TangZhong Hokkaido Bread 北海道牛奶麵



Last week was a very busy week . There were so many orders for my Grinded peanut Zhang. I did not even have time to post the famous Hokkaido bread recipe. The bread picture posted here was taken after two days. The bread was still very soft and flaky even after two days. When I made the bread, I did not have whipping cream and whipping cream was expensive and I was not willing to buy since I only required a little bit only and so I substituted with milk powder and lemon juice . The original recipe also called for bread flour but I read some where plain flour could also be used for making bread and it turned out just as good.

Tangzhong Starter dough
1/2 Cup (120ml) Water
1/4 Cup (24g) Bread Flour

Method of making starter dough:
1. Mix flour in water well without any lumps. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring consistently until gluey and starchy. Remove from heat.
2. Transfer into a clean bowl. Cover with a cling wrap to prevent from drying up. Let cool. Chill in fridge for at least one hour. Then the batter is ready to be used.
