Buns Galore

I browsed through Forum.Cari and saw K.Liza's Chocolate bun at the "rotii..rotii!!" thread..The look of those buns were just to tempting not to try, so today's project:
Chocolate buns, followed by Cheese & Herbs Buns

The base for both buns were of the same recipe, but I added cocoa for the Chocolate buns and fresh herbs for the Herb Buns.

This is how they looked before they were baked

Cheese & Herbs Buns

Chocolate Buns

Here's the recipe:

Chocolate buns
250 g bread flour
15 g milk powder
10 g cocoa powder
50 g sugar
5 g active dry yeast
1 tsp bread softner [optional]
1/2 egg
1/2 tsp salt
125 ml water
40 g margarine

chocolate chips for filling

Herb Buns
250 g bread flour
15 g milk powder
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 tsp fresh oregano
20 g sugar
5 g active dry yeast
1 tsp bread softner [optional]
1/2 egg
1 tsp salt
125 ml water
40 g margarine

cubed cheese for filling

How to make:

1. Mix together all the dry ingredients and later adding in the margarine and water.
2. Knead for 5 minutes using mixer or 10-12 minutes for hand kneading. Leave to proof for the 1st time approx 30-40minutes
3. Punch down gas. Divide into 9 equal sized portions. Add the filling in the middle and place in a well oiled baking tray. Leave to proof for the 2nd time for 40-60minutes.
For the Herb Buns, add in the fresh herbs when your almost done with the kneading process. Brush with egg&milk wash.
4. Bake in a preheated oven of 200 deg for 15-20minutes. After the buns are taken out from the oven, brush with some milk and cover with a piece of cloth. This will make the surface of the buns softer

My Chocolate Buns

My Cheese & Herbs Buns

These buns are utterly soft..maybe it's because of the bread softner and emplex I added to the dough. The trick to have the best results for these buns is to let them RISE completely..the higher they rise, the more air there is in the buns, making them soft and airy and delicious. Don't force the buns to rise..let them take their time and you'll have soft buns for sure! ( I learned that after a few errors I've made in the past )

Such delicious buns.. the cheese & herbs are best eaten this way; tear them in half, using ur oven/oven toaaster give it a nice heating up for say, 3-4minutes to give the inside a crispy surface and melting cheese as well Wickedly delicious with hot mushroom or chicken soup..yummm yummmm!

And as for the isi of the roti, I personally think you can add apape pon in this dough., you name it..raisins, nuts, dry fruits.. The dough is a lil' bit sticky at first, if it's TOO sticky then it means you need to knead the dough a little bit more. Add in your fruits/nuts when ur almost finish with the kneading process.

Thanks again to K.Liza for such an easy and wonderful recipe. The original recipe can be viewed here tomorrow nak masak ape pulak ek? Byk sgt benda nak try.. I just can't pick one
