Green Tea (Matcha) Bread/Bun

I like sweet bun or bread rather than regular dinner roll. I still have plenty of green tea powder (matcha)left in my pantry. Since our weather is freezing cold now ,utilized oven to bake is another option to warm up my kitchen. I also play around with the dough to create different shape and pattern ,it's quite interesting and fascinating to see the final result. Not to said this bread/bun is really moist and soft..


200 gm Bread flour
1 tbsp Instant dried yeast
1/2 cup Sugar
½ tsp Salt
30 g Unsalted butter (soft)
140 ml whole milk
1 cup Cheddar Cheese (grated)
1 tbsp bread improver*optional*
2 tbsp green tea powder(matcha)
1 egg plus 2 tbsp water

(I used bread machine to do the work) so if you don't have BM,use the step below)

1:Put the flour and yeast in a bowl, whisk to combine, add the sugar and salt whisk again. Pour the milk mixture into the bowl, use large spoon to mix everything together. Put the butter in the bowl and rub until all butter is distributed, and knead briefly to bring all the ingredients together.
2:Take the dough out of the bowl and divide dough into 2 portion.Mix match into the other portion and knead separately, until the dough is soft, smooth and elastic about 10 minutes.Put the dough into a light buttered bowl. Let the dough rise in a warm place until double in size about 1 hour. Line a baking paper in the pan and set aside.
3: Preheat the oven to 180°C/370 F. Take the dough out of the bowl. Gently press down the dough and shape to your desire shape and size before placed into prepared pan.
4: Brush egg wash over the dough then scatter cheddar cheese all over.

5:Let the dough rise until almost double in size.Bake for 25 or until the bread is golden and the cheese is slightly brown.
