I might be just a few years late for the Hokkaido bread craziness that got into the food blogging community. However, better late than never.
Well, I had a chance to taste many Asian pastries and bread. We have a few great markets with bakeries that carry many baked and fried goodies.
I consider that a plus for me. If you never had Asian sweets, pastries or bread you are missing a lot.
Oh, I cannot even tell you how delicious Japanese curry bread (kare pan) or doughnut. My favorite, Anpan, sweet bread roll filled with sweet red bean paste, which I ate two weeks ago.
It was ever so soft, fresh and in combination with my hot french vanilla latte. It was just perfect on a chilly afternoon.
One of those bread that I went head over heels in this soft, fluffy like a pillow Japanese milk bread that literally melts in your mouth.
What is Hokkaido?
Hokkaido (formerly known as Ezo, Yezo, Yeso) is the second largest island out of four in Japan.
Since this bread is called Hokkaido bread toast I am assuming its origin is from that area
Some believe this bread is originated in Tokyo, but milk as a main part of the bread is from Hokkaido. That is why it is called Hokkaido Milk Bread. Interesting fact, right?
So I modified it, change some things, used less butter but you are more than welcome to check this link above and see how she did it.
Bread came out so delicious, and simply amazing, my friends. I made this milk bread 4 times this week
My dear niece loved the bread so I send her some, and you wouldn’t believe but my little baby boy ate one loaf in a day. Needless to say, my family really love and enjoy this bread, and we hope you will too.
