我不是蛋黄酥 Butter Cup Bread

照片的效果乍看之下很像蛋黄酥。中秋节已经过了这么久了,我当然没有搞蛋黄酥,这是特地妈妈而做的奶油面包杯。用muffin tray烘的面包,圆鼓鼓的,外形很讨喜。



面包软中带韧性 (chewy),不知道是因为配方,还是因为换了高粉的牌子。以前我都是用Prima牌的,这回用的是Bake King的,第一次买来试试看。


Butter Cup Bread 奶油面包杯

250g bread flour
50g plain four
¼ tsp salt
1 ¼ tsp instant yeast
180ml cold water
2 tbsp milk powder
20g butter (soften at room temperature)
Glazing: 1 tbsp whole egg (lightly beaten)
Topping: some black and white sesame
Fillings: 12 small cubes cold butter and some icing sugar

1) Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre, pour the cold water in the well. Mix the ingredients to form soft dough.
2) Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead and mix in the butter into the dough. Continue to knead until the dough becomes smooth, elastic and non-sticky.
3) Form the dough into round ball, place it into a lightly greased big mixing bowl and cover with cling wrap, let it rise in room temperature till double in size (about 1 hour in our weather).
4) Punch out the gas in the dough, let it rest for 15 mins.
5) Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, roll into round ball, wrap each dough with one small cube of butter coated with icing sugar, pinch the dough to seal the seam tightly.

6) Place the dough (seam side down) in a greased 12-hole muffin tray. Cover with cling wrap and let it proof for 40-60 mins (size of the dough after second proofing as shown in picture below).

7) Apply egg wash and sprinkle sesames on top.
8) Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 12 mins. Remove bread from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.

Happy baking!

  10. Hi everyone,
    Thanks for your compliments.

    You can certainly achieve this with hand kneading. Before I purhcase my BM I also kneaded by hand. Practise make perfect. And I am also using a conventional oven for all my bakes.

  11. Hi Angel,

    I really love this bun. But i am so lazy and would like to make use the bread machine. at what stage shall i incorporate the machine to do the kneading? I am very new on baking. :-)

    Thk you.


  12. Hi Hei,

    In fact I am using my bread machine to do the kneading.

    Step 1 & 2 can use the "Dough" function of the bread machine. Follow your bread machine manual to add ingredients to the pan in sequence. Usually liquid, salt, sugar, follow by flour and yeast. Let the machine knead for a while, once the ingredients come together you can start to add soften butter.

  13. Hi Angel,

    Thk you so much for your reply. I finally recalled your blog is the one that I left this comment. I had been following too many food blog till I lost track. haha.


  14. Hi Angel,

    I tried out your recipe today. Though I had made some mistake during the process, but it still turn out soft in texture. My family love it so much. :-)

    Just a qtn, you mentioned if using machine to do the kneading, once the texture is elastic, remove the dough from machine and proceed to step 3 which required the dough to rest for 1 hour. I am just wondering for the bread machine, the option of "dough" stated 1.30 hrs. so can i just leave the elastic dough in the machine after step 2 and rest it there till the machine finish the process? (ie, till the whole cycle of "dough" process is finished in the machine).

    From Hei

  15. Hi Hei,

    Yes. Feel free to leave the dough in bread machine for the first proofing but I usually take it out to proof in room temperature ad our local weather is very suitable for proofing. I do this to save electricity too. Just wondering which country are you from? In winter it's better yo use the bread machine for proofing.
