IMG_6149143g fresh milk

Personal notes:

IMG_6150– i halved the recipe and made eight 30g buns
– i used 100g bread flour, and 25g cake flour
– shape piggies as follows:

picshow20140116_152309using a small scissors, snip 2 corners at the top of the dough

picshow20140116_152327flip the corners up to form the ears. set aside to rise and proceed to shape the bump

picshow20140116_152346take another portion of dough, and pinch a very small portion out of it. roll this small portion into a thin rope

picshow20140116_152402roll the dough out into a flat disc
