日式炼乳奶油吐司 • Japanese Condensed Milk Bread

Recently this 日式炼乳奶油吐司 • Japanese Condensed Milk Bread seemed to be quite popular and I decided to give it a try and see how delicious it was.


I loved the unevenness of the bread, topped with almond flakes and dusted the bread off with generous icing sugar.


This bread had a very soft and fluffy texture, with the buttery & milky taste. 

This bread had also remained soft even up til the 3rd day of the bake.


I had baked these Japanese Condensed Milk Bread in two different pans, you can read them in the method below.




日式炼乳奶油吐司 • Japanese Condensed Milk Bread
Recipe as adapted from 肉桂打噴嚏Homemade Kitchen
Original recipe:HB♪練乳マーガリンのスイートリースパン





Ingredients

200g bread flour
20g sugar
3g tsp salt
3g instant yeast
25g condensed milk
130g milk
20g unsalted butter

Condensed Milk Filling
20g condensed milk
20g unsalted butter

Topping
15g sliced almond
icing sugar for dusting


Method:

1. Put all the bread ingredients into your mixer bowl, knead on Medium speed for about 7~10 minutes to get a smooth, pliable dough. Allow it to proof for about 30 minutes, or until the dough doubles up in size.

2. Meantime, place the Condensed Milk Filling ingredients into another bowl and allow the butter to soften. Mix the condensed milk + soften butter to get a smooth paste.
*Just leave the butter & condensed milk in a bowl at room temperature. The butter will soften, and you will be able to mix it into a smooth paste.
*Melting of the butter is NOT required.


3. Once proofing is ready, roll the dough into a rectangular shape (fig. 1). Spread the condensed milk filling (fig. 2) onto it, and cut the dough into 4 equal strips (fig. 3). Stack the dough strips onto one another and cut them into 8 equal parts (fig. 4).


4. Place them into a 8-inch chiffon pan and allow them to proof for the 2nd time, about 30-40 minutes. 

This is a 6-inch chiffon tube pan.

This is a 8-inch cake pan.

5. Sprinkle some almond flakes on the ready dough and bake them in a preheated oven of 150C for about 20-25 minutes. Remove the bread from the bread pan and dust them generously with icing sugar.


Note:
-Different oven varies different temperature. Kindly adjust accordingly to your oven temperature.
-You can use different sizes of cake pans or muffin trays to make these bread.

  3. For the condensed milk filling, do u need to double boil the condensed milk with the butter in order to soften the butter? Will try to bake this bread soon.

    1. HI Amanda, just leave the butter together with the condensed milk at room temperature.
      The butter will soften and you can mix it together with the condensed milk to form into a smooth paste. :)
