Hokkaido Bread

For a while I seen many Asian blogger baked Hokkaido bread but I never try this bread yet.Looking at the bread texture ,it's look white,soft and moist. Recently I saw Aunty Lily from Lily's Wai Sek Hong baked this Hokkaido bread and remind myself ,it's a MUST BAKE bread for me to do!.Too bad I don't have a bread machine to make this bread...Last few days I'm looking high and low at Thrifty store or Goodwill store for good bargain bread machine as suggested by Aunty Lily but sadly none is available. Maybe I should just buy a new one soon..Anyway ,I used my bread hook in mixer to make this bread. My kitchen is frigging cold , it's took the dough overnight to proof . The outcome : this bread is really soft but my bread color is yellow instead of white ..Wonder what happened? *shrug* Hubby said this bread taste more like cake than bread!! *grin*

Recipe excerpt and adapt from Lily's
1 cup Whole milk
5 fl oz Whipping cream
1 large Egg
1 1/2 tsp Salt
5 tbsp Sugar
3 tbsp Milk powder
4 cups Bread flour
1/2 cup Cake flour
3 tsp Instant yeast


1: Sift bread flour,cake flour,salt and milk powder in a large bowl.Combine all above ingredients in mixer bowl,use bread hook at low speed to knead until all well combine.
2:Remove dough from mixing bowl to large bowl when it's form like a ball. Cover dough with towel,let it's proof until double size on kitchen counter ( Overnight prefer if kitchen is too cold)
3: Punch down the dough,knead again and roll dough down and up .Grease 2 loaf pans.Place each roll into a loaf pan. Let the dough rise up to double.
4:Brush with egg wash or milk.Bake dough in a preheated 350 F oven for about 40 minutes.
5: Remove bread from oven,let it's rest 10-15 minutes before serve.

I too saw this bread popping up in blogs and I am tempted to make it. Can you let me know if this bread is still soft the next day?

So, is it a bread that must be made in a mixer? Honestly, I tend to stay away from mixer-only breads.

Gert,after 3 days this bread still soft,provided you must store in air tight container..Maybe you should use half the recipe.We only eat I loaf so far.

Thank you:) taste good eh?

oh yea!! hope to see your posting soon!!

I think you can knead with hands if you want try and see how it's come out!! but..since I have mixer I better use it,right?

I would love to make this bread as it reminds me of bread in Singapore but my hubby don't like sweet bread so if I do bake them, I'm the only who eats it :(

The bread is yellow is due to the type of flour you use.

This is a sweet bread then as opposed to a sandwich bread? It sounds easy and yummy! Thank you ;o)

This bread is REALLY yummy...I just tried this bread a couple of weeks ago too :) but was too quick to dig into it no time to take pictures!!LOL..
I saw Lily's advice on getting the bread maker from the thrift store too..I bought my sunbeam one from WalMart it was about 50 I think but I think is worth it of course if you could get it from the thrift store it would be a better deal. I just want to ask you to try craigslist too but be aware where you get stuff from there. What ever I get from there I would make sure about the neighborhood AND make sure you go with your hubby to look at it before you buy it. So far I've been lucky there. Good luck hope you get a bread machine soon because I love mine and I think is a great investment.:)
p/s: Great blog and thanks for sharing the recipes you've tried.:)
