Raisin Mexico Buns

Have been looking for some new bread recipes lately. I like all kinds of bread actually, but don't really know how to make most of it. As you can see my bread recipes are not that interesting...hee hee..;p

Finally got this recipe from my collection of books. Its similar to the coffee buns i made before, and it tastes as good as the coffee buns.

Here's the recipe...

Ingredients for Dough:
230g Bread flour
5g Instant yeast
170g Water

20g Egg
60g Sugar
1/4tsp Salt
25g Cold water
2.5g Instant yeast
100g Bread flour

30g Unsalted butter

Mexico Topping:
60g Salted butter
60g Icing sugar
60g Egg
60g Plain flour
** Almond Flakes for deco
~ Mix all ingredients well together.

Adequate raisins, salted butter.

~ Mix (A) till even and rest for 90 minutes
~ Add in (B) to (A) and mix well till form a smooth dough.
~ Add in (C) and continue kneading until elastic. Rest for 15 minutes.
~ Divide dough into 60g each and round up into balls, let rest for 5-10 minutes.
~ Wrap in raisins and butter, seal tightly and let prove double in size (about 20-30 minutes)
~ Pipe the mexico topping on the buns (as shown in the pix below) and sprinkle with almond flakes.
~ Bake at 190'C for 10-15 minutes.

It taste better when serve hot and the topping is much more crispy..:)
