Hozana has a gift, she bakes bread like nobody's bussiness! If you had the chance to try one slice, you know what I'm talking about: The bread she bakes are always light, soft, delicious! And she was very kind to give us her recipe of homemade milk bread that is fabulous! You can make one loaf with guava paste, the other with cheese, chocolate, butter and cinnamon, raisins or with no filling to appreciate just the taste of the bread.

Ps. If you have no success in making bread from scratch, do not give up! Hozana when firts started, just made breads hard as rocks.

20oz milk
3.4oz oil
2 eggs
1oz wet yeast
1 level tbsp salt
7oz sugar
approximately 35oz all-purpose flour

10oz guava paste

1. Mix the milk, oil, eggs, yeast, salt and sugar in a big bowl and add the flour little by little until you get a stick dough.
2. Transfer the dough to a well floured surface and knead the dough until smooth but still sticking a little to the hands. If you put too much flour the bread will be hard and heavy.
3. Shape dough into a ball, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for 90 minutes in a warm place (80°F).
4. Lightly knead the dough in a surface with a little flour. Divide in two or three parts.
5. Roll each part with a rolling pin, spread the diced guava paste and firmily shape dough into rolls so it doesn't open. Arrange the loaves in a big greased pan, so there's enough space to expand and place them in the oven (turned off) or cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for two hours.
6. Preheat oven to 355°F and bake the loaves for 40-60 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool over a wire rack.

Tips: Although Hozana doesn't use this method, bakers recommend you to dissolve the wet yeast in sugar.
Make sure the wet yeast is fresh.

Makes 2 to 3 big loaves
