Red Bean Paste Buns

I came across this recipe at, and as usual my hands started to itch. Thought of trying it out for tea time.  As you can see, I guess it turned out good. But the next time I think I would try to slow down the oven timing as I noticed the bottom of the buns were starting to get a little darker than the top. Oh well, the taste and texture is pretty good.

Bun recipe:
(A) 200g bread flour / 20g plain flour / 25g sugar / 1/4 teaspoon salt / 1/2 tsp + 1/4 tsp yeast / 15g milk powder / 1 egg / 115g water / 15g butter
(B) 200g red bean paste (divide into 8 portions) / 20g white sesame
  1. Mix ingredients (A) with bread machine for 30 minutes until it become a smooth and elastic dough.
  2. Place the dough into a clean bowl and cover with cling wrap to proof for 60 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 portions and round them into small balls. Then fill the doughs with red bean and shape it into a smooth balls. Let the dough proof for 15 minutes.
  4. Slightly flatten each dough and use a scissor to cut the edges into 8 flower pedals. Continue to proof for 10 minutes.
  5. Egg wash the doughs then top with some sesame. Bake at 190'C preheated oven for 15 minutes until golden brown.
