Inspired by the fluffy loaves at White Windmill, a bakery and cafe in Atlanta, this milk bread — a type of soft, bouncy white bread made with, yes, milk — is an homage to the Korean American community along the city’s Buford Highway and beyond. Milk bread exists across many cultures, but its distinguishing feature is the tangzhong — a cooked paste of flour and milk — that helps keep the bread from drying out. Maple syrup and a sturdier crumb distinguish this loaf from milk breads found at Asian bakeries. This one, which appears in “Korean American: Food That Tastes Like Home,” by Eric Kim (Clarkson Potter, 2022), has a deeply savory, pancake-sweet flavor and tastes fabulous plain, fresh out of the oven, or toasted, buttered and adorned with jam; honey and flaky sea salt are equally welcome as toppings.
