You all know my love for baking bread at home from my array of bread post in my blog. So far i have tried 100% Whole Wheat Bread, White Bread, Multi Grain Bread. And i went a little fancy and made a Homemade Panettone & Focaccia Bread. So far everything turned out so beautiful and they all been my favorite ones.
But my hunger quest for bread making didn't end there, i couldn't stop baking my own bread which led me to bake my very own Sweet Milk Bread. OMG is the only thing i could say to you. Because this bread turned out to be so soft and fluffy. Soft in the sense, it was like cloud. Very spongy.
The honey which we added made this bread sweet and it tasted great as it is sliced fresh from the loaf served warm. But i toasted it with some butter and had the next day and it tasted divine. I strongly suggest you to try this and let me know how it turned out for you.
I have a array of bread and bread based recipes in my blog, you can check all of them in my Recipe Index.
