  • 3 tbsp milk powder

Recipe's preparation

  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

    Weigh 350 grams lukewarm water into your clean bowl. Add 5 Tbsp sugar + 3 tsp dried instant yeast. Place lid with MC on bowl. To activate yeast mixture: mix for 3 minutes / 37 degrees / Stir Gentle stir setting.

    Add 660 grams of baker's flour/high grade flour to bowl. Add 3 Tbsp milk powder + 1 tsp salt + 2 Tbsp oil + 1 lightly beaten egg. Place lid & MC on bowl then enter Dough Mode; knead for 2 minutes.

    Place bowl in a greased bowl or wrap up dough in silicone dough mat and place in warm environment to prove until doubled in size. Once proved shape the dough out into a log on silicone mat or floured surface. Cut/portion into 12-16 even sized pieces and form each portion into balls/buns. Optional: dip the top of each bun into breadcrumbs now if you wish.

    Place buns on your lined baking tray with a few centimetres between each. Cover with a clean tea towel and place somewhere warm for 20-30 minutes for their second prove. Meanwhile preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius on bake.

    Place buns into oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden on top. Serve warm or cold. Beautiful just with butter. Can be eaten savoury with soups etc or as a breakfast bun with jam.
