Bland taste, not buttery, need some breakfast spread.

Slightly chewy, soft n fluffy. Need to wait till tmr morning for the final verdict.

So what's the final verdict, Jennifer?

Not as soft as ytd freshly baked condition.

Elder boy commented the bread does not smell fragrance though better texture than Gardenia bread.

Ah boy did not knew it is home baked bread, just ate his breakfast as usual.

Unlikely to pass hubby's taste buds test, so I did not tell him I baked a bread ytd. He had the Sunshine raisin bread for breakfast.

Home made bread usually will not stay as soft as when it is fresh out of the oven. Try storing the bread in an air tight container, that will help keep it soft a bit longer.

I've tried straight dough, tang zhong, 17 hour starter dough, 24 hour starter dough, whatever. All will lose the initial softness within a day and I will need to toast them after the 2nd day. Those with 17 and 24 hour starter dough do have much nicer fragrance.

I think with home made bread, we need to tailor our expectations rather than try to achieve the kind of standard that we get from bread stores.

but I am 'nearby'.. :wink:

The other time when I made the cheese bun, the bread also hardened on the following day but still acceptable.

You going to try the Tangzhong method?
