Well, toying what to bake on my weekend .... let's see ..
Cupcakes? Nah ... don't feel like having butter creamy stuff.
Muffin? Just baked Jam-Doughnut muffin.
Bread? Hmm ... should I .. should I not ...
To be honest, I still have not cultivated my fond interest in bread baking even though I've tried twice.
I've bookmarked this bread recipe which I love the lovely design.
Okay! Better to get things started on a sunny morning before it rain in the afternoon ... hee ... hee! It's time for playdough with some flour ^-^! As only 2 of us, I halved the recipe and made only the wheat design portion.

Recipe source: Seasons and Suppers
I halved the recipe below my slightly modified version :
90ml cup warm water
1 teaspoon instant or dry active yeast
250 gm all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 tablespoon honey
Pinch of salt
Add yeast to warm water, stir and allow to sit for a few minutes. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, add the flour.
Add the yeast/water mixture, the honey, oil and salt. Mix the dough until it comes together, adding a bit more water or flour, as necessary, then knead by hand or with your dough hook, into a soft, smooth dough. (I added about 2 tablespoons of water as the dough rather dry)
Place the dough into a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place until it has doubled in size, about 30-60 minutes.
When the dough has doubled, place on a lightly floured surface and knead for a minute or so.
Divide the *dough and roll with your palms to shape it to oval shape and knead/adjust the design.
* 6 : 50g each
3 : 30g each
Remaining for ribbons
To make the wheat, use some clean kitchen scissors to snip v-shaped.
Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C until golden and cooked through, about 15 - 17 minutes.
