Seiyou Kotto Yougashite (西洋骨董洋菓子店)

I bought a Japanese anime with titled "Seiyou Kotto Yougashite". I feel excited when I saw this DVD and hence bought it without any consideration. The reason I like this anime is because it talks about CAKE ~~ yes, something related to cake again. I haven't watch the movie yet but do have some print screen from the DVD.
The master pastry chef is a gay, hahaha...
I wish to see more cake's shoot from the anime and of course some baking knowledge. Hahahaha...

Wolfberries Wholemeal Bread

I made a healthy bread which used of wholemeal flour, flaxseed and wolfberries. I made the bread by using my smart breadmaker and it was so soft and delicious. Hence what you need are only the ingredients as well as a breadmaker. If you do not have a breadmaker, you can mix all the ingredients and knead until the dough is soft and elastic, shape into big ball shape (or whatever shape that you prefer) and let it prove until double it's size. Bake at 180°C for about 30 minutes or until it is cooked (baking time is dependent on the size of bread).

200ml egg(1whole egg)+water (the meaning here is to put 1egg into a measuring cup and add water until they reach 200ml)
40g butter
3tbsp milk powder
1/2tsp bread improver
1 1/2tsp salt
60g sugar
1tsp poppyseeds
1tsp flaxseeds
2tbsp wolfberries
3cups wholemeal flour
1 1/2tsp yeast

Method: (for breadmaker)
1. Put all the ingredients in breadmaker machine according to sequence as listed above (wet ingredient follow by dry ingredient, lastly add in yeast).
2. Set according to your breadmaker machine's setting.
3. Remove the bread from the breadmaker machine when it is ready.
