Cheesy Rosy Bun
A recipe that should have rose powder ( Which I have no idea where to get) in the bread, but I make do with cheese and maple sugar filling. The pictures of the buns caught my eyes, while flipping through the recipe book and I thought just make use of any other ingredients to replace the rose powder would do. Though it'd be a bun that looks like a rose as well as taste like a rose!! I didn't do a good job to make the buns look like roses, but I do think the texture and taste are great for a simple breakfast. However, my little boy said they look like his belly button!! :-/ May be I shall do another cinnamon rose next.
Bread Flour 15g
Unsalted butter 10g
Sour Cream/ Yogurt 55g
Warm Water 50g
Slice Cheese 4 pieces
Maple Sugar (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients and form a rough dough. Knead the dough till smooth and springy. Leave to rise for 60 minutes, till the dough gets to double the volume.
2. Divide dough into 8 small portion 30-35g each. Roll up to ball shapes. Rest for 10 minutes.
3. Roll each small round dough to flat circles and fill in cheese and maple sugar and roll up like a Swiss Roll. Top the filled dough onto another flat dough and roll up again , then cut the center and you will get 2 ends that look like a rose. Sit the flat base on a baking sheet or cupcake case. Let them rise for 30-40 minutes. Bake the buns in pre heated oven at 180'c for 12 minutes. Cool them on wire rack after baked.
