Easy Homemade Danish Bread Loaf

This easy and delicious Danish loaf is prepared like "Milk-Rich Bread" (Recipe ID: 876679) with frozen puff pastry dough. It's a big hit in my household!

Ingredients: Makes 2 loaves

"Milk-Rich Bread" (Recipe ID: 876679)
Frozen puff pastry
100 g x 2

Steps

1. Follow the directions for "Milk-Rich Bread" until the first rising.
2. Divide the frozen puff pastry into 3 equal sections. Place it onto the bread dough.
3. Fold over the edges of the dough and fold in thirds starting from the side close to you. Turn it 90 degrees, roll out the dough and fold in thirds again. Repeat the process about 5 times.
4. Roll the dough into a ball. Align 3 balls into a loaf pan and leave it for the second rising. Wait until it fills up 80% of the loaf pan.
5. Bake it at 180℃ for 30 minutes and it is done. It looks like a regular loaf, but the crust is crunchy and delicious.
6. It collapsed a little bit since I sliced it while it was still freshly baked, but the taste of this buttery bread was incredible.
7. I used 2 sheets from this puff pastry. 1 sheet was 100 g.
8. If you are eating it the next day, toast. It'll still be crunchy, chewy and scrumptious.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love Danish bread, but it's a lot of trouble to make.
I heard that it can be made with frozen puff pastry, so I came up with our family's favorite "Milk-Rich Bread" (Recipe ID: 876679).
