Rei, no leh, it's not like those fried doughnut kind of oily. More like a normal soft and fluffy bread. To cut down fats, you replace butter with magarine loh. So far my friends who've tried all like the bread. Hopefully your mum like it too.

Wai Fun, baked the bread with wholemeal this morning. I replaced butter with 15g ofcorn oil, no problem with rising. I calculated the fat content; together with cream cheese, not exceeding 15%.



Smells very nice during baking but dunno if it's due to my tired palate or what (I didn't sleep last night); I can't really taste the cheese. Razz Or maybe it's not as cheesy as I would like it to be. Ahaha.. but it's fluffy lah.. Btw, I tried out the Sponge dough method with this recipe.

sweet-tooth, it's very good. You got to try it.

I just use hand kneading to make this bread. Takes me about 30 minutes to knead into a smooth and elastic dough. The beginning is rather sticky, but it will be fine eventually.

Hi KWF,
I made this bread, turned out very soft and fluffy! Thanks for the recipe. I used a cake baking tin instead of a bread baking tin, so the sides didn't brown well. However, the top did brown well. Tks again.

Photo is here, it's a little too big I think to insert here, so I just attach the url.

Hi WF,

I'd like to try this bread in my bread machine. Had a few attempts with other bread machine recipes but the bread turned out hard or coarse. May I know how much 3g of yeast in teaspoon? Thanks.

Hi MH, not WF, but I tried out the recipe. Didn't weigh the yeast but I used 1-1/4 tsp of yeast. Turned out well. Maybe you'd like to try? HTH

rei is right, MH. I just did another bread and remember to measure for you. 3g is about 1 & 1/4 tsp.

Hi WF & Rei,

MH, if you can't get bread flour over there, you can use plain flour, but reduce the water a little, maybe 10ml.

I feel like giving this a try when so many of you have complimented it. But I have a question: Is it necessary to add the powdered milk? I don't have any at home and don't really want to buy a big tin of it as no one at home takes powdered milk. Can I use milk instead?

Thanks.

singapore gal, if you don't have milk powder, you can replace it with milk, no problem. For me, I would use half milk and half water.

KWF, based on half milk and half water formula, I should use 85ml water and 85ml milk, right? Cheeky grin
