe.
I used a chiffon cake tin to mould the bread, and I let the dough have that 5 minutes relaxing before final shaping and place in the tin. So we may have many other ways of shaping the loaf.

sugar 45g
Salt 1/2 tsp
