How to Make Delicious Flaxseed Milk Toast: A Step-by-Step Guide

Q: Can I use regular flour instead of high-gluten flour for this recipe? A: High-gluten flour is recommended for the best texture, but you can use regular flour with slightly different results in texture.
Q: What’s the role of flaxseed in this recipe? A: Flaxseed adds a nutty flavor and extra nutrients to the toast.
Q: Can I skip the egg in this recipe? A: The egg helps in binding the ingredients and adds richness, but you can try without it or use an egg substitute for a different texture.

Flaxseed Milk Toast


  • High-gluten flour (Bread flour) - 500g
  • Dry yeast - 5g
  • Salt - 8g
  • White sugar - 30g
  • Egg - 55g
  • Milk - 350g
  • Unsalted butter (softened) - 40g
  • Cooked flaxseed - 50g
  • Butter (for brushing) - 10g
  1. Prepare all the ingredients.
  2. Mix all ingredients except butter, salt, and flaxseed in a mixing bowl. Start at low speed, then switch to high speed until the dough becomes moist and can stretch to form a rough membrane.
  3. Add softened butter and salt to the dough.
  4. Mix first at low speed, then high until the dough is soft, moist, and non-sticky, and can be stretched to form a transparent, elastic thin film.
  5. Incorporate flaxseed into the dough, mixing at low speed for 1 minute.
  6. Round the dough and place it in a fermentation box. Let it ferment at 29°C for 55 minutes.
  7. Once the dough has doubled in size, poke a hole with a flour-dusted finger. It should not collapse or shrink significantly.
  8. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts, round each piece, and let them rest for 15 minutes.
  9. Roll each piece into a tongue shape, fold it three times, and let rest for another 15 minutes.
  10. Roll each piece into a 35cm long strip and roll them up.
  11. Place the rolls in a 450g low-sugar bread mold, and let them undergo a second fermentation at 35°C with 80% humidity. Use a fermentation box or the fermentation function of an oven.
  12. When the dough has risen to 80% of the mold's capacity, preheat the oven to 180/190°C (top/bottom heat).
  13. Bake the bread on the middle-lower rack of the preheated oven for 30 minutes. If using a regular bread mold, adjust the baking time to 35 minutes.
  14. After baking, shake the mold slightly to release the bread. Brush the surface with melted butter and let it cool until warm.
  15. Slice and serve, or enjoy by tearing it by hand.
