Bread Baking Babes make Tangzhong Bread – Fluffy?


Tangzhong Bread?

No one can say the Babes aren’t creative and adventurous…..

But first: I’m back to stay now – at least for a bit.  During the last 3 weeks some family came to stay; then we all went to Marrakesh to meet-up with more family; then we came home and other family came back with us; then we went to Barcelona. Now they are all gone home and we are home and the dogs are home.

It seems very, very quiet here……

More views from Marrakesh next time but for now…. Back to the Babes:

Karen, of Karen’s Kitchen Stories, and our host kitchen for October, loves this bread and bakes it often…..

She says:

The bread uses a Tangzhong, a concoction of cooked flour and water or milk that is cooked to 65 degrees C or 149 degrees F.

You will never believe when you put this bread in the oven that it will grow so tall….. It’s kind of magical. This is the kind of bread that kids will love.

I have to say that looking at the photos reminds me of the WonderBread of my childhood – well, the slices, anyway….. It looks so soft.

But this is better.

You can make a traditional white bread version or whole wheat.

If you want to join the fun this month go to Karen’s Kitchen Stories and get the recipe as well as the scoop on being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.

  1. Ha. One of us isn’t quite as fluffy as the others and one of us doesn’t completely believe in magic yet either….

    (But seeing all the other BBBabes’ super fluffy breads might be swaying one of us into trying one more time. 🙂 )
