1. In a heat-safe bowl add butter. Microwave for about 30 sec. Butter will be softened but not melted.
2. Add bread flour, gluten flour, sugar, salt, egg + water and softened butter in the pan of your bread machine. Add yeast in your machine's yeast compartment. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
3. When the dough cycle is complete, remove it from the machine and place on a floured surface.
4. Punch the dough down and divide it in 8 pieces. Cover it with a damp cloth. Let it rest for about 15min.
5. Shape each piece into a round ball then flatten them. Arrange on lined baking trays (or burger buns mold). Cover and let rise for 40~60min in a warm place or until the dough has doubled in volume.
6. Bake in a preheated 180℃ oven for about 10min. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
1. In a heat safe bowl, add chocolate and melt it completely using a hot bath (about 50℃). Then add the corn flakes (crushed) and mix well. Spread over the baking tray and chill in the fridge until it has set.
2. In a bowl add egg yolk. Pour the milk little by little, and mix. Add sugar and mix. Transfer the milk mix into a small pan and heat up to 75~80℃ over medium heat, turn the heat to low and simmer for 3min, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
3. Using a fine mesh filter (your usual sieve will do), strain the milk into a heat-safe bowl, then add inverted sugar and condensed milk. Mix well to melt. Let it cool down completely in the water bath.
4. Once the milk mixture is cooled completely, add heavy cream. Mix well.
5. Transfer the ice cream mixture into your compressor ice cream maker and let it run according to manufacturer's instructions. It should take 40~60min, depending on how cold the mixture is. In case, you should let it run until the mixture turns thick and creamy.
6. Bring out the chocolate flakes from the fridge and crush them to even smaller pieces. Transfer the ice cream to a storage container, adding the chocolate flakes in. Mix them together. Chill until it has set!
20g white chocolate (optional) - cut into small pieces
1. Preheat the oven to 180℃ degree.
2. Place flour, black cocoa powder and sugar in a food processor and process to mix, then add butter, water and milk. Re-process the machine and run until blended well (until the dough turns like a crumbly ball).
3. Transfer the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead it to shape into a circle. Roll out the dough to about 0.3 to 0.5 cm thickness square shape and cut them into a long stick shape using the knife.
4. Place them on the baking sheet you prepared.
5. Bake them for about 10 to 12 mins. Let the pocky cool down completely.
If you want to decorate with white chocolate

2. Add all bread ingredients and the yudane from #1 in the pan of your bread machine (as per manufacturer instructions) add yeast in the yeast compartment. Select dough cycle and press start.
3. When the dough cycle is complete, remove and place it on a floured surface. Punch the dough down and cover it with a wet cloth. Take bench time for 15~20min.
4. Grease the pan (I used a 18x18cm square mold). Punch the dough down, divide them into even-sized pieces (16 pieces) and place them in the mould. Note : leave some space between balls, the dough will double in size. Cover and let the dough rise in a warm place (or an oven at 35℃) until the dough has doubled in volume for about 40 to 60 min depend on season.
5. Sprinkle the flour lightly over the leavened bread and pre-heat the oven to 170℃. Reduce to 160℃ and bake it for about 15 min.
6. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
