Corned Beef Rolls

Just back from Singapore.  As promised, will be sharing the recipe for making these delectable corned beef rolls. Making bread is fun and to feel the dough stretching to window pane stage is so therapeutic . I styled them into 2 designs. One is the swiss roll type and the other is the rose shaped . Sorry , I am still learning to refine my styling :p)  After baking the rose did not stay in shape.  I believe practice makes perfect.  Though the rose buns are not nicely shaped BUT the texture and taste is wonderful ! Both taste the same just different in shape.  I love making different was fun , like play doh for adults :) Anyway here is the promised recipe .   Hope you like it as much as we do :) 

ingredients are half a tin of corned beef mashed and blend together with
diced red onions, chillies and diced green pepper

divide dough into two portions - one for the rolls and
one for the rose shape buns
for the rolled buns, roll out 1st portion of dough into 
rectangular shape of 1/4" thickness,
spread the mashed corned beef mixture on surface. 
Place the long side facing you and start rolling 
towards the end like how you roll a  swiss roll .

cut into equals parts and place them on greased baking tray
and let them proof for 25 mins , then bake in preheated oven of 180C
for 15 to 20 mins till golden brown and cooked

for the 2nd portion of dough, divide into equal portions, flatten dough
and roll into a round disc.  Cut slit from outside inward as shown in the
picture above. Place a heaped tablespoon of corned beef mixture in the centre
and wrap as shown in the picture below

place the shaped rose bun on greased tray and let proof for 25 mins,
bake in preheated oven of 180C for  15 -20 mins till golden brown

love the aroma of freshly baked buns...what more with corned beef fillings
