IMG_8176sometimes, i just have absolutely no idea what i’m shaping

Recipe adapted from Cookpad

Ingredients (makes 13 buns)

250g bread flour
40g butter
2 tbsp condensed milk
2 tbsp sugar
12g skim milk powder
4g salt
175g water * i used milk
4g instant dry yeast
joshinko (i.e. rice flour) as desired


面包粉 250克
黄油 40克
炼奶 2大匙
糖 2大匙
脱脂奶粉 12克
盐 4克
水 175克*我用了牛奶
即溶干酵母 4克
粘米粉 适量


IMG_8174– place all ingredients (yes.. ALL, including butter) into bread machine or mixer and knead till you get a smooth dough *add a little bit of flour if you find your batter too wet and sticky but not too much as it will affect the texture. i personally added 3 sprinkles of flour
所有食材(yes..包括黄油)放入面包机或厨师器。和面至拓展状态 *如发觉面团太沾手,可撒入一些面粉。不可太多,要不然面包口感就不好啦。我个人就“撒入”了3小手面粉

– allow bread to proof for the first time, then punch dough down and divide into 13 pieces. rest for 15 mins
面团进行一次发酵后,排气、分隔成13等份。休面 15分钟

– shape dough into ball and allow to proof again till double in size

– sieve joshinko on buns and bake in preheated oven of 160 degrees for 15 mins *do not walk away when baking as bread browns easily! 
烘焙前在面包筛上粘米粉,送入预热至160摄氏度烤箱烤15分钟即可 *烘焙过程可别走远哈。。面包上色快。。可要死盯死盯哈

    Hi Victoria

    Merry Christmas.
    May I ask if I should add butter after or not if I kned the bread by hand.

    Thank you so much.

      Hi Nunoi, knead everything together. that\’s the beauty of this recipe, you do not need to wait to incorporate butter later. please make sure the butter is softened. hope this helps
