Pink Marble Sweet Bun 火龙果牛奶面包

Added a little red dragon fruit purée to the sweet milk bun recipe to create a pink swirling pattern to the sweet and soft bread. I was happy to see the red pigment stayed the same at the end of the baking process.
I recently learned that the tiny seeds of the red dragon fruit contain the omega-3 fatty acid which is beneficial to the heart health. Maybe I should try a whole bread loaf of red dragon fruit next round 😁

Bread weight: 450g

Bread dough

Mix the 2/5 portion with the red dragon fruit dough from (1).

Knead into a smooth dough and place in a greased bowl, cover with cling wrap.

Let both doughs proof till the end of the kneading program.

When the program ends, allow the doughs to proof for another 20 minutes.

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

10. Roll out the dough into a flat rectangular sheet. Dust with flour and set aside.
