This Asian milk bread 牛奶麵包 (aka Hokkaido milk bread) is so fluffy and rich in milk flavor that you’ll never be able to go back to the regular white bread again.
Follow my detailed step-by-step instruction on how to craft the softest milk bread by incorporating TangZhong 湯種 (aka water roux). You’ll be amazed how much better this is than the bread from your local Chinese/Asian bakeries.

*Clarification: if this is your first time making this recipe, you can skip the reserved dough. However if you’d like to make this bread regularly, I’d strongly recommend saving a small portion of dough as suggested in the video.
