indeed.. a truly kopitiam bread loaf..

recipe adapted with slight modifications from/食谱经调整取自于: my little favourite DIY

ingredients (i used a 450g, 20 x 10 x 10cm loaf pan)

500g bread flour
1 tbsp full cream milk powder
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp coconut sugar *brown sugar ok
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp instant dry yeast
320g water
40g butter

(我用了 450克、20 x 10 x 10厘米吐司烤盘)

面包粉 500克
全脂奶粉 1大匙
蜂蜜 2大匙
椰子花糖 2大匙*黄糖 OK
盐 1/2小匙
即溶干酵母 2小匙
水 320克
黄油 40克


mix all ingredients together and knead till you get a dough
after 20 mins of kneading, my dough was slightly sticky at the base
揉面 20分钟后,我的面团底部挺粘锅

i took it out of the mixer and hand kneaded for a few mins, then shape it into a ball

place it back into the mixer
continue kneading for about 10mins till you get a silky dough
total kneading time about 30 mins
再次放入厨师器、续揉 10分钟
全程搓揉时间约 30分钟

proof till double in size

divide dough into 4 portions and rest for 10 mins
发酵后分割成四等份、静置 10分钟

take a portion and roll it out

swiss roll top down and seal seams well
place dough with seams facing upwards

repeat the above process one more time
then place all shaped dough into greased pan
rise till dough is 1cm above height of pan
bake in second lowest rack, preheated oven of 200 degrees C for 45 mins
(tent loaf if it is browning too fast)
让面团发酵至高过烤盘高度的 1厘米
送至预热至 200摄氏度倒数第二层烤箱烤 45分钟

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– i had to squeeze my dough into my pan as it is slightly smaller as the desired 21 x 12 x 11cm pan
我需要将整形后的面团“塞” 烤盘(原食谱使用的烤盘为 21 x 12 x 11 厘米)

– i hesitated for a long time if there was a mistake in using a small loaf pan for such a big quantity of ingredients. i then decided to just stick with it ~it truly turned out to be a fantastic loaf ~ soft and somewhat chewy!. so if you are thinking of halving the recipe, please don’t
看了食谱数次有些小纠结~ 再想食谱是否出了问题 ~ 那么大的份量,用了那么小的烤盘。后来还是照着食谱做~ 不后悔~ 做出来的面包松软带些嚼性哦!好吃~亲们要想减量,千万别哈

    I always look forward to visit your blog, interesting n helpful.

    Btw, did it still stay soft the next day cause worry can’t finish😜

      Hi Sheila thanks for your compliments. Yes it stays very soft but do store your bread properly. That’s one of the main reasons bread goes dry and hard (if stored improperly ) 🙂

    I tried this recipe and used Breadmaker to bake. The bread turned out quite dense. Any idea what’s wrong?

      i’m not familiar with BM baking but it might be a hydration issue. i had readers making this with BMs and it turned out great, so you may want to adjust the level of hydration
