Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– feel free to use a bigger pan, but do adjust baking time accordingly

    Hi Victoria. Awesome texture. Mighty tall and fluffy. Question. What is the difference between hainanese kaya and regular caramel kaya. Can I use regular kaya instead. Thanks again.

    • Victoria Bakes (June 18, 2015)

    Hi Victoria, like to consult you on bread making. I have manage to make soft bread but never fluffy. Is it possible to make soft and fluffy bread like commerical bread without using bread improver?

    • Victoria Bakes (June 19, 2015)

      Hi Wendy, if you specifically mean \”fluffy\” (in my definition, meaning well aerated) i would (in my 5 cents worth) say use a highly hydrated recipe (dough maybe difficult to handle) and increase proofing time during last rise (have to watch it doesnt overproof resulting in deflation). I nvr use bread improver and do get soft and fluffy bread at home. Hope this helps

      • Wendy (June 19, 2015)

        Thanks for the quick respond, Victoria. Can you recommend a recipe from your collection for me to try. One that is highly hydrated. Like to give it a try again.

        • Victoria Bakes (June 19, 2015)

          Hi Wendy, i highly recommend this ~

          it\’s a tough dough to handle and i have heard people just dumping the entire dough (couldn\’t knead it) to rise. that is not the ideal way. do click on the link of the recipe contributor. you will be able to see the dough at different stage. that way you can gauge if you are on the right track. of course, i have seen a lot of successes on Facebook as well.

          good luck
