I'm again without domestic helper, my days go back to a very busy schedule. Morning, I always rush with the time preparing Gabriel for school, sometimes I have to go without breakfast until 10 am. I try to drink the so call healthy cereal pre-mix pack just to fill my stomach in the rush hour, and I find I like the taste of black soybean cereal until I developed the idea to mix the cereal into my bread. Guess what, I'm glad that I give it a try, the taste of the bun is delicious.
Last night, I rearranged my workplace. A corner of the living room is converted into Mama and Gabriel's office, however, the mind of Gabriel is still thinking of his Papa who are on overseas business trip, he asked me "where is Papa's office?", I told him "papa's office is in the tall building at town, papa doesn't need a office at home." I think, Gabriel is not satisfy with my answer. I'm happy with my new corner and I think it does reflect in my baking too :) I think Gabriel is going to like the bun if I serve the bun with mushroom soup for his dinner ^^

50g bread flour
stir the milk and flour together and boil under medium heat. Once the liquid thicken, remove from heat. Set aside to cool. Keep into refrigerator for at least 12 hours.
Ingredients for bread:
270g bread flour

1. Add all (except the egg and butter, the liquid has to add in slowly) into a bowl until well blended. Add in egg and 100g of gelatinized dough, knead until well-blended. Add butter and knead to form elastic dough.2. Let it proof for 40 mins., flatten the dough and divide it into required weight (for me into 12 portions), roll it round and let it rest for 10 mins.
3. Flatten the dough and roll the dough into oblong and round shape and let it proof for another 40 mins.
4. Slice the top of the bun, decorate with some butter and sprinkle with sugar, bake at 180 for 15 mins.
