sweet-tooth, you can proof the bread in the oven with a bowl of hot water. Or proof it on top of a hot kettle (my usual method). The bread will rise regardless of the weather using this way.

Hi Wai Fun

Planning to make this on Sunday. But need to check with you, about how long can this bread be kept?

Regards...May

May, mine disappear on the next day...hahaha...it doesn't yield a lot, only about 10 small balls/buns. Just remember to keep it in the fridge if you can't finish on the same day (I do that for all my homebaked breads). It should be able to last you minimum 3 days.

hehe, instead of sticking them together, I'm planning to just shape them as small balls and separate them from each other. Easier to distribute mar..hehe..

I'm making your orange bread now but after waiting for an hour it still hardly increase in size. Could it be that I oil the dough it too much?

Mine turn out hard but still taste really good. In the end, I left it alone for about 2 hours I think for the second proffing. Then I just bake it in the oven..Just post it in the daily bread.

I've made this bread again today and made some adjustment to the original recipe. This time round I did it without any machine, just to confirm there is no problem kneading the dough. For those who wish to try this again, the dough should be easier to handle than the original recipe. It will be a little less tangy as I've reduced the amount of orange juice used.

asan, if you intend to use orange juice concentrate, I'll suggest to first dilute it to just slightly sweeter than what you'll normally consumed, otherwise may be too sweet for the bread.

Hi Gina and kwf,

It's my pleasure...

I posted the photos to boost the confidence on the bread. I really find this bread very fluffy and delicious and I should give the credit to KWF for her kindness in posting the recipe.

THUMBS UP on the bread.

Rgds. aunty
