Cream Cheese Bread

A Passion for Bread........Bread is a rich and fascinating source of exciting recipes and expert information.  Bread has enduring culinary and cultural significance all around the world.  The making of bread requires little more than a pair of your hands, an oven, patience and of course a love or passionJ.  Here I would like to share my first experience on making bread, the Cream Cheese Bread.  If you want me to tell you my feeling on bread making – Bread is Alive!  Happy Trying!

Cream Cheese Bread

  • 1 kg bread flour
  • 15g instant dried yeast
  • 55g milk powder
  • 60g sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 600g water
  • 20g salt
  • 1 egg – beaten

  • Hand-mix  bread flour, instant dried yeast, milk powder, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. 
  • Add in cream cheese and water and knead to form a dough.
  • Add in butter, continue to knead to form a smooth and elastic dough.
  • Shape the dough as for a long loaf and place into a greased loaf tin.
  • Cover dough with clear film or a towel.  Let it prove for 50 – 60 minutes, or till it doubles its size.
  • Brush with beaten egg and bake in an oven pre-heated to 180◦C for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cream cheese adds a creamy and cheesy aroma to white bread.  It is ideal for sandwiching smoked salmon and other smoked meats.

  1. Thanks for following me on twitter. This looks delicious! I'm intrigued by the use of cream cheese in bread. What did it taste like?

  2. You are most welcome. I am very new in blogging. Hope to hear more from you.

    You wont believe it, its taste wonderful with the combination of cream cheese and milk powder. You will have that kind of "spring" texture that rich with cream cheese. Try it, you wont regret!
