40 Minute Bread Rolls

There was a lot of buzz over this 40 mins bread rolls.  Initially I wanted to jump into it too but I held back when VR show me her effort.  Hers was not as fluffy as it should be.  We think it is under kneading.  

I just couldn't shake it off as I see more people attempting it with good result.  The curiousity in me just need to nail it.

With a box of yam paste in the freezer and some leftover char siew fillings, I think making buns will be the fastest to clear all these.

It takes longer than 10 mins to bake to a nice golden brown.  Not too sure whether because I used mik as egg wash.

I do not experience strong yeast taste, perhaps it is because my bread has fillings.  Overall the texture is soft and stay soft even the next day.  

This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Verdict: I took longer than 40 mins not because I have problem with the dough but rather I was taking my time to wrap the fillings.  

Thanks for sharing.
