Why Should I Try This Soft Bread Recipe?

How Does This Taiwanese Soft Bread Taste Like?
I was excited to try this recipe, as we always knew that the Taiwanese always make great baked goods!
To which, of course, I was curious about the texture of a loaf of bread made entirely with plain flour.
This loaf of bread is considered soft and fluffy for a bread loaf that uses only plain flour! Previously, I have tried using plain flour only in King Arthur Flour’s honey pain de mie recipe. The crumbs in that honey pain de mie loaf were not chewy like our normal bread – it just felt different. So I was naturally quite surprised by the texture of this soft loaf bread.
The original proof time is about 2+ hours. I was quite confused over the long proofing time, so I cut short the proofing time (the dough proofed into such a big ball of dough on my counter just halfway into 2 hours)!
You will find that this loaf bread has better “elasticity” and bite compared to KA pain de mie here. Even though it’s not as “stretchy” as the usual bread loaves (with bread flour), but it’s a good enough loaf if you run out of bread flour to make bread!
