Verdict from the Royal Prince Charming: Soft and nice!

My Prince Charming was amazed by the crispy skin of the cake and the fluffiness. He was just in time when I got this cake freshly out from the oven. He couldn't even wait and wanted to eat that right away. I stopped him of course, because my mum always remind me never to eat anything that is just cooked pipping hot because it is very heaty for the body. My Prince Charming has this bad habits of being impatient when it comes to food. :P

This recipe is adopted from Angie of My Kitchen, My Laboratory.

Strange enough, no cinnamons or nutmeg were added to this bread. However, my Royal Prince Charming commented that he could taste a tint of either one of the spice in the bread >.<

I was inspired by Lee Lee's Mocking sting bees Bread, thus decided to try a hand on it.
Anyway, I did some modifications to the shape of the bread and omitted the milk powder. I prefer something petite and cute :)

*Updates: I gobbled these breads this morning and realised that the skin of the bread can get hard if it's left overnight but amazing part is, its more to the crispy kind of hardness and the inside of the bread is still soft and chewy. I will definitely try this again :D*
