For those using the same oven Rowenta OC7868 as me, I had baked those otah buns for 13 mins at 200˚C using traditional mode (top and bottom heat). Rotate the tray when it is left with 5 mins of baking time.

    Hi Doris,

    I am using Rowenta oven and the oven had bread dough rise temperature function. If you do not have the oven, it is still alright to proof the dough at room temperature.

    Hope my reply helps.

    Hi, can I replace milk powder with creamer or which milk powder is good for bread?

    Hi Wendy,

    I had bought the milk powder from Phoon Huat. I am not too sure if creamer can replace milk powder.
