I understand that you want your Spanish Bread to be is excellent the first time you make them, but most of the time, as first time Spanish Bread baker, the dough and bread becomes hard and there's a solution to that.
SO, HOW TO MAKE A NON DENSE SPANISH BREAD
As what I mentioned, making Spanish bread in general is not hard and one that really rises during fermentation is hard to come by for some amateur bakers like you and me; so I will share with you my tricks, to make a soft and fluffy Spanish Bread.
- Make sure your yeast is alive. test it by dissolving the yeast in warm water. If it bubbles after 5 minutes, then it is not expired.If not. time to discard it.
- Knead just enough. I usually knead my dough for about 7 minutes in stand mixer and 14 minutes by hand.
- Don't add too much flour. It is always advise that in order for the dough to not stick on the kneading surface, we have to sprinkle the surface with flour. Sometime though, we add too much. And that will change the ration of the dough and recipe altogether.
- Did you forget to add the butter? It happened to me. I forgot to add the butter. Fat activates the yeast and increase the gas formation, and this make the bread fluffy and soft.
- Did you let it rise in a warm place?

1 cup warm milk
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon active dry yeast
3 1/4 cups flour
3 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
PART 3 LIQUID INGREDIENTS:
1/3 cup unsalted butter
½ cup unsalted butter,softened at room temperature
½ cup brown sugar (100g)
1/3 cup condensed milk
¾ cup bread crumbs (90g)
¼ cup all purpose flour (33g)
1/3 heavy cream or whipping cream
1 CUP BREAD CRUMBS TO ROLL THE DOUGH
Turn on oven to its lowest setting and let it warm for 10 minutes. Turn off oven.
Grease a bowl and line baking pan with parchment paper.
MAKE THE SPANISH BREAD FILLING:
Put 1/2 cup butter in a medium sized bowl.
Add the brown sugar. Mix using a spatula or hand mixer. Mix until it until it changes to pale color.
Add the condensed milk,heavy whipping cream, and mix until incorporated.
Add the bread crumbs and flour. And mix until there are no lumps.
Refrigerate mixture for 30 minutes, so that it will be easy to work with when we fill the dough.
PREPARE THE YEAST MIXTURE:
Warm milk in the microwave. Make sure it just warm to the touch. Hot liquid kills yeast, and will make your bread not rise and dense.
Add in 1 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of active dry yeast.
Let rest until form a bubble. About 5 minutes.
PREPARING THE SPANISH BREAD DOUGH:
In a large bowl, add in the flour, sugar and salt. Make a hole in the middle and pour in the yeast mixture.
Mix and add the egg and butter. This will yield a very goo-ey dough, but keep on kneading it until dough do not stick on the side of the bowl.
When dough do not stick on the side of the bowl, form it into a bowl and put in a greased bowl and cover. Let rest in a warm place for an hour to double its size.
After 1 hour, and when the dough has double in size, remove the dough from the bowl and put in a flat surface. punch dough to remove air and flatten into a rectangle.
Divide dough into 16 pieces and form into a small ball. Flatten the dough using a rolling pin and add the filling on the edge of the dough and roll.
Seal the end and the side of the dough and arrange in a non greased pan.
Roll dough in bread crumbs and line them in a non greased pan. Do the same of the remaining dough.
Cover the dough and put in a warm place, covered for another 30 minutes.
Pre heat oven at 350 F.
When the dough is ready, bake at the pre heated oven for 2o - 25 minutes,or until the top changes its color to golden brown. OR, when it sounds hollow when you top it.
