Sweet Buns

16 December 2007

Have been quite long since I started baking and all that I have baked are cakes, muffins and cookies. I feel like baking something new and after seeing sweet tooth's first attempt to bake buns, I decided to try it myself.

I also followed Happy Homebaker's Sweet Buns recipe. I took a really long time to knead but still had not been able to knead until it can be stretched into a thin layer without tearing. Then I gave up and left to to proof. Due to the rainy and cold weather these few days, I left it to proof for nearly 2 hours. I also had problems shaping the buns well and they all turned out looking out of shape. :)

The bread is soft but not very soft and fluffy. Probably because I did not knead well. It turned hard on the next day. I wonder how the bread we buy from the bakery remains soft for a few days.

If you have noticed that I have not been updating my blog, it's because my pc crashed due to virus and removed everything in my pc. Now I have to reinstall everything again. :(


  1. Hi!
    Your sweets buns don't look out of shape!
    They look so much better than mine.
    My buns were barely round, haha.
    I didn't pass the window pane test too, got to try harder yea?

  2. Thanks! I thought yours are good too with the apple filling. Maybe can try adding different fillings next time. Let's work hard together. :)

  3. This first time I tried kneading this bread, it took me like 30mins of wrestling with the dough before it pass the window pane test!!!

  4. Ya, really need a lot of strength right. :)
