Until today, haha, after trying it for many times, I can show you this bread.
The texture of this bread is very good, but the kneading time can be hard for someone who don't knead the bread by hand often. Because this bread contains a lot of butter, you need to knead the bread with the liquid before adding the butter, and make them will moisten. So, when after adding the butter, you will feel like the dough won't never come together but just keep on kneading it will getting better and become smooth.
For the filling, I just can't tell you the amount the you will need for the bread, it can be about 4 cups of flossy pork (it's up to your generosity, ^ ^). Actually I like to sprinkle some of them over the top of the bread too, but some of them will burn before the bread is done T T, anyway it's delicious, haha.
For the mayonnaise you can change into the salad cream if you want (but use the commercial one, not homemade), the taste of the bread will be sweet and salty, very delicious too.
Well, I really hope you will try this bread, and I really believe that you will enjoy this one.
This is what flossy pork look like, it's a pork that cooked with sugar, soy sauce and salt, until dry and turn into shredded.
You can find this one in Chinese supermarket.
Using Texas muffin pan
unsalted butter, softened

FILLING AND TOPPING

Put the bread flour, yeast and sugar in a bowl, whisk to combine, add and salt whisk again. Pour the liquids mixture into the bowl.
Use large spoon (or pastry scraper) to mix everything together, and knead briefly to bring all the ingredients together.
Take the dough out of the bowl and knead.
Knead by using the heel of your hands to compress and push the dough away from you, then fold it back over itself (see the picture here). Until all the dough are moisten.
Add the soften butter, give the dough a little turn and repeat. Put the weight of your body into the motion and get into a rhythm. Keep folding over and compressing the dough.
Knead for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is soft, pliable, smooth and slightly shiny, almost satiny, the dough will stop sticking to your hand.
Cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave the dough to prove for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F
Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1 cm (1/2 in) thick.
Squeeze the mayonnaise over the dough.
Sprinkle the flossy pork over the mayonnaise and squeeze the mayonnaise again.
Roll up the dough as you would a Swiss roll.
Then cut into 12 pieces, and place in the prepared pan, leave to prove under a tea towel for about 30 minutes.
Five minute before baking, squeeze the mayonnaise over the dough.
Put the bread in the oven, bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
