Soft Flaxseed Sandwich Bread

This bread is very fluffy, soft and moist. It stays fresh longer than most other ordinary homemade bread. This bread still stay soft on the 3rd day.

I increased the Yudane to 23% instead of 20% that I always used. The bread is even more moist and soft.

Soft Flaxseed Sandwich Bread Recipe - Yudane Method

Yields: 1 loaf


75g bread flour (Japanese high gluten flour)
75g boiling water

250g bread flour (Japanese high gluten flour)
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
27g brown sugar
3/4 tsp salt
13g butter
178g fresh milk or full cream milk
2 tbsp flaxseed, slightly blended
1 tbsp poppy seeds (optional)

Pullman pan (20 X 10 X 10 cm) or (8" X 4" X 4")


  1. Add bread flour in a bowl, pour the boiling water and mix well with spatula or spoon.
  2. Cling film and place in the fridge overnight or leave outside at room temperature at least 4 hours.
  3. Take out from the fridge 30 minutes before using to return to room temperature.
  1. Put all ingredients together with yudane dough (except butter) into the bowl of stand mixer. Using the dough hook, knead for 5 minutes (Chef Kenwood mixer, speed 2.5) until the dough comes together. Add in butter and continue kneading for another 8 - 10 minutes until the dough comes together, become elastic and tacky but not sticky.
  2. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 60 minutes or until double in size in a large greased bowl, covered with cling film or kitchen towel.
  3. Punch down the dough to release the air. Transfer the dough to a clean floured surface then divide into 2 equal portions.
  4. Form each portion to a ball. Flatten with rolling pin into a dish.
  5. Fold right to centre and fold left overlap it. Roll out with rolling pin into long rectangle shape. Roll up the dough like Swiss Roll until a small log is formed.
  6. Place all dough in the prepared loaf pan and cover with the lid. Let it rise for another 45minutes. Room temperature at my place is around 32C - 35C.
  7. 15 minutes before baking, preheat the oven to 190C (top and bottom heat) or 170C (fan-forced).
  8. Bake at preheated oven for 35 - 40 minutes. Open the lid and check. If the bread top still not golden brown, bake for another 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove bread from oven and let them cool on rack completely before slicing.
