Tuna Cheese Rolled Buns

It has been a long time since I made some bread or buns for my family. The whole house smells so good today with these tuna buns...:))
I've wanted to try this recipe long time ago but I was so lazy until today...;p This recipe was taken from my old collection, "DIY home bread" ~ step by step. Somehow I've change the method by rolling it instead. Why?....actually it was just for fun...hehe!

By using the muffin pan, it really looks alittle different from the normal buns, they actually looks like a muffin cake instead..^^
The recipe made 14 buns (the normal muffin size) so I've 2 extras that sat into the muffin cups!!

Here comes the recipe....

230g Bread flour
5g instant yeast
170g water

20g egg (slightly whisk the egg before weighing)
60g sugar
1/4 tsp salt
25g cold water
3g instant yeast
100g bread flour

30g butter

~ Mix all ingredient (A) together and let rest for 2 hours
~ Add in ingredients (B) into (A) and beat till smooth dough then add in (C) and knead into an elastic dough.
~ Rest dough for 15 minutes then divide into 2.
~ Rolled out the dough into square about 1cm thick, then spread fillings onto it.
~ Rolled up like a swissroll then cut into 7 equal portions.
~ Placed onto muffin pans with cutting side facing up.
~ Let prove for 20 minutes or doubled in size then brush with egg wash and sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese if prefered.
~ Bake in preheated oven at 190'C for 12-15 minutes.

300g tuna in mayo
2 medium onion (chopped)
30-40g shredded cheddar cheese
alittle pepper

~ Saute onions with some olive oil till fragnant.
~ Then add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

After 20 minutes, the buns do doubled in sizes. They are nice to look at and nice to touch too...haha! I like to touch and press those dough before baking, just love the texture...;p

These are the 2 with muffin paper cups. They are equally nice and they need the same baking time as those in pans.

Oh...so fluffy and delicious!! Sharing some with my friends just now and hope they like it. My husband just tried one and said its nice....YEAH!!! I've done another good recipe to share..:)
