Windsor Bread (温莎面包)

I haven’t tried new bread recipes in a while, mainly because I’ve been sticking to a couple of recipes that I liked so much that I’ve memorized. This one caught my eye, cause it’s fast and results all looked fabulous. The recipe is viral on Taiwanese blogs and FB groups.

I easily achieved this soft, fluffy bread in under 2 hours. It’s clean tasting and didn’t require fancy ingredients.

Ingredients (adapted from here , makes 9 buns)

  • 225g bread flour
  • 25g cake flour
  • 8g milk powder (optional)
  • 1 egg yolk about 20g
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 140g – 150g water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp yeast
  • 25g butter.
  • Method
  • 1. Add all ingredients except yeast and butter and knead in stand mixer with dough hook, for a few minutes till the dough comes together.
  • 2. Add in yeast and knead for another 5 min.
  • 3. Add in butter and knead till an elastic dough, about 10-15 min.
  • 4. Rest the dough for 10 min. Divide into 9 pieces and roll them round, then rest another 10 min.
  • 5. Flour surfaces lightly. Roll out 1 dough, about 12 cm by 8 cm, not too thin. Pat out air bubbles at the edges.
  • 6. Swiss roll up gently and place on baking tray. Don’t roll too tight. Repeat for all other doughs.
  • 7. Proof in a closed oven with a cup for hot water for 40 min.
  • 8. Lightly sprinkle some flour or powder sugar on top or you can egg wash them.
  • 9. Bake at 180 deg for 15 min till golden.

    1. Hi, thanks for another great bread recipe 🙂 just to confirm with you – do we need to knead the dough to window pane and rest to raise to double before dividing into 9 small balls? Thanks
      Btw: may I know what mixer are you using ?

        Good if you can get window pane, but smooth and elastic is good enough for buns. Follow the times in the recipe, no need to double. I use kenwood.


        1. Thank very much 🙂 will try later

      In your pics,what did you sprinkle on the buns? Flour or powdered sugar? Is powdered sugar the same as icing sugar? Thanks
