Spring Onion & Egg Buns 葱花餐包

Okay... I think it is very obvious by now that bread is something that appears very, VERY frequently in my house. We have bread mostly for weekday breakfast, otherwise will be overnight oats.

So here you are, another bun appearance :P

Short and sweet post. Be back soon :)

Spring Onion & Egg Buns

Gelatinized Basic Sweet Bread recipe by Alex Goh

Gelatinized dough
50g bread flour
35ml boiling water

1. Place flour in a mixing bowl.
2. Add hot boiling water and mix with wooden spoon to form a rough dough.
3. Cover bowl with cling film and leave dough to cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour, and up to 48 hours.

Basic sweet bread dough
(Yield roughly 480g dough. 
I divided them into 6 equal portions. You can make 8 buns with each dough at 60g too.)

150g bread flour
50g plain flour
40g sugar
10g milk powder
1/2 tbsp instant yeast
1/4 tsp salt
87ml cold water
1/2 cold egg (about 30g)
30g cold butter, cubed 

5 spring onions, chopped into little bits
1 egg
a dash of salt and black / white pepper
(Combine all and mix well.)

1. Combine flour, sugar, milk powder, yeast and salt together in a mixing bowl.
2. Tear the gelatinized dough into pieces and add to the bowl along with the eggs
3. Using a stand electric mixer, mix on low speed, adding cold water gradually.
4. Mix until dough is well combined and leave the side of bowl.
5. Add in the cold butter cubes and mix on medium speed until dough is smooth.
6. Shape dough into a ball, leave to proof for 40 min or until doubled.
7. Punch down dough to rid excess air, divide dough into 6 or 8 equal portions at 80g or 60g respectively. Roll it round and set aside for 5 min to let it relax for easier handling.

8. Roll dough into oblong shape and place dough on greased baking tray. Repeat the same for all dough.
9. Lightly grease a sharp knife and make a cut in centre of dough. 
10. Cover with clean moist cloth and leave to proof for 40min. 

11. Spoon spring onion and egg mixture over the cut top of buns. It is okay if mixture flows over.
12. Bake in preheated oven at 180deg for 25min or till bun top turn slightly golden brown. (Every oven works differently so indicated temperature might or might not work for you.)
