Step by step
Preparations

Preparations

MAIN INGREDIENTS
300 g bread flour
2 teaspoons instant yeast
10 g or 1 tablespoon milk powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
55 g caster sugar
1 egg
90 g orange sweet potato
90 ml water
25 g butter
extra butter for serving

Method

1
 
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl or stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Mix on low speed.
2
 
Add in egg and mashed potatoes. Mix well.
3
 
Add cold water in small separate drips and continue beating for about 20 minutes on medium speed until the dough comes together
4
 
Add in butter and beat for another 10 minutes until the dough turns elastic. At this point, you can test it by stretching some dough. The dough should snap lightly.
5
 
Place the dough into a light buttered bowl and let it rise in a warm place until double in size. Depending on room temperature, it can take between 30 to 45 minutes.
6
 
Once doubled, punch down the dough to let the air out.
7
 
Promptly divide dough into 16 even-sized balls – weighed for accuracy. Then arrange on a greased 7" x 7" pan and let the balls rest for another 20 minutes or until they rise.
8
 
Using a brush, apply the rest of the egg mixture on the dough balls and let it rest for 5 minutes before baking in a preheated oven at 185 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.
9
 
Once out of the oven, brush melted butter on hot buns and serve immediately with more butter.
