Roti Boy Coffee Bun

Oooh I always love the alluring fragrant of this coffee bun! It tasted so awfully good when its still warm, crusty cookie topping with buttery filling. But my first attempt on this coffee bun was really a disaster hahaha....filling all oozing out and the topping really looks ugly *no eyes see* >.< So on the second attempt I ditched the butter filling and opted for a cheese filling instead :D This time round it turned out beautifully with a smooth dome, though not as buttery but is good enough for me.

Ingredient (8 buns)
  • 250gm bread flour
  • 50gm sugar
  • 7gm instant yeast
  • 30gm beaten egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 125ml milk
  • 25gm unsalted butter

  • 4 slices cheese, stacked up and sliced into 8 portions
  • 50gm butter, softened
  • 40gm icing sugar
  • 30gm beaten egg
  • 1 tsp coffee granules (dissolved in 2 tsp hot water)
  • 50gm plain flour

  1. Combine flour, sugar, yeast and salt, mix well. 
  2. Add in egg and milk, knead till a dough form. Knead in butter until dough is smooth and elastic, about 8-10mins.
  3. Cover and proof for 60mins until double in bulk.
  4. Punch down dough to release air and knead lightly. Divide dough into 8 portions and shape into rounds, rest for 10mins, covered.
  5. Roll out each dough and wrap with cheese fillings and seal the edge tightly. Place the filled dough on a baking sheet. Cover and proof for another 60mins until double in size.
  6. Topping : Whisk butter and sugar until well combine. Add in egg and coffee mixture and beat well. Fold in flour till smooth batter formed. Spoon filling into a piping bag.
  7. Pipe filling over each dough in spiral patterns.
  8. Preheat oven to 180 deg cel. 20mins until golden brown. Cool on rack completely but best serve warm.
