Milk Bread and the Fluffiness of Your Dreams

You may not think of Japan as a "bread country" but actually, there are a couple of original types of bread that originate from the land of the rising sun. One of them is this super fluffy and sweet milk bread that was first made in Hokkaido, Japan's own dairy land. Here's an authentic Japanese recipe for making this super elastic and chewy type of bread!

Easy and Quick Recipe for Extra Fluffy Milk Bread

This recipe is the best because it's quick and makes buns with the chewy texture we all love in a sweet milk bread. It's based on the authentic Japanese home backing method. All you need is a bowl, a spatula, plastic wrap and a baking tray.


- Bread flour 250g
- Sugar 40g
- Condensed milk 20g
- Butter 30g
- Milk 160g
- Salt 3g
- Dry yeast 4g
Step 1) Put in a bowl the milk, sugar, condensed milk, butter, and microwave at 500w for 50 seconds. The mixture should be about at your body's temperature. Reheat a little if needed.

Step 2) Add the salt and the yeast to the preparation and mix with a spatula until the sharp smell of the yeast has dissipated.

Step 3) Add the flour to the mixture and roughly mix with the spatula until you can form a ball of dough. Cover with a wrap and heat in the microwave at 200w for 30 seconds, then let the bread dough rise for about 10 minutes.

Step 4) Make 16 balls of dough place a wrap over them and microwave them again at 200w for 30 seconds. To make them rise quickly, set your oven's temperature to 200 degrees Celcius and place the buns on top of it (not inside) with a damp towel over them to prevent them from drying. You just have to wait 10 minutes and the yeast will have worked its magic. You can brush them with milk or melted butter and sprinkle some flour on top for decoration.
Step 5) Turn down your oven to 180 Celcius and cook them for about 15 minutes and you're done!
Step 6) This one is optional. You can cut your buns in half and add some whipped cream as a filling!
If you're in Japan, you shouldn't have any trouble finding them in convenience stores or supermarkets sold at a relatively cheap price. Your home-made version will be much better, of course!
