Sweet Buns With Chicken Serunding

For these buns, I used the Sweet Bun Dough recipe [see this post] and used chicken serunding [from a Muslim friend] as filling.
These buns are fluffy, soft and moist.  Nice buns.

Ingredients for the buns [Sponge Dough Method]
[makes  16  buns]
Step 1 - Ingredients
100 gm plain flour
150 gm bread flour [you can replace plain flour and use all 250 gm bread flour]
4 tsp instant yeast [I used 3 tsp]
130-150 ml  cold water
  • Mix yeast with water in mixing bowl, then add in flour.  Knead to form a smooth dough.
  • Cover and leave to proof for 1-1 1/2 hours or double in size.

Step 2 - Ingredients
250 gm bread flour
100 gm sugar [I used 80 gm]
1 tbsp milk powder
1 tsp salt
1 small egg [20 gm] - can used large egg and set aside some for egg glaze
130 ml cold water
50 gm butter

Egg glaze
**Step 1 - If not using dough, store in plastic and refrigerate
  1. Add all Step 2 ingredients  [except butter] to dough from Step 1.  Knead from low speed until well combined.  Continue to knead on medium speed until dough is soft and smooth [takes about 7-10 minutes].  Add in butter, continue to knead until dough is soft and elastic or window pane stage [**Notes - if not baking buns immediately, the dough can be kept in plastic bag tied up and refrigerate.   Thaw to room temperature before using.   Advisable to keep up to 48 hours only]. OR
  2. Shape dough into a ball.  Cover and leave to proof for 15 minutes.   Punch down and divide dough into 16 portions of equal weight.  Shape dough into round balls.
  3. Roll out each ball and flatten dough, place a spoonful or more of any filling in the centre.  Gather up the seam and seal well.   Place bun on paper casing, seam side down on baking tray.  Finish shaping all the buns.
  4. Leave to rise for 30-45 minutes or until double in size.  Brush with egg/milk glaze. Sprinkle with sesame seeds [optional].
  5. Baked in preheated oven at 190 degrees [middle shelf]  for 12-15 minutes or until golden. 
  6. Brush buns with some melted butter [can skip this step if you do not want the buns surface to be oily.  This step is to create a soft crust].   
  7. Remove and leave to cool on rack or serve warm.
