Pandan Buns With Coconut Filling

One of my favourite buns. I love pandan and anything with coconut :)

I love pull apart buns. Easy to shape and I love tearing them apart LOL
Recipe is from Mimi Bakery House with some modification
What you need:
The buns:
240g bread flour
20g sugar
3g yeast
3g salt
30g egg
mix water and 2 tbsp homemade concentrated pandan juice to make 120g
25g unsalted butter
beaten egg & fresh milk mixture for egg wash
a little extra butter to brush the buns
The coconut filling:
125g fresh grated coconut
5 tbsp coconut sugar
40g water
1 pandan leaves, knotted
1/2 tsp glutinous rice powder mixed with 1 tbsp water
For the filling:
  1. In a small pot, boil water and sugar til sugar dissolved completely, strain the liquid
  2. Transfer the liquid into a pan, add in coconut and pandan leaves. Stir until mixed well and continue cooking until the desired texture achieved
  3. Stir in glutinous rice mixture, mix well. Set aside for later use
For the buns:
  1. Into the breadmaker pan, add egg and pandan mixture. Followed by bread flour, sugar, and salt at one corner. Add in yeast at another corner. Set to dough function and let the machine do the kneading
  2. After 5mins, add in butter. After 1hour 30mins, dough is ready to shape
  3. Remove from bread pan and divide into 10 equal portions. Round into balls and leave it for 15mins covered with damp towel
  4. Flatten each ball and add coconut filling at the centre (about 2 heaped tsp) and wrap it up, pinch to seal and shape like a ball, place on a lined baking sheet pinched side down
  5. Proof them for another 45mins or til doubled in size
  6. Meantime, preheat oven to 175dec. Brush the dough with beaten egg & milk mixture and bake for 15mins approximately or til it's browned on top and sound hollow when tapped
  7. Remove from oven and transfer to cooling rack. Brush the top with a little butter

I think I can add more filling in the future. I want more coconut! :)
These are fragrant and yummy, full of coconut flavour buns. Love the taste
Texture wise, not the softest buns I ever baked. It turned a little harder the next day, but warming it up in a microwave for 15secs is enough to bring back the softness :)
