Soft Sausage Buns


My boy loves sausage buns and when I discovered a recipe that makes soft bread, I jumped at the chance to make him some. It is not too difficult, just need a little practise in braiding or plaiting, that's all. With extra rising, the bread gets real soft.
I first made the dough in the bread maker, then I took it out to knead and shape. Pretty simple actually.

Recipe for Sweet Bun Dough

170ml water
90ml milk
1 egg
50g condensed milk
500 g bread flour (A)
25g milk powder (A)
105 g butter (A)
70 g sugar (A)
1 tsp salt (A)
13 g instant yeast (A)
1. Put all the ingredients into the bread maker to make the dough.
2. If you don't have a machine, you can do it by conventional method using a mixer. Add all the (A) ingredients into the mixer.
3. At low speed, pour in the water slowly and beat for a minute.
4. Turn to medium speed for 10 minutes.
5. Remove dough from the mixer and leave it on the table and cover it with a big bowl for 15 to 20 minutes.
6. Punch down dough and stretch dough and fold over a few times. Rest dough for another 20 minutes or when the dough is double in size.
7. If you want a softer bread, you can repeat another round and rest it again.
8. Reshape dough into desired shapes
Sausage Buns
240g of Sweet Bun Dough
Cinnamon powder
Evaporated milk
1. Divide the 240g of sweet bun dough into 4 portions of 60g each (You can double the portions if you want to make more buns)

2. Shape into rounds. Leave for 5 minutes.

3. Flatten the dough into long shapes. Place a piece of sausage in the middle of the dough.

4.Cut five lines on the the right and left side of the dough. Fold the left part to the right and fold the right part to the left to make a plaited pattern.

5. Place the dough onto a greased baking tray. Leave to rest for 35 minutes or till double in size.

6. In the mean time, heat the oven at 190 C.

7. When doubled, brush the buns with evaporated milk, and sieve some cinnamon powder on top of the buns.

8. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes till golden brown.

Thank you for your generous compliments. I feel that I have to practise more on my plaiting skills. But my kids love it anyway.

Your buns look lovely. It seems that your recipe does not require a very long resting time of the dough, so I'd like to try it out. But, don't you think I can knead the dough with hands? I'm using a Philips stand mixer, which is not a heavy-duty one, so I'm not sure it can knead bread dough. One more thing, don't you think I can brush beaten egg over the buns before baking, instead of evaporated milk?
Thank you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes you can certainly knead by hand. Just follow the steps and be hardworking until it does not stick to your hands. You can also put egg wash on the buns, it is not an issue at all. I started out making bread by hand, it was very therapeutic. Enjoy.

Hi Foodmaestro,
Thank you for your reply, it helps me a lot in understanding the recipe. But now I think there's something missing in your sweet bun dough recipe: if i use a KitchenAid mixer, when should I add milk and condensed milk? Right after adding water, perhaps? Please kindly advise. Thank you so much.
