Nostalgic Milk Bread

Nostalgic Milk Bread

This is an old-fashioned, nostalgic sweet bread with lots of milk in the dough. Please enjoy these rolls plain. This bread is so light and fluffy that you can't stop yourself.


○Bread (strong) flour
170 g
○Cake flour
30 g
○Skim milk
5 g
25 g
2 g
20 g
140 g
Condensed milk
10 g
○Dry yeast
3 g


1. Put all the dry ○ ingredients, except salt, in a bowl.
2. Combine the milk and condensed milk, and warm to 35°C in the microwave. If you can't measure the temperature, heat until it is warm to the touch.
3. Add the liquid from Step 2 to the bowl from Step 1, aiming at the yeast. Mix well. When the dough comes together, move to a work surface and start kneading.
4. After kneading for 3 minutes, add the salt. Knead for 2 minutes more, then add the margarine and keep kneading.
5. Leave to rise at 30°C for an hour (1st rising). Punch the dough dough lightly, round it off again and leave to rest for 30 minutes. Divide and form the dough. The 2nd rising should be done at 35 °C for 40 minutes.
6. For detailed instructions, see "Best Hand-Kneaded Fluffy Rolls" - Recipe ID: 869567.
7. I wanted to make them pull-apart style like I remember, so after forming each roll, I tried sticking them together.
8. After the 2nd rising, preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush the tops with milk in the meantime. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, and the bread is done.
9. It's a fluffy, light, tender, and delicate bread. When taking them out of the oven, use a spatula.
10. Attention! If you use chopsticks or tongs to take the rolls out, they'll get smushed!
