Chocolate Mexican Bun

Whenever I make Rotiboy, I will reserve part of the dough and make some chocolate Mexican buns for the little ones. The kids love these, although most of the times they seems to be more excited about that crunchy chocolate layer on top, and they always mistaken the butter inside as cheese. 

Makes 8 buns


Tang Zhong Starter Dough
  • 20g bread flour
  • 95 ml water
Bread Dough
  • 200g bread flour
  • 32g caster sugar
  • 3g salt
  • 3g milk powder
  • 3/4 tsp instant yeast
  • 32g egg, beaten
  • 23g whipping cream
  • 20g fresh milk
  • 19g unsalted butter
  • 56g butter, divided into 8 portions
  • 66g butter

Cooking Directions
  1. For Tang Zhong, mix water with bread flour and cook over low heat in a pot.

  3. Let tang zhong cool to room temperature before use.
  4. Mix all the ingredients under 'bread dough' (including tang zhong) except the butter. Knead until smooth and elastic (around 10 minutes).
  5. Knead in butter until fully incorporated (around 5-10 minutes).
  6. Cover the dough (you can use a clingwrap or pastry cloth; if you have none of these, just put it in a pot and cover with the pot cover) and place it in a warm place to let it undergo the 1st proofing, about 1 hour.
  7. Place the dough onto a clean floured surface. Punch down and divide the dough into 8 portions.
  1. Mix together all ingredients.
  1. Wrap a portion of butter filling in each portion of dough.
  2. Let the dough undergo 2nd proofing until double in size.
