Assortment of Savory Buns

I finally tried out the bread recipe of Daily Delicious . She is such a talented lady and I just love browsing through her blog looking at all her wonderful bakings. My friend Elin told me that her bread recipe always turn out moist and soft without using any bread softener or bread improver and she was right. Even Carlos who like his crusty bread said it was really good and polish off 3 of the buns at one go. For these buns I used her basic bread dough recipe and change the bread flour to whole-wheat.

Ingredients :

300 grm of flour (I used whole-wheat flour)
5 grm instant yeast
10 grm sugar
1 tsp of salt
30 grm butter
220-230 grm of one egg + whole milk
One egg plus 2 tsp of water for glazing the bread

1. Fit the mixer with a dough hook attachment, put the flour, salt,sugar and yeast in the mixing bowl, mix to combine. Slowly drizzle in the egg and milk mixture, work it on medium speed until the dough comes together and forms a nice ball of dough. Continue to mix for 10 minutes on medium speed.
2. Add in the butter and continue to mix until dough comes together again.
3. Put the dough into a lightly buttered bowl. Let the dough rise in a warm place until double in size.
4. Take the dough out of the bowl, deflate by touching it lightly. Cut the dough into 10 pieces, roll into a ball and let them rest for 10 minutes.
5. At this stage you can shape and put any kind of sweet or savory fillings you like.
6. Place the dough on the lined baking paper. Let it rest until the dough rise almost double in size.
7. Preheat the oven to 375 degree F. Brush the bread with egg wash. Bake for 8 minutes then reduce the temperature to 350 degree F and bake for 5 minutes or until the breads are golden brown.

Flat the bread dough, place the slice sausage in the center, top it with some mix veggies, drizzle some mayo and tomato ketchup.

Slice the bread at the center, top it with some chopped parsley and butter

Flatten the bread dough, roll up the sausage, make a few cut on the dough (not all the way through) then make a few twist on the dough and sprinkle some grated cheese to the top.

Roll out the dough into a long strip and wrap it up around the sausage.

Note : For the milk and egg measurement. Beat the egg in the measuring cup and then top it up with the milk up to get 220 grms.

You're so creative. The assortments of buns looks like it's being dished out from a bakery.

They look so lovely! Bread baking is still an area I am getting into but I'm getting some good results. I'll definitely be trying this recipe out, thanks for sharing!

Sunshine Mom said...

I remember getting similar treats in Germany when we lived there. I miss them!! I can't wait to try these!

Janet @Gourmettraveller88 said...

Used to have these in HK but have not tried to make them myself, they are actually more difficult to make than a normal loaf of bread I find. I should give it a go sometime. Yours look absolutely perfect!

Anonymous said...

I would love to try this recipe out sometime...but living in the US, we don't go by grams. I tried using an online measurement converter but the numbers don't come out evenly...so if I were to try the recipe...should I round up or down?

Finla said...

Was going through the recipe.
220-230 grm of one egg + whole milk

Is it 220 gm eggs
plus 230 gm milk
or 1 eggs
and how much milk.

ICook4Fun said...

Sunshine Mom, hope you like these bread.

Janet, thank you. Actually it's not very difficult to make these once you get the hang of it.

Anon, its always good to get a weighing scale especially when we find recipe in grams. The recipe won't change much if the number up a little bit.

Happy cook, beat the egg in the measuring cup and then top it up with the milk to get 220 grms.

Finla said...

Thankyou for the info, willbe making this in summer holidays.
