Soft Bread in a cup

Brought Baby FAN to a shopping trip one day and a lady offered her a piece of home-made milk bread as a sample for the Bread Machine that she was selling and Baby FAN loves it.  So I thought, maybe I can try making a milk bread myself. Of course, I don't have a Bread Machine, the one that the lady was selling cost $300 plus, so I ended up kneading the bread with my bare hands for 15 minutes.  It was a really good work out for me...hi hi...

Well, here's how the bread turns out, I added some dry cranberries on top to make it looks more appealing.  The bread was really soft and just the right sweetness.  Going to served this for my breakfast tomorrow and see if the kids like it.

Hi Jas

Do give it a try. It's actually quite tasty although, on the second day, I thought it wasn't as soft as the day when it's baked.
