I first saw this cream cheese bread at Peony's blog. And according to her, this bread is really soft and fluffy just like the Hokkaido Milk Loaf. And since I have all the ingredients at home, I told her I'm going to give this a try soon. Why mine turned out looking like that? Oh well, I decided to experiment with the ExpressBake function on my bread machine. It means the bread will be ready in 58 minutes as compared to the usual 3-3.5 hours.
Original recipe is taken from here. I replaced the bread flour with whole wheat flour. I got to say this bread is really soft but mine turned out not as fluffy, perhaps because I used the ExpressBake function? That taught me, one can't really rush the process of bread making. As with ExpressBake, it really didn't provide enough time to prove the bread, and thus my bread looking like the above. Nevertheless, I am going to make more bread using this recipe, but with the normal bread and dough functions. Just to see the difference (in texture and look). :o)
