Hokkaido Milk Loaf in the Bread Machine

I haven't cooked much since returning from Vegas. I made this bread the weekend before but haven't had a chance to blog about it. I used the same recipe for the taro bread I made a while back. I reduced it by 25% in order to make it "work" in my bread machine. I find that standard 2-loaf recipes need to be reduced 25% to 30% in order to fit into the 2-lb pan. I forgot to change the crust setting from medium to light so the crust is a little too dark for my taste.

This is the bread found in many Chinese bakeries. I saw it on the shelf at the Chinese bakery in Vegas this past weekend. The bread is cottony soft, fluffy and slightly rich.
