SUPER SPONGY MILK BREAD
Super Spongy Milk Bread is a delightful and popular type of bread known for its soft, fluffy, and slightly sweet texture. This bread is made with milk, which contributes to its tenderness, and it often features a distinct crisscross pattern on the top.
550 gr of common wheat flour
120 grams of butter
150 grams of sugar
30 gr of icing or snow sugar
15 gr of dry yeast
1 tbsp salt
(1) In a pot we heat the milk and dilute the yeast, when you see that it is completely dissolved, turn it off and let it cool until it reaches room temperature.
(2) In a bowl, place the flour and salt, stir until combined. We open a space as if it were a volcano, add three eggs, then little by little add the milk with the yeast (remember that it must be at room temperature).
(3) With the help of a spatula, stir with surrounding movements, when you see that the mass is dense, use your hands to finish integrating until obtaining a homogeneous mass.
(4) Flour your countertop, and place the dough. Stretch it out and at this point you will add the butter and knead for 10 minutes. Don’t worry if, at first, the dough becomes sticky, when you finish kneading it, it will be manageable.
(5) Make your dough a ball, we keep it in a bowl, we cover it with a clean cloth and we will leave it for 2 hours to ferment.
(6) After this time, our dough will have grown. We take it and we will place it on our counter, we knead it for 3 minutes to undo the air.
(7) Later, we will assemble our milk buns. Divide the dough into equal portions. I recommend that you make each bun the size of a medium apple. Of this amount, approximately 10 servings will come out. You can make them round or oval, but small.
(8) We place our milk buns on a tray with waxed paper, and we will leave it for 2 hours for its second fermentation process.
(9) With 10 minutes to go until fermentation is complete, preheat the oven to 190°C
(10) Beat the leftover egg to brush each brioche. You varnish them all, then sprinkle the glass or snow sugar. This step will help them form that shiny, golden color.
(11) Put them in the oven for 15 minutes, until they are completely soft, fluffy and golden.
