Preparation

Make the roux by cooking the flour and water until you get a curd. Set aside to cool to room temperature. In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the warm milk and roux to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment. Then add the dry ingredients. Turn the mixer on medium-low and mix for 5-7 minutes until gluten develops and the dough feels elastic. Add the butter one tablespoon at a time and wait until it’s fully incorporate before adding more. Mix for another 5-7 minutes until the butter is completely incorporated and the dough is smooth and feels elastic.Shape the dough into a ball and transfer to a greased bowl. Cover and let rise for 60-90 minutes or until doubled in size.Gently deflate the dough and divide into 4 equal parts and shape into 4 balls.Cover and let rise for 15 minutes. Lightly grease a 25×10 cm loaf tin. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough into an oval. Fold the two short edges towards the center. You should end up with a rectangle.Starting from one short edge, roll the dough into a log and place into the tin seal side down. Repeat with the remaining dough.Cover and let rise for another 30-60 minutes or until the dough reaches the border.Preheat the oven to 175C | 350F degrees.Brush the bread with some soy milk. Bake for about 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 160C and bake for another 10-12 minutes or until the top is golden brown.Remove from oven and let cool into the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool down completely.
