We like to slice it thick, spread with butter, sprinkle with coarse sugar and toast it. 这北海道牛奶面包,我做了N次. 不过不知道为什么没发上这超好吃的贴子^_^ 这次就趁着'Bake Along #52 的主题' 北海道牛奶面包'把的好好吃,百吃都不腻的 好面包..贴上了^_^*

Nice and Dark...a bit too dark:p

Our breakfast for tomorrow:D明天的早餐 ^_^

Recipe source: adapted from Rasa Malaysia and Angie’s Recipes
Method: Straight dough
(i make half of the recipe)
270 g bread flour30 g cake flour (i used all purpose flour)125ml milk75ml whipping cream1/2 egg (about 32 g)15 g milk powder40 g castor sugar1 1/4 tsp dry yeast1 tsp salt
  1. Grease 1 bread tin. (mine 10.5cm x 19cm x 10.5cm)
  2. Put milk, whipping cream, egg, flour, milk powder, salt, sugar and yeast into the bread machine. Set to Dough function. After the dough has finished it’s kneading cycle, let it proof inside the machine for 45-50 minutes or till it is double in size.
  3. Remove from the pan and divide dough into 2 equal portions and shape into a ball. 
  4. On a lightly floured surface, flatten the ball and roll out in a rectangle shape. Roll it up again tightly like swiss roll. (refer pic a)
  5. Put it in the greased bread tin. Repeat with the second ball. ( Put 2 balls into a bread tin)
  6. Set aside and let it proof for about 1 hr or till it rises till it fills up about 75% of the bread tin.
  7. Bake at 190C for about 50-55 minutes if you cover the cake tin. If you do not cover the cake tin, 40 minutes of baking time is enough. (i baked mine for 38 minutes with out  the cover)
If you do not have a bread machine, mix the dry ingredients with wet ingredients and knead on medium speed with a stand mixer until the dough is smooth, non sticky, and elastic.

Happy Baking :D

I am submitting this post to Bake-Along #52 hosted by Zoe from Bake for Happy kids


  1. Hi Doreen,
    Your bread bakes up tall and proud! Lovely! I am wishing that I have some for breakfast tomorrow! I love it spread with a generous spread of salted cold butter. With a mug of hot kopi-O! Delicious!
    Thanks for linking to Bake-Along!

    1. Hi Joyce,
      Yes, a cup of kopi-o will be so satisfying to go with this..:)

  2. I can see that this bread is indeed soft and very baked. I think it is great to eat it as it own too; as to dipped into my kopi-o or milo.

    1. Mel,
      Oh yes, it is good eat on it own and of course with kopi-o ;D

  3. what a nice bread basket for breakfast

  4. Hi Joyce,
    More then happy to link this to Bake Along :)

  5. Love how tall your bread looks, I wondered why we need to bake it in 3 or 4 rolls but my guess is it will help in the rise factor and not have big crumbs in the middle?

  6. 好美的北海道牛奶面包!

  7. Must be very fragrant with the cream inside.

  8. mui mui, I wish I can taste your bread! I will eat half a loaf hee..hee...
