The weather is bad these few days. There were thunder storms and heavy rain yesterday, not a good one though. And now there is lightning and I think there'll be a heavy pour later. Well, although the weather is not good but it doesn't really bother me. I still have the mood to bake. Warm bread fresh from my oven really warms my day..:)
Yes, this week's post will be bread. "No more cakes!!"..the eaters have been complaining about it..haha! Alright then, plain buttery buns it is!
How do they look? Beautiful huh?! These babies are so soft and fluffy!!
Plain Buttery Buns (makes 16 minis)
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp fine salt
4 tbsps castor sugar
500g bread flour
200g butter (diced)
~ Dissolve yeast in milk with salt and sugar. Use an egg whisk to beat until bubble forms.
~ Add in flour and eggs. Use a dough hook and knead for about 5 minutes at high speed.
~ When a dough forms, add in butter and continue to knead at high speed for another 8-10 minutes.
~ Try to stretch the dough (as shown above). When the dough is elastic, cover and let prove for 1.1/2 hours.
~ Preheat oven at 180'C.
~ Punch down, and shape into small balls.
~ Place on the prepared tray and brush with beaten eggs.
~ Bake at 180'C for 20 minutes.
These buns are so good when serve with jams or you can eat it plain with a cup of your favourite drink.
my daughter loves it, she gobbled up 2 once they are out from the oven.
