myFresha-licious: Milky Soft Loaf

Milky Soft Loaf

 I have nothing to do so I decided to make a loaf bread.  I actually wanted to do the sponge and dough method but then again I got lazy so i settled with the straight dough method.

You can try this at home instead of buying loaf bread from the supermarket or from the bakeshop.  Knead it by hand if you don’t have any bread mixer or bread machine.  It’s easy to make.  Go easy on eating it though as it is high in calorie.
