Sweet Bun With Coconut Filling


Dear Mak Teh

I hope this find you well. Thank you for your kind email, asking about my whereabouts and my MIA from the cyberworld. 

As usual, I am busy with the endless housework and my duty as a driver. In addition to that, my internet connection is not so good for the last couple of days. Being an impatient kind of person, I just don't have the heart to waste my time waiting. So yes, I opted for not switching on the laptop hence the silence.

Thank you. 

 Yours trully, 

Nota kepada Izah Daut, hihi..dah serik nak email mama ke? Takut tifah tertifu lagi ke? Ahaks... peace Izah! 

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

  8. First time here. What a beautiful blog. I would like to try the recipe for Raisin bun and sweet bun but before that wld u clear some of my doubts. Is high protein flour the same as bread flour. I wld be using my Krups to knead the dough. Do i knead to add in more water. How do u get the bread so white on the sides wherein mind wld be browned. By the way, what is ovallette. Thank u for all your good work. Allah bless u nd yr family always

    1. Thank you for visiting my humble blog Gracy. Let me try and answer your questions the best that I know ya for I am still learning myself.
      1. High protein flour is the same as bread flour.
      2. Frankly speaking, I haven't tried using a mixer to do the kneading. But I am pretty sure that you don't need to add more liquid to the recipe. Do stick to this equation : egg + milk powder + iced water = 300ml
      3. These bread of mine was particularly white on the sides because I took it out a bit too early. Should be golden brown though, so that it will stay longer. But since these buns of mine were finished the very same day, then it is not a problem :D
      4. Ovalette is cake emulsifier or cake stabilizer.
      5. Thank you for your duaas and same goes to you and your family. Take care!

  9. Hello I'm little confused about water part... is it means 300ml water itself or different number of water ml include egg and milk powder ? Please clear that up for me and thank you so much! It looks amazing recipe to try
