Homemade Milk Bread Recipe

1 tsp active dry yeast
½ cup sugar
1 ½ cup All-purpose flour + ¼ cup more for kneading
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
¼ cup butter, melted

Homemade Milk Bread Recipe


    1. Combine warm milk, yeast, and sugar in a measuring cup or a small bowl and give a quick stir. Set aside to let the yeast bloom and foamy.

    2. Meanwhile, beat the egg in a bowl and save ½ for later. Mix all-purpose flour, sugar, ½ of the egg, and melted butter together in a large bowl. Add in foamy yeast and start mixing with a silicone spatula or with a plastic scraper until everything comes together. At this time the dough will be very sticky. Transfer dough to a cleaned work space with more flour while kneading. Add a little oil to your hands to avoid dough sticking to your hands. Add flour pinch by pinch and keep working the dough until it’s not sticky anymore, about 8-10 minutes. The dough should be really elastic and smooth. Lightly grease bowl with oil, shape the dough to a ball and transfer the dough back to the bowl, covered with plastic wrap.

    3. Set the oven to 105°F using Fermentation Mode and put dough in the oven for 1 hour or until double in size.

    4. When the dough doubled in size, take the dough out and punch down lightly then divide into 3 equal sizes. Take 1 portion and roll out into an oval, bring two sides of the oval towards the middle then roll it up into a log. Do the same with the other portions.

    5. Place 3 rolls in a loaf pan lined with parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap. Set the oven to 105°F using Fermentation Mode, place the dough in the oven to let it proof again for 40 minutes or until double in size.

    6. After the dough has doubled in size, take plastic wrap off. Beat together the remaining ½ egg and 1 tbsp milk. Brush egg mixture to the top of the dough for a shiny top. Set the oven to 350°F using Bake Mode and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. If the tops start to brown too much, cover with a piece of aluminum foil. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
