Hong Kong Pineapple buns into Pineapple loaf bread
It’s has been a while since I last made bread of new recipe. I went through the fridge and noticed I still had some left over homemade yogurt made last week. With that, it crossed my mind that I could try out making Yogurt Bread. The following recipe was adopted from the Taiwan famous bakery Master Meng 100 bread recipes (孟老师的100道面包) which had yogurt as one of the main ingredients. As for the yogurt recipe, just click on the word and it will direct you to my old post on how to make homemade yogurt.
The direct translation of the Chinese name 优格菠萝土司 of this bread is Yogurt Pineapple loaf bread, originated from Hong Kong signature Pineapple buns (菠萝包) with a layer of sweet butter dough on top as bread topping. However there is no pineapple in the ingredients. Pineapple was used in the name because the layer of sweet butter dough cooked to golden brown resembled the pineapple skin.
The top crispy golden brown butter layer made the cutting of the bread a bit difficult but the sweetness of the buttery top balances the mild sour yogurt flavor of the bread.
