Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Bread. My living room is filled with sweet flavour of cinnamon aroma fragrant:) I love it!

Slightly chewy texture from the addition of oats, and the warm flavour of cinnamon. It was delicious..:)
There are many way to make a loaf of bread. Today I'm trying out this 65C TangZhong（汤種）method which said to produce soft and bouncy bread, and which keeps bread well too. Tangzhong starter / Water roux starter is a mixture of flour and water. That is to combine together one portion of bread flour and five portions of water by weight in a pot. Heat up the mixture to bring out the gelatinization of starch in flour. What makes the bread baked with this kind of starter difference is Starch Gelatinization, which helps to engage more water, namely more water will be absorbed, to provide a characteristic softer, more elastic-textured bread. Moreover, the bread will have long-lasting freshness.
To make this TangZhong,
Used 250ml water and 50g of bread flour.
Mix flour and water till it is smooth in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat and stirring contantly with a hand whisk to prevent it from burning. You will see lots of small bubbles forming on top. Keep stirring and when the bubbles disappeared, you will see trace in the mixture for every stir you make with the hand whisk. Stop at this stage and you will have the 65C TangZhong. Pour the hot Tangzhong into a bowl and cover it with a cling wrap toughing the surface of the mixture, to prevent a film forming on the TangZhong. Leave to cool before using it.
Here is the picture of the Tangzhong（汤種）
165g bread flour
70g rolled oats soaked in 115g hot water, leave to cool
75g wholemeal flour
55g egg beaten lightly

Punch dough down to release the air and rest dough for 10 minutes.
Roll dough into a flat rectangular shape, brush it with the melted butter from the filling and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly on it.
