I rarely appear on my FB, so I don't know what is happening in there, unless my FB friends link that to me (Take this opportunity to say sorry to whom sent me the friend request, I didn't responded due to I don't update my FB). Usually I got to know the latest hot topic especially on new baking items from my Chinese blogger friends. Example like this popular Japanese condensed milk bread. Since I have all ingredients on hand, quickly make it for the next day breakfast. You should use Hokkaido condensed milk (if you have) to get the closer taste to original recipe which come from a Japanese website. But I just use sweetened creamer that we use in our daily Milo drink.
When I saw this recipe, immediately I was thinking to use this Japanese chiffon tube pan to make this bread, so I have a tall and slim bread..
Lets see how to make this bread..
The texture of this bread stayed soft even kept till the next day. For me, the taste is just like normal sweet bread, but I especially love the topping!
