Plain Sweet Loaf - The bread that stay soft for days 甜面包

Lately, I'm experimenting the widely used method in my bread - Flour Gelatinised Method which adapted to Alex Goh, a famous Malaysian baker. 

The trick to convert normal bread recipe to flour gelatinised method is to take out 1/4 portion of the original bread flour recipe, then add 70% boiling water to this 1/4 portion.

This was the first loaf I made, small one.

Day 2, still very soft, as good as day 1.

Day 3, still soft. No need to steam/ toast/ warm the bread on day 3.
Love this!!

I had baked 2 loaves of bread using this method before I share this recipe. The first one was a small loaf and the second one was bigger. Both turned out very soft and super fragrant! and they stay as soft for at least 3 days. Even on day 3, I don't need to steam/ toast/ warm the bread. I can't tell if they'll  still stay soft on day 4 because my bread normally finished on day 3. Otherwise, it'll be kept in the fridge or turn them into Crouton!

Never ask a 6yo which one he likes, his answer is always the crunchy one!

Garlicious Buttery Crouton. One of my son's favourite snack!
Once he started one, he can't stop munching lol..
