Add one teaspoon of instant yeast and 45 ml of sweetened condensed milk, if you are using unsweetened condensed milk you will add sugar. Lightly mix the ingredienst for a minute then add 60ml of room temparature water.
Continue mixing until the ingredients are well mixed, then add 2 cups of sifted all-purpose flour in batches. Knead the dough with a spatula or wooden spoon as you add the flour until all the flour is added in. Melt 25 grams of salted butter and add to the dough, if you use unsalted butter you will add half a teaspoon of salt into the mixture. Switch to kneading with your hands and knead the dough until it is soft and all the flour is absorbed in the dough.
The dough should be soft and a little bit sticky, if the dough is very sticky, add a teaspoon of dough and knead it for about 2 minutes. Place the dough in a bowl covered with plastic wrap and let it rest for 60 minutes or until it doubles in size. After an hour, the dough will have risen, place it on a lightly floured surface and degas the dough then roll ll it into a round ball. Divide the dough into 48 equal portions, each about 10-11 grams, and roll the dough into rounds.

Once done, brush the bread with egg wash. Score each ball with a razor blade and preheat oven to 170C/ 340F. Place a small strip of butter on the opening of the dough, butter sticks can be cut in advance and placed in the refrigerator then removed and placed at this moment.

When the time is up, remove them from the oven onto a wire rack to slightly cool down then remove the bread from the mould.
