Made in a Bread Maker Onion Bread

This onion bread is made with a fluffy and springy dough.
I like the sweetness of the onion and the spiciness of the black pepper.

Ingredients: 40 cm loaf

Bread flour
200 g
Caster sugar
15 g
Instant Dry Yeast
3 g
3 g
Low Fat Milk
115 g
Beaten egg (medium)
25 g
Margarine (or butter)
20 g
2 slices
Coarsely ground black pepper
to taste
Mixed pizza cheese
as needed


1. Put the ingredients listed until the margarine in a bread maker to make the dough. Wait until the 1st rising is finished.
2. Slice the onion and bacon into 5 mm wide strips. Microwave the onion without plastic wrap for about 5~7 minutes at 500W until it becomes semi-translucent and soft, then let it cool.
3. Transfer the dough to a board and roll out into a rectangle with a rolling pin. Spread the onion and bacon (set aside 1/3 of them for toppings), sprinkle with black pepper, and roll it up. Close the seams completely and press down with your hands to flatten it out.
4. Cut into half with a scraper or a knife starting 2cm from the top. Twist together, and pinch up the end to close completely. Cover with plastic wrap & a tightly wrung out kitchen towel, or spray with water. Let it rise (2nd rising) with the bread-steam-rise setting of the oven (at 40℃) until it becomes 1.5 times the original size.
5. When the 2nd rising is finished, top with the remaining onion and bacon from Step 3 and the cheese. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes at 190~180℃ (preheated to 200℃), and then it's done.
6. It's fluffy and springy It's also delicious if you put pizza sauce and processed cheese cubes on the rolled out dough during Step 3.

Story Behind this Recipe

I created this recipe to use up cheese It takes longer, but it will taste better when you pan-fry the onion used during Step 3.
