  • a : cust rd t ngzhong(w ter roux st rter )
  • 65 ml milk
  • b
  • 250g high grade/protein flour (bread flour )
  • (i ran out of high protein flour, i had only 200g, i replaced with 50g whole meal flour)
  • 1 tsp (5g) instant dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100 ml water
  • cup


  1. Mixed all A ingredients in a small pot, use egg beater to stir well, bring to stove at low heat, stir until form traces. Remove from heat and let it cool at room temperature (1 hour) before use or Wrap mixture with plastic wrap and leave in refrigerator overnight.
  3. Pour bread flour into mixing bowl; add in the rest of ingredients A. However, avoid having the salt come in direct contact with the yeast which might dehydrate and kill the yeast.
  4. Add in ingredients B and use spatula to mix the dough until the dough was too sticky to move then start using hands to knead the dough in the mixing bowl.
  5. Initially, you will experience very gluey dough, just continue to mangling with the dough, after 10 minutes it will gradually firm up.
  6. Once the dough firm up, you can start to knead the dough on a clean, smooth surface that's at a comfortable height. I did not flour the surface, the more I knead the dough the less sticky the dough became.
  7. It took me at least another 10-15 minutes to knead to transform the initial glob of gooey dough into smooth dough which ready for the final ingredient C.
  8. Check to evaluate on the gluten development of the dough before adding in butter. The dough should be stretchy.
  9. Place the dough back into mixing bowl and pour in melted butter, knead to combine.
  10. Be prepared to deal with oily dough for another 5 minutes before the butter totally blend in.
  11. Once the dough was not so oily, move back to kneading surface and continues to knead until forming smooth and elastic dough. (It took me about 10-15 minutes)
  12. Test by pulling the dough, stretchable to reach the stage of thin sheet and not easily breaks off, the dough is ready for its first rises.
  13. Once the dough double in size (Finger test – Poke finger into center of the dough and depression not rise up, dough fully proof ) punch it a few times to deflate it (using hand knuckles)
  14. Divide dough into 3 equal portions and shape them into balls. Covered and leave them to rest 15 minutes.
  15. Shape each into an oval shape. Place them into a greased loaf pan, covered with greased plastic wrap and leave dough to proof for 2nd time.
  16. Preheat oven 180°C and bake for 30 minutes. Instead of using egg wash, I spray the bread dough with water before I place the loaf pan into the center of the oven.
  17. To avoid over burnt crust, after 15-20 minutes of baking, I cover the loaf tin with lid, you can also lightly cover the bread and continue to bake until the required time.
