Let’s make Fish finger & Egg Salad Sandwiches with Milk Bread.


This bread is very popular with the kids as it’s really soft and milky and very mildly sweet and rich.

Normally I don’t use cream much for cooking, so whenever I have cream left in the fridge, I make this bread.

My kids love fish finger & egg salad sandwiches with this bread.







Milk Bread  [4 little loaves]

400 g  of  High Grade/Strong Flour

30 g  of  Sugar

6 g  of  Salt

50 g  of  Cream

260 g  of  Milk

4 g  of  Instant Dry Yeast

25 g  of  Butter (Unsalted)


  1. Mix all the ingredients except the butter in a big bowl.
  2. Knead until it combines well (app. 5 min).
  3. Add butter to the dough and knead another 5-10min until the dough becomes silky and elastic.
  4. Cover the bowl with cling film or a wet tea towel and leave it in a warm place to let it rise until it doubles in volume. (app. 1 h to 1.5 h)
  5. Knead the dough briefly to deflate and divide it into 4 pieces.
  6. Let it rest covered for 15 min. (Bench time)
  7. Shape the dough, working on one piece at a time. (cover the others) Roll the dough into a rectangular shape, fold the dough horizontally in three. Then again in half. Seal it properly.
  8. Put all the shaped dough on a baking sheet and let it rise in a warm place for about 45 min. (Do not let it dry. Cover with a wet tea towel)
  9. Preheat the oven at 200 ℃ with the baking tray upside down. (easy to handle when it’s flat)
  10. Take the wet towel off 5 min before finishing the final rise, dust the top of each dough with flour and score five lines lengthways.
  11. Slide the dough into the oven and bake it at 190℃ for 15 – 17 min.

For the Sandwich

3 Eggs  (hard boiled and chopped finely)

1-2 tbsp  Mayonnaise

Salt and Lemon pepper to taste (Black pepper is fine as well)

1/2 tbsp  of  Milk  (if you have some)

some fish fingers (grilled)

Green Salad

Spreadable butter


  • Mix eggs, mayonnaise and milk in a small bowl and add salt and lemon pepper to taste.
  • Make sandwiches with green salad and the egg mixture and fish fingers! ( I put Japanese “Tonkatsu sauce” on the fish fingers, you can use tomato sauce if you wish.)


* The milk bread recipe is adapted from here. It’s got a lot of photos to illustrate the shaping method.
