I’ve tried different recipes but bread was never perfect like this one. Soft,fluffy, little sweet.. umm I am hooked. This Japanese bread is just perfect. We bought milk bread loaf from one of the bakery store in Mid Valley.Milk bread was not like our regular white bread, it had more soft and different texture. I found the recipe with a secret ingredient.

Secret ingredient of milk bread is Tangzhong. I read about it in kirbiecravings blog. I found her blog while searching for milk toast bread. She has such a wonderful blog. She mentioned that bread can be kept soft and fluffy for week if you use Tangzhong. Making Tangzhong is very easy. First you mix water and flour and then cook it and cool it.

step (1 of 1)-2 step (1 of 1)-5

I don’t have bread maker, so I kneaded dough for around 30 minutes till it became non sticky and soft.

Try this recipe, I am sure you’ll love it.
