Asian Water Roux White Bread

Secret to homemade bread that will stay soft for days! If you enjoy the silky, cotton-soft but expensive loaves from Chinese bakeries, then you will love these! My kids can’t rave enough about them. It might be more work than the usual white bread, but trust me, this is so worth it! Water roux works best refrigerated overnight; however, if you don’t want to wait, make sure it’s room temperature when you add it to the dough! The dough is quite moist to work with. It is easier to do the kneading in a mixer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups mango – peeled, seeded, and cubed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Beat eggs, cream, and butter until smooth in another large bowl. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until batter is moistened. Fold mango into batter until just combined. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
