INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN 

Wonderful recipes require great elements. Right here’s how our recipes’ elements contribute to creating the easiest milk bread loaf, buns, and ropes.

WHOLE MILK: Milk is one in every of two elements used to make tangzhong, which is important for milk bread. The fats in entire milk provides tenderness and richness to the dough, leaving you with an extremely gentle loaf. Additionally, when the pure sugars in milk warmth at excessive temperatures, they bear the Maillard response, which includes browning in its finish levels, thus contributing to the distinct golden coloration of the crust.

GRANULATED SUGAR: It’s possible you’ll discover extra sugar on this bread recipe than others, however Japanese-style breads have increased fats and sugar ratios than Western-style breads. They work collectively to present you with extraordinarily supple bread. Sugar acts as meals for yeast, which converts it to carbon dioxide and alcohol within the fermentation course of. Consequently, sugar finally helps to tenderize the dough. The sugar additionally provides sweetness to stability the salt, contributes to the loaf’s golden coloration, improves the crumb texture, and helps retain moisture together with the tangzhong whereas the bread bakes and as soon as saved.

RED STAR® ALL-NATURAL ACTIVE DRY YEAST: An ordinary with regards to baking with yeast, Pink Star® All-Pure Energetic Dry Yeast is a reliable favourite for a cause. Yeast is important to many bread doughs, and our Milk Bread Dough recipe is not any exception. Yeast acts because the main leavening agent on this bread.

BREAD FLOUR: It could be tempting to substitute all-purpose flour for bread flour, however you gained’t get as a lot of an increase in your loaf and your mixing time can be longer. Bread flour is increased in protein and gluten, which permits bread dough to kind a secure construction and rise increased. Excessive-protein flour is important for this recipe to create a powerful gluten community with sufficient protein content material to develop the gluten and to deal with the enrichment added to this dough. A high-protein flour like bread flour gives sufficient construction to create a powerful gluten community for an enriched dough.

KOSHER SALT: It’s important to weigh your salt as a result of completely different salt crystals measure in a different way—dough with sufficient salt prevents the yeast from reproducing too quick, which supplies the baker extra management of the yeast fermentation. Salt additionally improves the crust’s golden coloration, strengthens gluten, and enhances the flavour.

EGG: Including egg to bread dough creates a fragile, tender crumb that leaves you with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. It not solely provides richness but in addition helps with leavening. Very like the leavening energy eggs lend to truffles and cookies, the water within the egg white helps create steam that puffs up your dough as soon as it encounters the heat of the oven. Eggs additionally give the proper golden shine to take advantage of bread with the assistance of an egg wash—an egg whisked with a little bit of milk that will get gently brushed onto all of our milk bread recipes proper earlier than going into the oven!

UNSALTED BUTTER: Butter provides an unimaginable decadence and taste to the enriched dough, creating moist, tender milk bread and a beautiful crust.

ALMOND EXTRACT, ALMOND MEAL, AND SLICED ALMONDS: Almond extract provides our Almond Cream Buns a fragile almond essence, and the almond meal gives taste and an exquisite texture to the cream. This bun’s crowning glory is a scattering of sliced almonds, including excellent crunchy distinction to the fluffy Milk Bread Dough.

SCALLIONS, SESAME OIL, AND GARLIC: Our Scallion Ropes are heady with the aroma of garlic and sesame oil and flecked with scallions, a.ok.a. inexperienced onions, lending the proper stability of savory to the slight sweetness in our Milk Bread Dough.

SESAME SEEDS AND FLAKED SEA SALT: Sesame seeds and sea salt add an exquisite crunch and taste to the Scallion Ropes.

TRUST IN THE TANGZHONG 

Preserve a detailed eye on the temperature whereas making the Tanzhong— a white roux product of milk and flour. If it overcooks, it loses its springiness and the moisture it provides to the Milk Bread Dough. 

 

1. In a small saucepan, whisk collectively milk and flour. Prepare dinner over medium-low warmth, whisking continually, till thickened, whisk leaves strains on backside of pan, and an instant-read thermometer registers 150°F (66°C). (Combination will appear to be mashed potatoes.) Switch to a small bowl, and let cool till an instant-read thermometer registers 130°F (54°C) or till room temperature. When making the Tangzhong, a digital thermometer can exactly measure when the starch within the flour gelatinizes. (Should you don’t have a thermometer, you’ll know when the Tangzhong is prepared by its thickness. It’ll resemble mashed potatoes.) The gelatinized starch within the Tangzhong creates a softer crumb and provides the bread an extended shelf life.

TIME TO SCALD 

Heating the milk to simply the precise temperature ensures the dough is heat sufficient for the proper first rise however not so scorching that it’ll kill the yeast

1. In a small saucepan, warmth milk over medium warmth till scalding. (An instant-read thermometer ought to register 180°F/82°C.) Let cool till an instant-read thermometer registers 110°F (43°C) to 115°F (46°C). Don’t skip this step! Scalding milk weakens the whey protein in it, permitting the yeast to do its job! Whey protein can weaken gluten and stop the dough from rising correctly.

2. In a small bowl, whisk collectively heat milk, 1 teaspoon (4 grams) sugar, and yeast. Let stand till foamy, 5 to 10 minutes. This step, also called “blooming” the yeast, is an easy option to dissolve your yeast and ensure it’s lively.

It’s time to mix all the Tangzhong with the remainder of the milk bread elements as we start the dough-making course of

 

1. Within the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk collectively 11⁄2 cups (190 grams) flour, salt, and remaining 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons (44 grams) sugar by hand. Add heat yeast combination, Tangzhong, and egg; utilizing the paddle attachment, beat at low pace till properly mixed. With mixer on low pace, step by step add 1 cup (127 grams) flour, beating simply till a shaggy dough comes collectively and stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Including the flour in two additions ensures all of the elements are evenly included into the dough.

THE KNEAD 

Permitting the stand mixer to do the kneading is vital to getting the proper dough consistency

1. Change to the dough hook attachment. Beat at low pace till dough is cheesy, elastic, and barely easy, about 8 minutes; add as much as remaining 1⁄4 cup (32 grams) flour, 1 tablespoon (8 grams) at a time, if dough is simply too sticky. Add butter, 1 tablespoon (14 grams) at a time, beating till mixed after every addition (about 5 minutes complete). Scrape sides of bowl and dough hook. Beat till dough is totally easy and passes the windowpane check, about 12 minutes. (See Word.) Prove dough onto a clear floor, and form right into a easy spherical. Because the butter is included, friction and warmth from the mixer will heat it, so the butter mustn’t be too heat, because it may soften and separate from the dough. However, if the butter is simply too chilly, it gained’t incorporate easily into the dough, and items of butter will stay even after an extended mixing time.

(Preserve remaining dough coated with plastic wrap to forestall it from drying out.) Fold every lengthy facet over towards heart by about 1⁄2 inch. Utilizing a rolling pin, flatten dough, ensuring it’s 5 inches large. Beginning with one quick facet, roll up dough right into a log, pinching seam to seal. (Watch out to not roll up dough too tight.) Place, seam facet down, in heart of ready pan. Repeat with remaining dough, inserting equidistant between heart dough and sides of pan. Cowl and let rise in a heat, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) till puffed and holds an indentation when pressed, about 45 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

4. In a small bowl, whisk collectively egg and remaining 1 tablespoon (15 grams) milk. Brush prime of dough with egg wash. The egg wash provides the loaf a shiny, darkish gold crust.

5. Bake till an instant-read thermometer inserted in heart registers 190°F (88°C), about 40 minutes, masking with foil midway by baking. Let cool in pan for five minutes. Take away from pan, and let cool fully on a wire rack earlier than slicing.
