Sweet Milk White Bread made in a Bread Machine

Sweet Milk White Bread

7/8 cup water
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
3 cups(+) bread flour
2 teaspoons instant yeast

First: Add ingredients to bread pan in order listed. Start with 3 cups flour.

Second: Select Dough Cycle and start. Raise lid and check dough after about 5-10 minutes. Add flour one tablespoon at a time, if necessary, until dough reaches correct consistency. It should come together in a ball that sticks to side of pan, then pulls away. If dough thumps against the side of pan, add warm water 1 tablespoon at a time. If dough is thin enough to level out, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time till dough starts to form a slightly sticky ball.

Third: Remove dough from pan at the end of the dough cycle and place on lightly floured board. Roll into rectangle. Roll up and tuck ends to fit into greased 4 x 8 inch loaf pan. Let rise till dough is 1 inch above top edge of pan in the middle.
Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes. Interior should reach 190 degrees. (My favorite digital thermometer for checking bread.) Place a foil tent over bread half-way through baking to protect from over-browning. Allow to cool 15 minutes before turning out to cool completely. Best if you wait at least two hours before slicing so loaf will hold its shape without squishing with the pressure of a knife.

I only eat wheat bread. Do you have a recipe for that?

I wonder how this would be if I used for cinnamon rolls… any ideas?

Connie, The sweet milk white bread has a rather compact, tight texture so it makes great sandwich bread but probably not what most people would want in a sweet roll. If you try it, let me know how it goes. Thanks for writing.

This is the best bread ever! I have recently decided to become a baker and this was like the third bread recipe I tried. However I don’t have a bread maker so did it by hand and it still came out SO good! My husband said I don’t need to bake any other kind of bread ever because it’s all he wants lol..
Thanks so much!

Thanks again Paula! This one is a winner too! I tried this sweet milk bread recipe and it turned out perfectly. I followed it to a T and wow. I can’t believe how easy you’ve made this… Along with the recipe for the buns, people are going to think I’m a wizard in the kitchen. I’ve made 5 batches of buns in the last 2 days and I’m just about to start another sweet milk loaf. I can’t wait to try some more of your recipes! Thanks again 🙂

This is my daughter’s favorite. I make it for her for celebrations and for consolations. It smells great and tastes delicious.
