Asian Milk Bread

I always found Asian bread to be much softer than Belgian bread. I like Asian bread more. When I'm in Hong Kong I can really enjoy that bread, which I can't find here in Belgium. So what's the solution? Make it myself of course. I used this recipe. It takes almost 4 hours to do it, so do it when you have too much time.

The ingredient that makes that bread soft is called: Tang Zhong.

It looks like this: It is pretty easy to make.

Just mix the following for 5 minutes while on low heat:
  • 25 g flour
  • 100 ml milk

Let it rest in the fridge for 1 day.

Then I mixed the following ingredients. Knead it for 20 minutes:
  • 330g bread flour
  • 115g chilled water roux (TangZhong
  • 1 large egg, about 60g
  • 5g active yeast + 35ml warm milk
  • 70ml heavy cream
  • 50g sugar
  •  4g salt
This is the result:

 Then I add butter and knead it for 10 minutes:
  • 30g butter, softened in room temperature

This is the result:

We let it rest for 1-2 hours in a warm place.

Then we knead it for 5 minutes and make 4 balls of it and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Then we roll them out with a rolling pin and fold them like this.

We let it rest for another 10 minutes.

Then flatten them out with a rolling pin again and roll them up afterwards. We put them in the casserole and let it rise for 1.5 hours.

Then we add egg wash on it and bake it for 15 minutes at 180 °C. Then put an aluminum sheet on it and bake further for 20 minutes.

This is the result.

You can even make these pineapple buns with it:
