Egg White Plain Loaf Bread 蛋白土司

The other day one reader left a comment in a very old post (way back 2009), said everyone should try this very soft bread. This is a bread recipe that i have totally forgotten. After i re-check back the recipe, and realized that this recipe is using egg white. Since that day i have leftover egg white, so i go ahead to modify this old recipe into plain loaf bread.

I was very pleased with the result, this bread stay soft till the next day. But i advise you not to slice them first before enjoy them, instead keep the whole bread in a air-tight container as to prevent it turned dry the next day. 

I always find bread recipe adding with whole egg, turned dry very fast on the next day ( of course the bread is soft on the same day baking, all bread baking are the same ) . But not to this recipe only adding egg white. The old recipe required to use milk powder, since i don't have this, so i replaced with fresh milk and water. Anyway, next time will try with milk powder version.

Hi Sonia, I've not bake bread before. May I know if I can use a normal cake loaf tin and cover with aluminum foil during baking?
