COFFEE ALMOND BUNS


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

Method

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

Method

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 .
