Yeast Bread Recipe @

Am really hooked on bread baking and quite some time  did not share any new project using yeast.  I have found baking your own bread so easy and addictive.   The smell alone was enough to make me salivate.

Although I like  buying Red Bun Flower Bun from bakeries,  I love baking them even more.  So decided to make them at home. They tasted better than bakeries and turned out warm. and super fresh.

These Red Bean Flower Bun are so appetizing that you will eat at least a couple of them in one sitting.  The soft and fluffy bun tastes so delicious, it  can be eaten  as it is.  It is so rewarding to sit down, sip a cup of coffee and devour them freshly baked.

You can shape these into a round ball instead  if you find shaping them to look like a flower a bit tedious.   Anyway what shape you make, they still taste awesome.

Punch the dough down, knead again and divide into  9 portions. Roll out each portion into 1/2 cm thick and 3 in round. Fill each round with 1 tablespoon of filling,  gather the edges to the center and seal tightly. Shape into ball then  flatten slightly. Place the rolls sealed side down,  cut from outside edge  about 1/2 in deep and  1 in intervals.

Complete the rest of the dough and place  buns onto baking pan, let it rest for 1 hour. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 180 C.

Brush rolls with milk,  sprinkle with sesame seeds at the center and bake for 15 minutes until golden.

Remove from oven and brush again with butter. .

This looks wonderful! I usually find my way over to my local Korean bakery when I need a red bean sweet fix, but I'm so glad to find out that it's easy to make it myself. Thank you for sharing!

I love red bean paste buns, but never would have thought to try them at home! Is there a brand of bean paste you'd recommend? Thank you!
