Please come to KkoKko’s Cafe and have a cup of coffee and a Roti bun~~~
Last Saturday, all of us went to Honey Berry after Pho noodle for lunch. It was Zachary’s turn to pick a restaurant.
Each kids had a Roti bun along with frozen yogurt. When I saw how much they enjoyed those buns … I wanted to bake some myself. As soon as I returned home I went on a research…I found the recipe from Korean cooking website. I have baked already once and today was my second time baking these buns. The second time around, I revised the recipe. They came out even better!!
When Sheena took a bite… “Mmmm~ It’s not buttery as HoneyBerry’s but it tastes good and healthier.” That’s exactly how I felt about these buns. All the kids said, “Mmmm~” when they took their first bite. I was a happy baker.
Here is Kim’s family Yummy Roti Bun Recipe~~
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons castor sugar
2 tablespoons, butter at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 package dried yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
1/2 cup lukewarm milk
1 egg , at room temperature
1 egg & 1 tablespoon water for egg wash
Sift the flours,sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Add the yeast and mix well. Make a well in the center; add milk,and egg. With a wooden spoon, stir from the center, incorporating flour with each turn, to obtain a rough dough.
Transfer to a floured surface and knead in the butter evenly.(knead until smooth and elastic) Place a greased bowl, cover and let stand in a warm place for until double in size.
Punch down the dough lightly and knead briefly. Divide the dough into 9 portions. Let dough rest for 10 minutes. Then roll the dough into balls.
Brush with egg wash and cover loosely and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume. (about 30 -40 minutes)
Lets making mocha topping while dough is rising…..
2 teaspoons instant coffee or espresso
1 teaspoon hot water
7 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup Confectioners’ sugar, sift (1/2 cup for regular sugar )
1 egg plus 1 yolk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Combine coffee and hot water and mix well. Set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar until soft. Add the eggs and coffee mixture, beat until well blended.
Slowly beat in the flour in 2 batches, beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Fill the topping in a plastic bag and keep in the fridge until ready to use. When the dough is ready…
Cut off a tiny tip of the bag and pipe the topping on the buns in a spiral starting from the top center.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and bake for 15 -20 minutes.
Remove buns from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
