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
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.
