Soft Delicious Buns & Another Award

Another yummy bread - recipe from MamaFaMi's blog, as recommended for herself, therefore I gave a try a few days ago
Wow! These buns were so soft and delicious, much better than the soft butter buns I made the other day!

I guess I have overbaked these buns a little, but it did nothing to the goodness of the buns
They were filled with chocolate, chocolate+cheese and pineapple jam

But look at the texture inside! Soft and fluffy - so yummy!

Besides those 2 loafs, I made these 8 little buns filled with banana+chocolate and also banana+cheese
DH managed to find king banana at one of nearby fruit stall (we Indonesians call it 'pisang raja') - this type of banana is so perfect to use as bread filling - just steam for awhile, peel the skin and half them before putting in the dough - so sweet and juicy
Not easy to find in Singapore though...
Totally forgotten to take picture of it hehe...

After my big bite *grin*

No chance to take picture of the one with banana+cheese filling - gone in seconds! :P

What you need:
( I only made half of the recipe below)

200ml water
2 eggs
90g castor sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp dough softener
500g bread flour
4 tbsps milk powder
1 tbsp bread improver
11g instant dried yeast
3 tbsps margarine

Filling & topping:
some dark chocolate
some grated cheese
some chocolate rice
steamed pisang raja - halved
some pineapple jam

Using bread maker:
Pour water, egg, sugar, salt and dough softener into the bread maker pan. Top it with flour, milk powder, bread improver and yeast
Set the breadmaker to Dough function
Once the dough is just combined, add in margarine. Leave the Breadmaker to continue doing it's job. This process will take about 1 1/2 hour including prooving
Measure dough to 25g each. Form each dough into a ball and rest for 15 minutes
Flatten the dough and place the filling in the middle and wrap the filling with the dough. Arrange on a baking tray as preferred
Cover the buns and let it rise until double in size (mine is around 1hour)
Brush the buns with some egg wash (1 beaten egg + 1tbsp fresh milk) and sprinkle with some topping you like (mine is grated cheese and chocolate rice)
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for approx 20 minutes or until golden brown
Once out of the oven, brush with a bit of margarine. Place on a wire rack to cool. Keep in an airtight container

Thanks MamaFaMi for recommending this recipe to me - it's definitely a keeper! :)

Since 7 is far from enough, I think now is the right timing for another 7, hehe....

*used to dislike babies and kids - I always thought they're so noisy and irritating, but now I adore them - it's a 180deg switch after I was preggie with my no.1 almost 6 years ago :)
