Cheese Buns

Friday night, I decided to make sweet buns, using the recipe from Happy Home Baker. Since my kids love cheese, I decided to add cheddar cheese to the dough to make cheese buns. It was yummy, fluffy and the kids loved it. We finished it on Saturday!

Today, we had a farm tour with the SMH Feb/Mar05 gang. I made sponge cups and cheese buns! Everybody loved the cheese buns, even the picky YiXuan.

I need to work on the shaping of the dough, all different shapes and sizes. If I'm baking buns, I have to put the tray in the lower top rack level.


Cheese Buns
150g bread flour
150g cake flour
60g caster sugar
5g instant yeast
3g salt
50g butter, cut into small cubes
125g milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
100g cheddar cheese, grated.

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add milk, butter and egg. Using a fork, mix the ingredients together (mashing the butter) to make a dough.
2. Place dough on a lightly-floured smooth work table. Using a plastic scrapper, scrap the sticky dough together. Knead the dough - fold, press heals of palms into the dough, then give the dough a 1/4 turn - till a smooth elastic dough is achieved (approx 10min).
4. Grease the dough and place in a large greased mixing bowl. Cover. Takes approximately 60min for the dough to double in size.
5. Remove from bowl and give the dough a few quick kneads.
6. Cut into equal portions. Flatten the dough into a rectangle and spread grated cheese on the dough. Roll up like a swiss roll, tucking the ends under. Place on baking tray and cover, while working on the other dough portions. Once all the dough have been shaped, let the dough rest for 20min.
7. Brush dough with beaten egg. Bake in a preheated 160oC oven for 15min. Remove from oven and allow to cool on rack before slicing. Yummy Bread!
