Back to baking buns again. Saw this recipe on Sonia's blog and I knew I had to bake it for hubby. He loves beef sausage buns. It has been a while since I baked for him sausage buns. Managed to get mini beef sausages from Jusco . The recipe is so good. Easy to make and the texture is super soft and fluffy. I love making these little buns. Great for afternoon tea snacks or supper. I baked a load of twenties. We ate some for afternoon tea and kept the rest in air tight tupper and leave in fridge till needed. For next day consumption, we took the buns out of the tupper from the fridge, and zapped them in microwave oven for just 30 secs and they were just as good as freshly baked ones. So convenient to have a microwave in the kitchen :)

Mini Beef Sausage Bun - adapted from Sonia
200g High Protein Flour or Bread Flour
130g cold milk
3g instant yeast (1/2 tsp + 1/4 tsp)
1/8 tsp salt
25g butter, room temperature
Mini cocktail beef sausages, defrost and pat dry,
egg wash (1 egg yolk + 1 tbsp milk)
Mix all ingredients except butter in a mixing bowl, combine and knead till smooth.
Add in butter, continue to knead till elastic and smooth dough. Keep aside to rise till double in size.
Divide the dough into 20g each and roll into small balls, rest for 10 mins.
Take a small dough, use a rolling pin to flatten it, then close two ends to make it look like a cigarette, then keep aside to rest for 10 mins. Take a dough, use hand to roll out into a cone shape ( like making crossaint ) Use a rolling pin , roll it flat. Place a sausage at the bigger end, and start to roll like a swiss roll towards the end.
Place sausage rolls on a lined baking sheet. Repeat the rest till finished. Leave it to proof for another 30-45 mins.
Apply egg wash , then sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Bake at a pre-heated oven 170C ( fan forced) for 15-20 mins or 180C (no fan ) for 15-20 mins.
