This soft bread is best paired with jam or even soup and pasta. It’s super tasty yet so easy to make. Would you believe it only uses six ingredients? They’re easy to find, too – everything in your local grocery.

If you want to make one, here are the ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ½ tsp Yeast
  • 1 ½ tbsp Sugar
  • 1 ½ cup Bread flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)

First, get a small bowl and pour in the milk.

Add the yeast and mix the two ingredients properly. Then, add the sugar into the bowl and mix. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and leave for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, get another bowl.

Pour in the flour and salt, then mix. Create a small crater in between. Get the milk mixture and pour it into the crater. Mix until the dry and wet ingredients are blended properly.

Next, add the butter into the mix.

Again, mix all ingredients using a spatula for around three minutes until everything is blended thoroughly. Remember not to overmix the dough. When all ingredients are incorporated together, stop mixing so you won’t get a tough dough.

What happens when you overmix the dough?

Mixing your dough more than you should toughen the glutens in your flour. This also makes the dough denser, making it less likely to become light and airy – just like this Bubble Bread. Remember that seeing a few lumps is better than overmixing your dough and ending up with tough bread.

Alright. Back to our Bubble Bread!

Once the dough is thoroughly mixed, dip your finger and check if the dough is moist. This is not like your ordinary bread dough. The Bubble Bread’s dough has to be moist and sticky like this because this is what makes the bread so soft.

Cover the bowl with a cling wrap and let it sit for about an hour.

After an hour, you’ll see that the dough has doubled in size. The consistency of the dough would still be the same: moist and sticky.

Sprinkle a bit of flour on the dough and on a clean, flat surface.

You can also spread some flour on your hand so it won’t stick when you flatten the dough. Spread it into a square of the same thickness if possible. You can use a rolling pin or simply press it with your hands.

Cut the dough into small square pieces.

It’s okay if they don’t have the same size, but at least closely identical. Fold and roll the dough into a ball. Place it on a pan lined with a baking sheet.

Place them side by side but leaving a bit of space in between.

Put the pan in the oven to let the dough rise to double the size. Once it’s risen, take it out from the oven and brush some milk on the dough.

Bake them in an oven preheated to 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 18-20 minutes.

Take the pan out of the oven and brush some butter while it is still hot. Let it cool a bit until it is bearable enough to eat. Take one ‘bubble,’ and you can see how soft this bread is!
