Japanese Condensed Milk Bread

Recipe adapted from Winnie's kitchen work, (original from  http://cookpad.com/recipe/1674665) this Japanese Condensed Milk Bread was posting like 'hot cake' ... opps ... perhaps 'hot bread' would be more appropriate, in the blogosphere last month. All so perfectly baked, just to name a few:-

With the encouragement given by Jozelyn (thank you ^-^), I was very motivated to bake bread again ... even though I haven't acquired the very basic 'master chef skills' in bread baking. So, I 敢敢冲呀 !! >~<
Well, luckily the bread turned out good ^-^ phew !任务完成了!不用吞口水了! Hee hee ..

My small cosy reading corner ^-^
Replicate the methods shared by Jozelyn and Tze that I could follow as I don’t have bread machine and air fryer :
Japanese Condensed Milk Bread 
日式练乳面包
Ingredients for bread:
200g bread flour
25g condensed milk
120g milk
10g sugar
3g dry instant yeast
3g salt
20g butter (salted butter at room temperature)

sticky sauce:
25g condensed milk
25g butter (salted butter at room temperature)
mix well

Topping:
some almond flakes, sun flower seeds
some dried apricot & raisins

Method:
1. Mix all ingredients for bread in the mixing bowl (except butter), knead the dough using the cake mixer with dough hook to form rough dough, add butter and knead until smooth elastic film.

2. Cover the dough and proof it until double in size.

3. Punch out the air in the dough, flatten the dough to a rectangle size 12" x 8"

4. Apply a layer of sticky sauce on the dough, cut into four strips. Stack up the dough and cut into eight portions. (Opps ... I just cut cut cut ... didn’t count how many portions)

5. Place the dough, straight side up in the lightly grease chiffon pan (I used a 21cm pan). Let it proof to cover the whole chiffon pan. 
After 2nd proofing about 1:5hrs
6. Brush the top of the dough with remaining sticky sauce and sprinkle the crushed nuts & dried fruits of your choice on top.

7. Bake at 165°C for 25mins.
Ta da ! Freshly baked ! Yummy
My teens gave a big thumbs up to this bread. For all you know ...  almost 3/4 of the bread had disappeared within minutes!
A cool sunny afternoon ... Enjoy my coffee break with freshly baked Japanese Condensed Milk Bread ... yummy! 

Thanks for the wonderful sharing by blogger pals ^-^  Indeed this bread recipe is a keeper ... really delicious soft and fluffy.
