Hi aunty

I would like to try this bread recipe but I am a little stumped in the directions.
1) Does the dough ingredient use salted butter or unsalted?
2) For the filling, is it melted butter? and do you use unsalted or regular butter? It will be pastelike after mixed?
2) After the filling is put into the dough and rolled out into rectangle, won't the filling be squashed or leaked out?

I am new to bread making, so I have lots to ask! Thank you.

Hi Jennifer,

any butter is acceptable but preference will be given to unsalted butter.

For filling, I prefer salted butter.

You must seal properly and it normally will leak slightly.

Hello Aunty Yochana,

I would like to ask you if it is possible to make bread without using the bread mixer?

Thanks in advance!
