Tofu Bread




After receiving overwhelming response to the  Choco - Tofu Cake, I thought of using  tofu in bread recipe and found its works perfect and glad to share.

Before going in to the recipe, a brief introduction to tofu would help to know about this bean curd. Tofu is made the same way of dairy cheese. i.e.  made by curdling fresh soya milk, pressing it into a solid block and then cooling it.

Though the origin of tofu was China, its become a quite popular in Japan. Tofu is an excellent food from a nutritional and health perspective. A good source of protein and contains all essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins.

Ingredients :   2 cup of whole wheat flour        ;         1/2 cup of all purpose flour        ;         2 tbsp of sugar           ;           30 gms of butter       ;      150 gms of tofu silken       ;       1/2 cup of milk           ;            1 tsp of instant yeast       ;           1 tsp of salt



 In a bowl, add Luke warm milk, sugar, yeast and mix well. Then add salt, butter and combine well and set side.

Meanwhile, open the tofu pack and chop into small piece and crumble. Add the tofu crumbles into yeast mixture and combine well.

By sieving method, mix the whole wheat flour and all purpose flour and add little by little into yeast-tofu mixture  to form a smooth and elastic  dough that is tacky but not sticky. 


Shape the dough into a ball shape and coat with oil and cover the bowl with damp cloth. Allow the dough to rise until double in volume. may take up to 60 – 90 min.

Deflate the dough well (not kneading), shape into loaf shape into pre greased loaf tin and cover again with damp cloth and allow for second rise for 45 - 60 minutes.

Transfer the loaf tin into the 180°c pre-heated oven and bake the bread for about 40 min or till it done.  Allow it to cool.  The protein rich bread is ready for your breakfast / tea time snack.
