This is a ‘wow’ recipe I came across yesterday .
As usual made my changes to the recipe,it was
soft and the coffee taste was too yummy!
The changes I made was,adding almond flour
to crown each bun.As I liked the texture baked
some plain buns too, and served with boiled
egg slices, butter, cheese,pepper and slit green
chillies ( just to get the flavour).This is simple
but a delicious egg bun recipe .
Moving to the subject of this post – Coffee buns.
INGREDIENTS ( tried kneading by hand )
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp yeast
200 ml warm milk
75 gm butter
1 tsp salt
Mix in all the ingredients together,except
butter and bind to a soft dough.
After binding,add in the butter and knead till
the butter is well corporated.
Allow to rise double.
After it has proven,punch down the air,and
knead again for few minutes .
Divide into portions,and place each dough on a
greased tray .(It’s best to use parchment paper)
For the icing
1 tsp instant coffee powder
A tsp of water to mix the coffee
2.5-3 tbsp sugar
1 egg ( lightly beaten)
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tsp cornflour
Mix all the ingredients together .
Transfer to a piping bag,and pipe only half
from the top downward.( as the cream will
spread down .
After making I realised, that I could have
sprinkled some slivered almonds for a
richer taste .
Anyway without almonds,it was awesome !
Do try this excellent recipe .
