Breadmaking - Sweet Dough Recipe

Sweet Dough Recipe




Ingredients:-

200 ml Water + Egg (egg optional)
4 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Yeast
350g Bread Flour
2 tbsp Milk Powder (optional) (can be replaced with cocoa, milo, ovaltine, etc)
3 tbsp Shortening (can be replaced with butter or margarine)
1/2 tsp Salt

Method:-

Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead into a dough. Dough is ready once it looks smooth.

Leave dough to rest for an hour or two, depending on the surrounding temperature. Dough should double in size.


Dough immediately after kneading

One hour later...


Once dough has increased to double its size, you can work on it.

Divide dough into small portions. I prefer to make mini buns which would require 16g. Or if you want to make bigger portions, you will require approximately 30g.


Chicken Floss Bun

  • Divide dough into portions of 16g or 30g
  • Shape into balls by pinching the dough
  • Put balls of dough onto greased baking tray about 2 cm apart.
  • Cover and leave to rise for about one hour
  • Brush with egg (optional)
  • Bake in preheated 200 degrees C oven for approximately 10 - 15 minutes till golden brown. If using oven with fan, then bake at 180 degrees C for 8 - 12 minutes.
  • Cool the buns
  • Slit the centre of the buns
  • Spread mayonnaise in the centre and top of the buns
  • Coat buns with chicken floss

Hotdog Bun

  • Divide dough into 16g portions
  • Roll dough lengthwise (like a pencil)
  • Wrap dough around mini cocktail hotdogs
  • Ensure ends of dough are 'tucked in' to prevent them from opening up
  • Leave to rise for about one hour
  • Pipe mayonnaise and tomato sauce on top (optional)
  • Bake in preheated 200 degrees C oven for approximately 10 - 15 minutes till golden brown. If using oven with fan, then bake at 180 degrees C for 8 - 12 minutes.


This is plain without the mayonnaise and tomato sauce
