Freshly Baked Buns Stuffed

Dont you love freshly baked bread straight out of the oven. Well here is a recipe for freshly baked buns stuffed with almost anything you love. My mom’s friend shared this with us and I’m so glad she did coz it’s my absolute favourite. I experimented it with whole wheat flour and it’s just as good.

This time, I just shaped them into round shaped balls. Next time, I’m going to try croissant shaped.

Mini buns stuffed with sausage

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Divide the dough into 20 small balls.
  • Press a ball against the palm of your hand till it is a flat circle. Fill it with a bit of the stuffing.
  • Close up to form a ball. Ensure you press the ends together so that it does not open up while baking.
  • Place a wax sheet on a baking tray and place the buns on it.
  • To give it a bit of a golden look, you can brush a beaten egg on the top of the buns
  • Bake at 400 F for 10 – 15 min. You can broil for about 1 min, to ensure that the top of the buns golden.
  • Remove and cool, before packing in an air-tight container.
  • You can heat it up a bit before serving, as it tastes great warm.

The whole house smells of fresh bread!!!!

Tips:

  • If substituting with Wheat flour, add more water as whole wheat soaks up more water.
  • Ensure you use lukewarm water and not boiling hot water as it inhibits the yeast.
