Another Red-bean Buns...

Have been looking for more breads and buns recipe lately. Yup, bread and family love breads and so do buns! Especially my daughter, she can take bread for all her meals.

I've come across this recipe from a baker in Seremban, my hometown. He has been serving in a cake house and also sets up a college in Seremban too....Yeah is a HE! I was wondering why all bakers or cook are normally guys...hmm... Are they smarter???? Or are their work neater....whatever...heehee..;-P

Okay, i did alittle changes here...avoid his bread improver and minus the water used and also skip some steps, then it turned out just nice! See...i'm also smart! haha!...:) So here is it......



232g Bread flour

5g Instant yeast

165g Water


20g Egg

60g Sugar

1/4 tsp Salt

20g Cold Water

2.5g Instant yeast

100g Bread Flour


30g Unsalted butter


~ Mix (A) till even...about 5 minutes and place the dough in an air-tight container, proof for 90 minutes.

~ Add in (B) to (A), Mix well till form a dough, then knead for 10-15 minutes

~ Add in (C) and continue to knead to form a smooth elastic dough. (Need another 10 minutes)

~ Rest the dough for 15 minutes then divide into 60g each and wrap in the red-bean fillings, shape into balls and let rest for another 5-10 minutes.

~ Shape up the balls...

a) Flower buns: ~ Flatten the small balls, then roll up like a swiss roll, then cut into 4 parts without cutting off totally. Fold the 2 ends side-way, then pull the middle 2 apart across.

b) Cylinder shape: ~ Flatten into sheet, cut slightly in the middle (long stripes) then roll up like a swiss roll.

~ Placed the shaped buns on the greased tray. Prove until it double in size, about 20-25 minutes.

~ Egg wash before bake.

~ Bake at 180'C for 10-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Done!...hee hee!
