Sweet Buns

This recipe produced very soft buns and you can put any sweet filling and shape it as you like either plain round buns or creative looking as above. The first photo above was made using recipe from Myresipi by Diana and the the second photo was using Mat Gebu's recipe. We made this recently for charity sale.

Here is the one made recently using the second recipe:

Make 20 buns
400g High Protein Flour
100g Superfine Flour
100g Castor Sugar
5g Salt
20g Milk Powder
¼ tsp Bread Improver
11g Instant Yeast
1 Egg
250ml Water
40g Shortening

1. Place all ingredients in bread machine except shortening.
After the ingredients are mixed, add in shortening & let it process until the dough is ready.

2. If you don't have bread machine, place all ingredients (except shortening) in a bowl and mix well.
Add in shortening and knead until smooth & let it proof until double in volume (about 45 minutes).
Punch down the dough & knead for a while.

3. Divide dough into 20 small balls.
Put red bean filling & shape as you like.
Rest for 30-45 minutes.
Glaze with egg wash (1 egg + a bit of milk & beat slightly).
Bake at 180C for 20 minutes.
