I have 2 kids at home. Sometime making little cute bakes to make them happy is my joy.
Last week, I baked some cute lions for them.
Basic Bread buns using natural yeast starter
Recipe source: Jayeon Bread Book
(make 10 standard muffins size buns with no filling)
- 60ml of water
- 50ml of fresh milk
- 1 egg ( abt 50g, lightly beat)
- 100g of refreshed starter
- 5g of salt
- 25g of sugar
- 30g of vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
- 250g of bread flour + more for dusting during shaping.
Steps to prepare the bread dough
- In a large bowl, combined the water, milk & egg.
- Add in the refreshed starter and mix until it dissolved.
- Add in the salt and sugar.
- Add in the oil and mix well.
- Add in the flour and mix well like 1-2mins until the mixture is well incorporated. Note: The dough is soft & sticky.
- Cover the bowl with plastic cling and let the dough rest at room temperature for 2-3hrs until it rise doubled in size.
- Place the bowl into the fridge overnight or 7-10hrs.
- Flour the work surface and take out the overnight dough from the bowl.
- Sprinkle some flour on the dough’s surface. Punch out the air from the dough to deflate it.
- Flatten the dough and fold it into half, repeat this step for 3 times. Add more flour on the surface if you feel stick to handle it.
- Divide the dough into 10 portion.
- Coat your hand lightly with some flour. Make each small portion of dough into round shape and place it into a lined muffin cup on the muffin tray.
- Cover the muffin tray with cling wrap and let the dough rest for 2-3hrs until it doubled its size.
- Preheated the oven at 200C and bake them for 20mins or until the buns’ surface is golden brown.
- Let it cool on a wire rack. Once it is cool, we can start making our lions bun. ROAR!
