Milk Bread (Herman starter) Air fryer

Since I have no one to pass on the Herman Starter, I needed another recipe to use this starter. 

Saw CC posted her experience with this recipe using Herman starter and I was game to try too.

Findings: I am not sure whether it is due to my starter but I had problem getting the volume for the 1st proofing.  Since it was late, I left it in the fridge to proof overnight. 

It did not double in volume when it was in the fridge as well so I thought I might as well complete the process.  If it failed, it will goes into the bin.  

Surprisingly, after let it out to proof in the microwave oven with a hot towel, my bread finally awake and rose nicely.    This is seriously a slooow ferment day but I am happy that my patience paid off.

Thanks to CC for giving me the assurance last night too.

The texture is really nice and soft.  Totally love it.

Now I don't have to clank up the oven on this hot day to enjoy a nice fluffy bun.

Definitely a keeper!
