Banana Milk Tea Buns

Oh so cute! First time baking bread bun in a muffin cup and turns out looking really like a muffin ^.^ Even my boy prefers to call it a muffin even though I told him is a bread! ~.~ Though the tea flavour is not very distinctive but they are very soft and fluffy! The flavourful bananas kneaded into the dough may have camouflaged the milk tea taste :) A very easy dough to handle as long as you do not add too much milk tea at one go :D

shaped proofed dough into 6 portions...

 wrapped in a slice of banana...

sealed up and placed into a muffin cup for 2nd proofing...

Ingredient (6 buns)
  • 200gm bread flour
  • 20gm sugar
  • 2gm salt
  • 4gm instant yeast
  • 20gm unsalted butter, softened
  • 120gm milk
  • 3 black tea bags
  • 50gm bananas + extra 1 banana as fillings

  1. Place milk and tea bags in a saucepan and bring to boil. Turn off heat and steep till cool completely. Discard teabags and reserve 100gm milk tea for use.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, salt and instant yeast in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add in 50gm bananas and mix well.
  4. Add in 80gm milk tea and knead till a dough is formed. Add more milk tea if the dough is too dried.
  5. Add in butter and knead for 10mins till dough is smooth and elastic. Cover with damp cloth and proof for 1 hour or until double in bulk.
  6. Punch down dough to release gas and knead lightly. Divide into 6 equal portions and roll round. Rest for 10mins.
  7. Roll out each dough and wrap with a slice of banana. Seal edge tightly and place the dough into a muffin cup. Proof for another 40 mins until the dough raise to the edge of the cup cases.
  8. Bake in preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 20mins until golden brown.
