Ham and Cheese Loaf ~using breadmaker

After last month’s data burst, I’ve to keep monitoring my data usage and only uploads when there is wifi. 😓

Did two attempts using my Pano breadmaker to do a Ham & Cheese Loaf and my 2nd attempt looks much better. Still need improvement but it looks and taste ok.

1st attempt ~ whole loaf

Cross-sectional ~ all the ham “floats” up

Using the P104 model ~ this is the basic model, mode 8 for pineapple bread, the breadmaker allows you only about 10mins of window time to divide to 12 pcs, roll flat, roll up the ham and put them all back into the tin. Not forgetting taking the blade out and clean out any reside dough and flour bits to ensure to load looks “clean” when you take it out.

Honestly, that’s not enough time! 
It automatically starts back to rise the bread even if you haven’t put all the dough back inside and you cannot press stop. Talk about being stress…

Armed with 1st attempt experience, I decided to attempt 2nd time tonight ana voila! The ham and cheese looks much more evenly spread. 

2nd attempt loaf looks better!

more evenly spread ham & cheese but need to focus on rolling more tightly

2nd attempt,  I am much prepared. 

Anyway, instruction guide and recipe from Panasonic breadmaker recipe book. 😜
