Chinese hot dog buns recipe
Otherwise all the tissues inside would be broken apart.) The time of kneading all depends on how hard and fast you knead. (Note: I use bread maker to do this hardest part and messy job for me. I added the wet ingredients into my bread maker first, then followed by the dry ingredients. The yeast is the last to add.)
Knead the dough into a ball shape. Place in a greased bowl and cover with a wet towel or cling wrap. Let it proof till it's doubled in size, about 40 minutes (Note: the time will vary and depends on the weather. The best temperature for proofing is 28C. I still used my bread maker in this stage. And my bread maker has a heater.)
Transfer to a clean floured surface. Deflate and divide the dough into four to six equal portions. Knead into ball shapes. Cover with cling wrap, let rest for 15 minutes (see picture 2).
Knead each part into a long tube, about 41cm in length (it depends on how long your sausage). Roll to enclose the sausage, with seals facing down (see picture 3). Place rolls on a tray lined with baking paper, covered with cling wrap or a wet towel. Leave it for the 2nd round of proofing, about 45 to 60 minutes, until double in size.
Brush whisked egg on surface of rolls. Bake in a pre-heated 180C (356F) oven for 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
- This bread can be made with or without a bread maker.
- Testing your dough before proofing is quite important to make sure you’ll enjoy soft and fluffy bread after baking.
- The time of proofing has to be long enough, yet not to over-do, in order to get the best result.
