I enjoy eating anything with salted caramel, pop corn, peanut butter, sweet chili sauce and sweet corn with salted butter. I can also appreciate the sweet and salty taste of both crispy bacons and maple syrup but prefer to avoid meat for my personal reasons... Being the vege person, I would say that sweet corn with salted butter is still my most favourite sweet and salty preference.Divine? This bread? ... I reckon this sweet and salty corn bread has quite a divine combination to me being soft, spongy, tasty and buttery. This bread recipe originates from the book, Magic Bread by Alex Goh. It uses the gelatinisation method and yields very soft, moist but sloppy bread dough. Based on my personal opinion, I wouldn't say that it is the gelatinized dough that makes the bread so soft and spongy and reckon that the higher liquid content might be the most possible reason. Like I said previously in most of bread baking posts, if the recipes are good, why re-invent the wheel?
Hope that you enjoy the sweet and salty looks of this buttery corn bread... Sorry that you have to bake it in order to taste it... LOL!

Here's the recipe from the book, Magic Bread by Alex Goh
(with my note and modification in blue)
80g bread flour
55g boiling water
320g bread flour
10g milk powder
6g instant yeast
150g cold water
2 egg yolks
150g whole kernel corn
(1 egg yolk plus 2 tbsp milk)
3 small slices of cold frozen butter, about 5g each
Add the boiling water from A into flour, mix until well-blended to form dough. Cover and set aside to cool. Keep it into refrigerator for at least 12 hrs.
Mix A, B and C, knead to form rough dough. Add in D, knead to form elastic dough.
Add in E, mix until well-blended. Let it proof for 45 mins.
Instead of kneading using electric mixer or by hand, I've placed all ingredients in list A, B, C and D into my breadmaker and used the "dough setting" with beeping option to add ingredient E at the later stage of kneading. The dough was kneaded and proved for 1 hr.
Divide the dough into 3 portions and mould it round. Let it rest for 10 mins. Flatten the dough and roll it into oblong shape. Place it into a greased baking tray or a loaf pan (15 cm x 25cm) Let it proof for 45 mins or until doubled in size.
Egg wash the surface. Using a blade knife, gently cut the surface and insert a slice of about 5g butter. Bake for pre-heated oven, 190°C (or 160°C fan forced) for 20-25 mins.
Note: Using this recipe, I have baked my bread in 15 cm x 25 cm loaf pan at 160°C fan forced for 25 mins.
