I've realised I did not bake any breads for 1 month! I've planned to make some pork patties for lunch the next day, then thinking why not try baking some burgers to go with it! Guess what I only cooked the water roux dough at 9pm!! So by the time I settled down the kids to bed and the water roux is well cool down, is already 10pm >.< hahahaha so from the beginning of kneading to the end of baking is already past 1am! Zzzzzzz This is one of those crazy days when trying bread making in the middle of the night....But I really loves the result of the buns, all are evenly brown with golden hue!! so lovely :D
