coffee choco polo bunremember the last mushroom bread i made? at that time, i wanted to shape these polo buns into mushrooms.. however after considerations, i was afraid the additional weight from cookie dough may prove to be too heavy for the 15g stalk…. and so i ditched the idea…

but aren’t these ice-cream cone shaped buns even cuter? ∩( ・ω・)∩

coffee chocolate polo bun– prepare cookie dough  by beating butter and sugar till well mixed. Add in egg, mix well. Add in flour, almond meal, coffee and cocoa powder and knead till all ingredients are well mixed and comes together in a dough. Chill in fridge till ready to use
准备皮料~ 黄油和糖拌匀。加入蛋液、拌匀。加入面粉、杏仁粉、咖啡粉和可可粉。揉至食材成团、冷藏待用

– mix all ingredients of starter dough and leave it to rise at 26 degrees C for 3 hours. You can do this the night before baking but please chill the starter dough
老面团食材混合,以室温26摄氏度发酵 3小时。此步骤也可在制作面包前一晚准备,不过老面团需冷藏

– mix all ingredients of main dough (except butter and melted chocolate) and knead till it is no longer sticky

– add in butter and continue kneading till dough comes together. Incorporate melted chocolate

– add in chocolate chips at the last 2 minutes of kneading and knead till you achieve window pane stage

– first proofing: proof dough for 30-40 mins at room temperature of 26 degrees celsius
一次发酵:面团于室温 26摄氏度发酵 30-40分钟

– gently punch dough down and divide into desired portions

– rest dough for 30mins at room temperature of 26 degrees celsius
分割的面团静置于室温 26摄氏度,30分钟

– gently punch dough down again and roll into a ball. Divide cookie dough into equal portions (same number as your buns) and place on top of buns. Make lines on the cookie dough with the back of a knife

– second proofing: proof all dough for 30-40mins at room temperature of 26 degrees celsius
二次发酵:面团再次于 26摄氏度室温发酵 30-40分钟

– sprinkle sugar on top of cookie dough and bake for 15-18 mins in preheated oven of 240 degrees C
皮料撒上白糖,将面团送入预热至 240摄氏度烤箱烤 15-18分钟即可

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– i used trehalose in the main dough (instead of granulated sugar) which resulted in a less sweeter bun

– i divided my dough into 70g and shaped them into an inverted raindrop shape. This is then placed directly in the cone to proof. i made 6 ice cream cone buns, and 2 traditional shaped buns
我将面团分割成 70克等份,搓成小雨点形状后,直接摆入冰淇淋饼干筒发酵;做了 6个冰淇淋菠萝包、2个传统菠萝包

– i rolled my cookie dough out between 2 sheets of cling wrap and cut them with a flower shape cookie cutter. I place the cookie dough on top of the bun with the help of the cling wrap (i find this much easier)

– place ice cream cones inside metal pudding cups/moulds when you put buns to proof for second time and bake (as these topple easily)

– my buns were baked for 13 mins in the centre rack of 180 degrees C oven
我的面包用了 180摄氏度中层烤箱烤了 13分钟

and of course, how can i forget about the traditional shaped ones? (^~^)
