Foodiva's Kitchen: Pull-Apart Chocolate Matcha Swirl Bread with Kit Kat Filling

Pull-Apart Chocolate Matcha Swirl Bread with Kit Kat Filling
Ingredients:
Matcha Dough
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dried instant yeast
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons matcha powder
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/8 cup warm milk
1 tablespoon extra flour, for kneading

Chocolate Dough
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried instant yeast
1 tablespoon caster sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 small egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup warm milk
2 to 3 tablespoons extra flour, for kneading

Filling
3 regular Kit Kat bars, sliced into 24 (1cm or ½-inch) pieces

1. Matcha dough: Mix the flour, sugar, dried yeast and matcha in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and gradually add the warm milk. Knead for about 10 minutes until dough becomes pliable and is non-sticky. Add the extra flour as necessary to achieve this texture. Shape into a ball and place in a lightly-oiled bowl, leave to proof in a warm place for 30 minutes.
2. Chocolate dough: Mix the flour, sugar, dried yeast and cocoa powder in a mixing bowl. Add the butter, egg and gradually add the warm milk. Knead for about 10 minutes until dough becomes pliable and is non-sticky. Add the extra flour as necessary to achieve this texture. Shape into a ball and place in a lightly-oiled bowl, leave to proof in a warm place for 30 minutes.
3. Roll out the chocolate dough into a rough rectangle about 10x8-in. Wrap the matcha dough ball inside the chocolate dough. Turn dough over so the sealed side is at the bottom. Flatten out the dough again with a rolling pin and roll carefully out into a 12x10-in rectangle. Take the long-side and roll into a thin cylinder. Slice the cylinder into 12 fairly even pieces.
4. Take a piece of cut dough and with the cut-side down, roll out into a disc. Take 2 pieces of cut Kit Kat bars, stack one piece over the other and pull the edges of the dough together towards the middle. Press firmly to seal the egdes, then roll dough in your palm to form a ball shape. Repeat with the other dough pieces.
5. Arrange filled dough balls in a well-buttered 8-inch round baking pan. Leave it to rise in a warm place for another 20 minutes. 10 minutes before baking time, preheat your oven to 180C/350F.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Once it comes out of the oven, brush the tops with some melted butter. Leave it to cool for 10 minutes before turning out and serving.

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
