I love Hello kitty and other pretty things so I tend to make my shop full of Hello kitty and pretty craft and supplies.
I list various kinds of products almost every week. they are brand new. Most of them are international recognitions, I assure you of the creative and unique design for cozy lifestyle with functions and groovy looks.
This test is to use many pictures of Hello Kitty Goods to find out more about yourself. So easy, just follow the "yes" (red) or "no" (green) arrow to move forward. The final English letter you have reached will reveal personality.
It's a good test. Anyway the questions are sense of Japanese people. Some answers might be not exactly what you want.
This bread is so cute, right. I’ve never seen any bread like this before and I really want to try out the recipe. The original recipe is from Japanese website: COOKPAD.
If you can't read Japanese language, don't worry. I got the english version from Florence's blog.
This is the translated version of TARO's Panda Bread recipe: Ingredients: ＜600g loaf (206 x 108 x100h)
230g bread flour
70g cake flour
milk + 1 yolk = 210g (I used skim milk)
18g unsalted butter (I used 20g)
8g green tea powder dissolved in 10g boiling hot water
8g cocoa powder dissolved in 8g boiling water Method:
1. Heat up milk and yolk to temperature of 38℃. (I beat the yolk lightly with milk and send it to the microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds).
2. Put everything in bread machine and set to dough cycle. Let it knead for 20 minutes. Stop the cycle and restart the dough cycle and let it knead for another 15 minutes.
3. Divide dough (about 560g) into 3 parts: 75g for the chocolate, 210g plain and the rest of the dough which is less than 280g for the green tea.
4. Add chocolate to the 75g dough and knead till the colour is even. Add green tea mixture to the 280g dough and knead till colour is even. (I did this step manually).
5. Prove all 3 pieces of doughs on separate greased plates covered loosely with oiled cling wrap for 30 - 40 minutes.
6. Punch air out of dough and prove for another 20 - 30 minutes.
7. Use 90g plain dough for the face and 2 pieces of 27g chocolate dough for the eyes. (Refer to photo guide in Step (7) in TARO's site).
8. Fill the hollow of the eyes with 30g plain dough. (Refer to photo guide in Step (8) in TARO's site).
9. Roll remaining plain dough over the patterned dough. (Refer to photo guide in Step (9) in TARO's site).
10. Divide the remaining chocolate dough into 2 pieces (17.5g each) for the ears. (Refer to photo guide in Step (10) in TARO's site).
11. Use 70g of the green tea dough to fill up the hollow between the ears. (Refer to photo guide in Step (11) in TARO's site).
12. Wrap the rest of the green tea dough all around the patterned dough. (Refer to photo guide in Step (12) in TARO's site)
13. Place dough into a well-greased loaf pan and cover it with a lid and prove for 50 - 60 minutes in an enclosed area eg. microwave oven.
14. Bake at 200℃ for 25 – 30 minutes. Notes:
1. This is not an exact translation of TARO's recipe because I used the bread machine to help me so the first few steps might be different from TARO's.
2. For Step (12), I did not wrap the green tea dough all around the patterned dough. Compare my finished product to that of TARO's, you can see the difference.
3. My first prove is 60 minutes, 2nd prove is 30 minutes and final prove is 60 minutes.
4. I bake at 185℃ for 25 - 30 minutes.
