Tapioca Loaf Bread [Straight Dough Method]

After the successful attempts baking the soft loaf bread with glutinous rice flour and cornflour, I thought I should also try with tapioca flour.  Managed to get the basic recipe from home baking website and did some adjustments to the ingredients.  This recipe yields 2 loaves of  500gm bread.
The loaf bread texture is like the cornflour loaf.  It's soft and moist......and we tried toasting it on the 3rd day.   It is good with a mild tapioca smell.
45 gm tapioca flour
270 ml water
  • Combine the tapioca starch and the water (270 ml).  Stir until thick over low heat and cool completely. .
555 gm bread flour
2 tbsp skim milk powder
1 - 1 1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
3 tsp yeast
140 ml warm water
30 gm butter
  • Add all the ingredients [except butter] to the cooked tapioca dough.  Knead [from low speed to medium] until well combined and dough is soft for about 10 minutes then add in butter.  Continue kneading until soft, smooth and elastic.  Knead a further 5-10 minutes and dough does not stick to the fingers or window pane stage.
  • Shape into a ball and cover with a clean cloth to proof for 15 minutes or until double in size. Punch down dough.
  • Divide dough into 2 equal portions.  Then divide each dough into half. Shape the dough into a ball lightly.   Roll each dough out into a rectangle.  Fold the dough into thirds, then roll swiss roll style into a log.  Place in baking tin [Pullman's tin] and leave to proof in oven for an hour or until double in size or almost reaching the rim of the baking tin.  Remove from oven before preheating it.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for 25 minutes [uncovered] or 200 degrees C for 30 minutes [covered].  
  • Remove to cool on rack immediately after baking.
Next time, I try to bake it at 160 degrees C for 40 minutes.  Just to see if the texture is like the QQ Glutinous Loaf Bread.

Hello Kimmy
Thanks for the tapioca loaf bread recipe.
I'll create one for sure, my kids are gonna like it :)
If you don't mind, can you submit your tapioca loaf bread photo in ?
It's a food photography site full of all DIY food pictures from members around the world. Or perhaps you'd like to submit by yourself? Let me know when you did, so I can share it.

Hi Kimmy, I can see that you're quite a baking enthusiast. Thanks for dropping by my blog. The monkey bubble bread can be very sweet but mine wasn't that sweet as I didn't overcoat with too much cinnamon sugar. That's where the sweetness can be controlled.

Hi busygran, thanks for the info. I bake and cook cos' I'm curious to know whether the recipe is good and what's in the food. I believe that food can be prepared in many different ways to be enjoyed for healthy living too. Have to bake bread often cos' it's my hubby's breakfast food for decades.

Wow! Looks delicious! I found your blog while looking for a tapioca bread recipe. My kids have gluten sensitivities so i would probably attempt to sub a rice flour mixture for the bread flour and see how it goes. Thanks for the great recipe!

Hi daynab 123, thanks for dropping by my blog. Do try the loaf bread using glutinous rice flour, it's good too.
