8. Dig a hole and pour in the instant dry yeast.

9. Place the bread pan into the bread machine.

10. Select "8" Dough Kneading function; and press "Start".

11. When the program stops, let the dough continue to sit in the pan for another 15 minutes.

The dough is ready.

12. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface. Flatten it with your palm to release the trapped air.

13. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions, about 53g each.

14. Roll up the small dough, pull down the sides several times to stretch out the dough surface, and seal at the bottom. Lightly coat with some flour and place on a plate, cover with a lid, and rest for 15 minutes.

15. After the rest, roll out the dough.

Place a green bean paste to the centre of the dough, wrap it up and seal tightly.

Wrap your palm around the dough and let it roll within your palm, to shape it. Coat the dough with a thin layer of flour.

16. Place the dough into the lined rice cooker pot. Close the lid and turn on the "keep warm" mode for 30 secondsOnly need to raise the pot temperature slightly. Let the doughs proof for about 30 minutes.

Keep warm for 30 seconds.

17. After the final proofing is done, close the lid and turn on the "Cake" function. Although the cake function will take 45 minutes to complete, you can stop the process at around 30 minutes after the baking starts.

To check whether the bread is cooked, just lightly press the top crust, if the crust springs back to its original form, then the bread is cooked. Otherwise, you need to continue the baking.

After stopping the "cake" baking program, let the bread stays in the warm rice cooker for 15 minutes.

The bread is ready :)
