My 2nd attempt at making milk bread, which turned out better than my first - which I used to wrap around pre-cooked beef sausages for a lunch time snack.
I followed Christine's recipe
and while this attempt came out lighter than most of the other breads I've made, it's not as fluffy as the pictured desired result.
Then again, I was handmixing and have not been able to get the dough as smooth as I would like. 20 mins of mixing and my arm felt like it was going to fall off. Hats off to the people and professional bakers out there who still knead their dough by hand everyday!
Next time I make this, I definitely should have some kaya on hand - which I should get the recipe off my mother someday. Homemade kaya cooked over a charcoal stove was a childhood luxury I still fantasize about.
