Marble Chocolate Bread 巧克力大理石面包

I know very little about bread baking even though my late father was a baker.  During my younger days, I used to follow my father to his confectionery shop during school holidays.  I remember that he was always the first to arrive at the shop to prepare bread dough from scratch, to cook kaya using charcoal stove..etc.  I may have more privileges compared to others in view of my exposure to bread making but I did not bake bread again after my attempts many years back with my first ‘home-made pizza’ and ‘hokkaido milk loaf’.  I find that kneading bread is a daunting task to novice baker like me and I most often prefer to buy it from the store.  Kneading is like doing a workout at the gym, it is very tiring.   However, this can be alleviated if you use a bread maker.  I do not have one and am still contemplating whether to buy.  So this bread is soley hand-made, and the end result is very rewarding. Now, I find that baking bread is not that difficult, albeit it is time-consuming.  I will definitely start baking more bread from now on.

Verdict : this bread is soft and delicious, and it stays soft even on the 3rd day.  

I would like to dedicate this post to the memory of my late father.
