Potato bun with bread maker

Beware! This is a super soft potato bun recipe. You will fall in love and bake it over and over again πŸ˜‰

The recipe:

  1. 80g milk
  2. 50g egg
  3. 80g mashed potato
  4. 50g sugar
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 250g bread (high protein) flour 
  7. 10g milk powder
  8. 3g yeast
  9. 25g butter

Custard topping (20g instant custard + 70g milk)

Using the SKG3920 breadmaker, these are the steps:

  1. Set function 10. DOUGH (1.5 hrs) – done first proofing
  2. Remove dough from baking pan, deflate & divide them into 50g small portion. (Tips: sticky dough, I dust my hand with flour to work with the dough)
  3. Shape it and place it on greased baking tray. Put it inside oven for second proofing (1 hr, place a bowl of hot water together with dough inside the oven, electricity off) – dough will double in size
  4. Egg wash and put some custard topping on dough. 
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20 mins (150C). 
  6. Enjoy it with your loved ones ❀️
