Hokkaido Milk Bread (one proofing)

My first experience with Hokkaido Milk Bread was back in 2006.  Back then, I have zero knowledge of bread making and that recipe was the first successful recipe that I had attempted.

Ten years later, I am attempting it again but this time with only one proofing.  
I wonder why we need to do two proofing in the past?  Any bread expert out there who can enlighten me?

Findings: As far as my memory can stretch, this bread really live up to standard.  It is soft and fluffy and most importantly, I know there isn't any preservative used.

I will try this recipe again with a double proofing to see the difference some time later.

What you need:

600g bread flour
10g instant yeast
30g milk powder
80g sugar
8g salt
1 egg
250ml milk
150ml whipping cream

egg wash


Greased a baking loaf pan.

Mix all ingredients together to form a rough dough.

Knead until it is smooth and piable.

Divide dough into 4.

Using a rolling pin, roll into a long rectangle.

Roll down to form a roll.

Place into 4 rolls into the baking loaf pan and let it rest for 1 hour.

Glaze with egg wash. (I should have omitted this since I am using a close lid bread pan).

Bake at 170°C for 30 – 40 mins.


There are many occasions that I bought the same book without realizing until I reached home.

Since I have an extra copy of this book and thus I would love to give this away (only applicable to Singapore).

If you are interested, just leave me a comment and your email address.  Entry should be submitted not later than 31 August 2016.  Still enough time for you to try out the recipe from the book.

If I have more than one request, then I will go by balloting.

Do join in the fun.



  1. Love to have the recipe book.

    Thanks for your sharing on the bread recipe.

  2. Ooo... I would love to have that book. <>

  3. Hi Rumbling Tummy, if I am not wrong, I think double proofing loaf stays soft longer up till about 3 days.

    As for buying the same book, what I usually did was I went back to the shop and exchange the double purchase with something else.
