Add ingredients to the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. With my bread machine: I normally put the water-roux with the wet ingredients, then flour, and yeast last. I also warm up the milk/water required. Program for the Dough cycle. Press start. At this moment, I usually warm the oven to 28 °C (82.4°F) with a bowl of steaming water. Then turn off the oven.
When the machine beeps at the end of the cycle, press Stop and unplug the machine. Turn the dough into a greased container. Roll the dough to ensure the entire dough is greased. Cover the dough with a film of glad wrap, then a piece of damped cloth. Let the dough rise for the first time with temperature at 28°C (82.4°F) and humidity at 75% for about 40 minutes, or until it doubled in size.
Turn the dough onto a floured working surface. Punch/press the dough to release the air bubbles. Divide dough into 10 equal portions. Shape the divided dough and let them sit for about 15 minutes.
Let the shaped dough rise for the second time with temperature at 38°C (100°F), humidity at 85% for about 45 minutes, or until it doubled in size again. (To let the dough rise twice and double in size at both times is very important to obtain the fluffy and tender texture.)
Fifteen minutes before baking, pre-heat oven to 180°C (350°F). Glaze top of bread dough and bake for about 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Turn out bread and let cool on rack.
* Add water to the remaining mixed egg, blend well. Save to glaze top of dough right before baking.
* Custard powder gives color to the bread. Skip this ingredient if prefer white bread.
* Always use bread machine yeast.
