Softmeal Bacon loaf [Using Zoji BM]

B stand for Bread. Bread act a very important role in our life as we had it for breakfast almost everyday. B also stand for Bacon. By adding in this savory ingredient sure give extra fragrant & taste to the ordinary bread. I am happy with the bake as it is really soft and so nice until it can be eaten by its own without any spread. Do give it a try, I am sure you will love it and make it again.

Tools: Zojirushi Bread Maker


  1. Activating the BM to soft bread mode which need 3hrs for my Zoji BM. Take out the bread tin and start adding in the ingredients.
  2. Add in the milk, honey and pre-dough into Zoji BM first.
  3. Follow by the bread flour.
  4. Add in the sugar, salt & milk powder at 4 side of the Zoji BM
  5. Dig a small burrow in the bread flour and add in the instant yeast.
  6. Put the bread tin back into the BM and wait for the machine to start kneading.
  7. Once everything form into a dough, add in the butter (Abt 5mins after the kneading) and continue to let the BM do the kneading. 
  8. Once the BM's beep, add in the bacon and let it continue to knead. 
  9. Let the BM do the rest of the job, after the whole process end, (For me, at 1.30hr left, i will take out the kneading blade from the BM and shape the dough into a nice ball and place it back to the BM for final proving and bake) you will have a loaf of yummy bacon loaf.
  10. Bring out the loaf from the bread tin immediately after it is baked. Left it on a cooling rack & let it cool down completely before slicing it.
Taglicious's Note: 

  • Try to clear the loaf on the same day as it contains bacon else keep it in the fridge and re-heat again before consume.
  • Every brand of BM is different, please add the dry and wet ingredients as per your machine's instruction. 
Nothing fancy, serve the bread with a slice of cheese! Breakfast is done!
