巧克力卡士德面包 Chocolate Custard Bread

If you prefer a cottony soft bread texture, I strongly advise the use of Tangzhong starter dough method in your bread making. Although it may seem cumbersome having to prepare it a day before the actual baking, however, with the cottony outcome you will eventually believe the advantages of going through this extra step.

This is an interesting sweet bread recipe adapted from Alex Goh's 'Magic Bread'.
