When Audrey asked for Roti buns for her award yesterday…. I used this recipe and hoped it will be better than my first Roti recipe~
Here’s Today’s Recipe~
3 cups bread flour,sifted
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 package dried yeast
1 egg, at room temperature, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups warm milk
5 tablespoons butter,at room temperature
Cold butter~ cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Mix flour, sugar and salt in electric mixer with dough hook or paddle on low speed for one minute.(hook works better )
Add yeast, mix well.
Then add egg and milk.
Mix on low speed for one minute then mix on medium speed for 7-8 minutes.
Mix in butter and mix 5 minutes more on medium speed until soft, smooth and elastic dough. Remove dough from bowl and shape into a ball.
Place in a bowl,cover, and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume.
Punch down and knead briefly.
Divide the dough into 17 – 18 portions. Cover and let the dough rest for 15 minutes. Cut cold butter into about 1/2-inch cubes.
Fatten a ball of dough and place a butter cube.
Gather the edge and pinch to seal.
Place dough on a greased/parchment paper.
Cover loosely and leave to rise in a warm place about 45 minutes.
I made the topping while the dough is rising…
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 tablespoon hot water
Combine coffee and water in a small bowl. Set aside.
Beat butter and sugar in electric mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed for 5 minutes until mixture is light and fluffy.Gradually beat in eggs. Mix in coffee. Sift flour into mixture and mix at low speed.
Fill the topping in a plastic bag and keep in the fridge until ready to use. ( You will have more than you need for these buns, but the topping will keep for 1 week in the refrigerator and freeze in a freezer-proof container for up to 1 month.)
Cut off a tiny tip of the bag and pipe the topping on the buns in a spiral starting from the top center.
Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees F for 12- 15 minutes.
Cool on a rack.
These buns are for Audrey.

Mmmm~ I like it, Mom~
Hope you like them Audrey~
