Hello everyone!:) I just wanted to share with you guys my favorite baked buns recipe taken from House of Annie`s blog which is extremely easy and if you have the patience to make your buns from scratch, I highly recommend this recipe because it is easy to follow and you can pretty much add anything as the fillings for the buns I added vegetarian bbq pork and vegetables and it came out really good! The original recipe uses red beans as the fillings but you can always substitute it with anything you like such as curry potato, nutella and just about anything you fancy:)
I hope you like the recipe and have fun baking!
Baked Red Bean Buns
Adapted from "World of Bread" by Alex Goh
480g Bread Flour
120g All Purpose Flour
20g Milk Powder (I substituted with Coffee Mate)
4 tsps Instant Yeast
300 ml Cold Water
1. Mix (A) till well blended.
I just stirred it around with a spoon.
2. Add (B) and knead on your mixer with hook attachment until it forms a dough. I add the egg and then turn the mixer on slow and drizzle the water in slowly as it is mixing.
3. Add (C) and continue to knead to form a smooth and elastic dough, about 10 minutes on my Kitchen Aid on 4 speed (with breaks when the motor got hot).
4. Gather dough into a ball and place in a bowl that has been oiled. Flip dough around to oil the entire dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for about 50-60 minutes or till it doubles in size. If you are having trouble getting it to double, heres a tip:
Fill a small bowl with water and microwave on high for about 1 minute. Move bowl to corner and sit your dough in the hot steamy microwave (with the door closed, of course) for the resting time. That should do the trick!
5. Once dough has doubled, divide the dough into small balls (you should get between 18-24 pieces depending on how big or small you want your buns to be). Rest for 10 mins (normally by the time Im done with the last ball, the first ball is ready for filling) and then fill with red bean paste (about 1-1.5 Tbsp per bun):flatten the balls, put the paste in the center and gather the dough around the filling and pinch to close.
Flip over and put the pinched part on the bottom of the parchment lined tray (make sure to space them a few inches apart).
6. Once all the buns are done, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let it proof for another 50-60 minutes or until doubled in size.
7. About the last 10 mins of proofing, preheat the oven to 350 F. Beat one egg and brush the buns gently with eggwash. If you desire, sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on the bun.
8. Bake in the oven for 12-15 mins or until golden brown on top.
