What Is Condensed Milk Bread?

This bread hails from Japan. You may know it as “Japanese milk bread” or “Hokkaido milk bread,” named for the region’s famous milk. It’s the peak of indulgence, golden brown on the outside and soft and fluffy inside with a hint of sweetness courtesy of the most important ingredient: sweetened condensed milk. (Don’t have any on hand? Try out one of these condensed milk substitutes.)

What makes this bread so darn delicious is that each ingredient (flour, yeast, butter, sugar, milk and sweetened condensed milk) perfectly balances its counterparts to ensure a light, cloud-like bread.
