Condensed milk bread Fast2eat

Condensed milk bread Fast2eat

This fluffy condensed milk bread is so easy to make and holds up well when made ahead.

It is super soft, airy, moist, and with a hint of sweetness courtesy of the most important ingredient: sweetened condensed milk. Yes, you can use condensed milk in bread recipes.

It is a finely textured sandwich loaf, simple enough to make as an everyday recipe. This sweet and fluffy condensed milk bread will make you forget all about regular bread.

The way you eat condensed milk bread is up to you. Slice it into slightly sweet sandwich bread for grilled cheese or tear it off chunk by chunk. Either way, this bread is bound to become a staple.

When you use condensed milk in other recipes that do not require a full can, set the leftover condensed milk aside and use it to make a loaf of bread. If you do not have enough condensed milk to fill 1/2 cup, just add some water until you have the full amount.

Ingredients

  • 7/8 cups Water - 3/4cup + 2 tbsp (75°– 85°F / 24°– 30°C)
  • 1/2 cup Sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp Butter -

    room temperature or Margarine

  • 3 1/3 cups Bread flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Active Dry Yeast

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With a finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Select the “Sweet” bread setting. If available, choose crust colour (I usually set Medium, but if you prefer, set Light or Dark) and loaf size (1.5LB) and press the Start button.
  • It will mix and bake the bread. When the baking cycle is complete, press the stop button and unplug the breadmaker.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time use a Bread Slicer with an Electric Knife.

Notes

Condensed milk – the name of the bread reflects its main ingredient. I use ½ cup in the recipe for the needed sweetness. You can reduce it to ⅓ cup if you like a little less sweet. Or you can increase it to 2/3 if you prefer it sweeter. Just adjust the amount of the water to maintain the consistency of the dough.
Can I freeze sweetened condensed milk?
Once you make this recipe, you will quickly see why we are talking about this. Only 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk is needed for one recipe. That means you will have a lot of leftovers.
We do not have this problem here; all my family fights for a can of condensed milk; we love to eat it by the spoonful (lol).
Although if it is not your case, yes, you can freeze sweetened condensed milk for up to three months.
You can leave it in the refrigerator if you think you can use it within 3 weeks.
Or solve the left-over condensed milk problem: make two loaves and freeze one!
Variation
Add a half cup of raisins or dried cranberries to the bread dough for extra sweetness.

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the dough ball.
The dough is “just right” when it is a smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour in the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan, KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust dough.

Weather can affect your ingredients
If you live in a moist climate, chances are you’ll need at least the recommended amount of flour, maybe even 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup more. Bread dough should be sticky, but still manageable, especially after the first rise. While you’re kneading, the dough should come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl, leaving the bowl mostly clean. I usually aim to have the very bottom of the dough still attached to the bowl. Try not to add too much flour because your bread will be denser. When you pick the dough up, some will stick to your fingers. After the first rise, it will be easier to handle!

You may also make this bread without the aid of a bread machine, or make the dough in a bread machine, and bake it in the oven.
Simply make the dough using your usual method (by hand, electric mixer or bread machine); allow it to rise until puffy, then shape it into a log; and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21.5 x 11.5 cm) bread pan. Allow the loaf to rise, covered, until it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan. If you want, brush the risen loaf with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle it with seeds. Bake it in a preheated 350°F/175°C oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior temperature registers 190°F/88°C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool it on a wire rack.

How can you tell if the bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s very easy to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.
