Milk Bread (Eggless) / Honey White Bread / Super Soft Milk & Honey White Bread / Sweet Bread


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.



Preparation Time : 15 mins
Resting Time : 3 hours
Baking Time : 30 to 35 mins
Makes One 20 cm loaf

Ingredients:


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 3 cup + extra 
Dry Yeast - 1 tsp 
Honey - 1/2 cup or adjust to your taste 
Salt - 1/2 tsp 
Soft Unsalted Butter - 4 tblspn ( Room Temperature) + More
Luke Warm Milk - 1 1/4 cup + extra as needed

Method:


Take warm milk in a bowl and pour in the honey. Sprinkle over the yeast and let it sit for 5 mins or so till it foam up.

Now take flour in a large mixing bowl. Add in salt and mix well.

Now pour in the yeasty milk and mix well to form a dough.

Add in the soft butter and knead again for 5 to 10 mins so it forms into a smooth dough.

Butter a large bowl and place the dough in it. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it double in size. It will take around a hour or even more depending on temp of you place.

Once it is doubled in size. Punch back the air and knead the dough again for a couple of mins and shape into loaf bread shape.

Butter a loaf pan and place the bread dough inside this and let it rise again for a hour.

Preheat the oven to 190 degree C / 380 Degree F.
Once the bread has risen. Brush the top with milk and bake in  a preheated oven for 30 to 35 mins.

Once it is baked. Allow it to cool down for 15 mins in the tin and remove to a cooling rack.

Let it cool before slicing. Slice this and serve with jam or as it is.

  7. My Milk Honey Bread is on the oven now... Waiting to post it soon... I have tried most of your recipes and never thought of taking a picture of them. Recently I saw your FB post on your viewer's 'tried recipe pictures' and I was motivated to post mine too. Last week I tried White bread and turned out awesome. As a result of that, I was gifted a Severin Bread Maker by my beloved family friend. Today I will post the picture of Honey Bread soon.

  17. Looks super cool bread.
    Help me understanding one thing, u mentioned both coils should be heated right, but mine (MR OTG) when i switch on Toast mode only both coils heat up and not in "Bake" mode.
    Then should i bake bread in toast mode then?

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Unknownif u have bake mode, then bake it in that mode.

  21. Hai Aarthi,loved ur presentation,ur recipes r simpl n yumm.....can I make dis bread vth wheat,if yes how long I have to keep d dough 4 fermentation??

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Anonymousif u make with wheat then the bread will be little hard and dense. Time depends on the rising of the bread. so leave it till it is doubled in size

  30. Thank u Aarthi for the receipe. Followed ur instructions . Everything went oo well but when i placed the dough in the pan to rise it did not rise in height . It spread vertically in the pan . I have an lg convection cooking microwave so kept it for 35 minutes at 160 degrees. The inside portion remained uncooked. And after keeping for ten more minutes the portions remained uncooked pl help. Thank u

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Praveena Sowmyaragavanit is because u didn't knead the dough well and your dough is too soft. Add more flour and knead it till it is soft and smooth. then roll it and rise it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi arthi..I tried this today.everything went so well.but when I baked it it became hard and sticky inside. I baked for 35 mins.was it because I overbaked it?

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Mili Ashokif over baked it may get hard..did u knead well to a soft dough

  35. Hi Aarthi,

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I baked this bread today.

    The only problem is that the crust has cracked on top. But the taste is good.

    And I have a question:
    Do you slice the bread while it is still warm?

    Thanks
    Shubha

  38. Can you tell how to identify the bread is done.........

    I bake in an oven with convection mode......I have tried your best vanilla cake recipe....in that you mentioned to divide the batter between the THREE cake pans and bake for 25 to 30 mins, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. For me the batter in ONE pan was BAKED within 10 minutes.....

    So I dont know the exact time to bake bread. Plz reply

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Anonymousit depends on the thickness of the cake batter and cake pan. Each oven will vary so you have to keep an eye on it, after halfway through the cooking process
