Happy New Year! This post is an oldie at Instructables, but new here! Make some bread for the New Year?

I am so happy to share this recipe with you. Asian Sweet Bread is a staple in all Asian bakeries. The bread is soft and pillow-y and just melts in your mouth with a slight sweet flavor. The crust is perfectly brown and flaky. It’s gorgeous to look at…and delicious to eat. A perfect snack on any occasion and it can hold its own next to any store bought rolls or loaves.

This recipe is close to my heart as well. I have always gotten some sweet treat when going to Asian bakeries. I always came home with all kinds of bread…all of which derived from this simple recipe.

Bread and Butter?

5 Dec

Hello again! I don’t have much time to talk, golf is on ๐Ÿ™‚ But I will give you some updates on recent things I’ve made:

  • I tried the recipe on the back of King Arthur’s wheat flour and I have to say it’s pretty good. There are some surprising ingredients in the recipe, like orange juice. It came out great and we tried it right out of the oven.
  • I also tried to make french bread. I made a few changes to a recipe I found in my new book and yum! I sprayed a water and butter mixture to get the crust I wanted.
