Simple & Springy Beignet-Style Bread

This tastes great freshly baked with salted butter.

Ingredients: 2 people

★Cake flour
75 g
★Strong bread flour
75g
★Baking powder
5 g
★Dry yeast
3 g
★Sugar
1 tablespoon
★Salt
1 g
○Milk (50~70°C)
120ml
○Condensed milk
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Add all of the ★ ingredients to a bowl and mix well with an egg beater.
2. Place the ○ ingredients into a cup, and dissolve the condensed milk. (The big bowl in the back is just the mixed Step 1).
3. Once the powdered ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together, add in Step 2 all at once, mix with a fork or cooking chopsticks, and then knead for about 10 minutes.
4. Once it all comes together smoothly, cover with parchment paper then with plastic wrap, and let the dough sit for about 5 minutes.
5. If it's cold out, place it into a bowl with the bottom in a hot water bath at about 60°C.
6. Stretch out the dough to about 5mm thick, cut into squares, and score the surface (cut notches).
7. Boil oil to 170°C, and fry while flipping over occasionally until golden brown all over and plump.
8. I fried up some bread with the same thickness, one without scoring and the other scored. This is how differently they plump up.
9. You can use 2 tablespoons of sugar if you don't have condensed milk If you don't want it to be sweet, then use just 1 tablespoon of sugar.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to eat bread without using the oven...
This turned out tone like beignet bread (also known as fritters) that doesn't harden even after cooling.
