Fluffy milk bread Recipe Procedure:
Into the cup of a warm milk, add in sugar and stir then add in the active dry yeast. Stir and keep aside for 5 minutes to activate. The mixture should form foams and increase in volume. This is a sign that the yeast is active.
In another bowl, add in all dry ingredients and stir to fully combined.
Add in the egg, and the yeast mixture and mix using a spatula until everything combines.
Turn the dough over to a work surface and knead. This should be much more easier and less time consuming if you use a stand mixer but if you do not have one, just go ahead and knead with your hands.
This kneading process should take about 20 – 30 minutes until dough becomes stretchy.
Cover the dough with a dry towel and keep in a warm place to proof for 1 hour.
You will notice that the dough doubled its size after an hour.
Punch the dough downwards and turn it over to the work surface again. Using a rolling stick , roll out the dough taking off some of those air bubbles.
Using a pizza cutter, cut out the dough into different sizes, roll them up like fish rolls and place into the baking pan. I recommend you watch the video Here for better understanding.
Keep the dough again for another 30 minutes to proof in a warm place. While this is going on, preheat the oven at 160 degrees Celsius.
Glaze the dough with egg wash and bake for 20 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius in the oven
Fluffy milk bread Using A Pot Method
You should use white sand because it distributes and retains heat more. You can also use stones in place of sand. You can see how I did that Here.
Place some white sand in a pot, cover it up and let it heat for 10 minutes on medium heat. Place the bread dough into the pot and cover it up tight making sure that you prevent heat from escaping. You can do this by adding heavy objects on the cover of the pot. Baking time should be about 20 – 25 minutes.
You can see here that the bread began baking already. The challenge with this method is that it may not have the brown finish at the top of the bread because there is no direct heat from above. You will have to flip the bread over after it is properly baked. let the top of the bread be on the baking pan. Let it bake again for about 5 -10 more minutes.
