Char Siu Bread Buns 叉烧面包 (Chinese BBQ Pork Buns) (65C Tangzhong Method)


Char Siu Bread Buns or Chinese BBQ Pork Buns is my son latest favourite breakfast (of course he has many type of favourite breads because his mum love to make breads ^^) I used the leftover Char Siu Bao filling to make this baked buns. 

The bread texture is super soft, I'm using golden syrup and water roux starter in this bread making. I like both steamed and baked Char Siu Buns. How about you? 

This recipe yield: 16 buns









Ingredients:

Tangzhong/ water roux starter:
30g bread flour
150ml water

bread dough:
500g bread flour 
55g pastry flour (top flour)
30g milk powder
5g instant dry yeast
60g fine sugar
1/2 tsp salt
~110g Tangzhong
160 ml water (add gradually)
20g golden syrup
60g butter, chop in small pieces


Filling:
180 g BBQ Pork filling (Char Siu filling)

Egg wash:
one egg yolk with 2 tablespoons of milk, mix well

Method:
1. Prepare Tangzhong: Mix together ingredients in Tangzhong, cook under medium heat, keep stirring until the mixture thicken, not boiling. Remove from heat, cover and set aside until cool.

2. Prepare filling: Please refer to Steamed BBQ Pork Buns (Char Siu Bao)

3. Prepare bread dough: In the electric mixing bowl, add all bread dough ingredients except water and butter. Gradually add water (set aside 50ml for slowly add in) and mix with KitchenAid speed 2 for a min before change to speed 4. Slowly add more water. 
4. When the mixture form rough dough or able to pull away from the mixing bowl, add in butter. Continue to let KitchenAid knead the bread dough until elastic windowpane. It means the bread dough is able to stretch open on your palm without tearing. 
5. Cover the dough and let it proof to double its size. Punch out the air in the bread dough, divide the dough into 16 equal portions. Shape the dough into round balls. Let it rest for 10 mins.
6. Flatten the dough into circle with middle part a bit thicker than the edge. Place a heap teaspoon of BBQ pork filling in the middle. Wrap up the edge of the dough, shape the dough into round ball. Place the dough on the baking tray, let it proof until double its size.
7. Egg wash the dough. Use a sharp razor, gently slice a few slices on the top of the bread. 
8. Bake in a preheat oven at 180C for 15 mins. or until the top of the bread turned slightly brown.
