Mini Pumpkin Cheese Buns

Fresh from the oven

These cute little buns are really easy to make and make for a healthy snack.  


200g bread flour
20g milk powder
1 tsp instant dried yeast
40g caster sugar
100g mashed pumpkin
35g beaten egg
60g cream cheese
Pinch of salt

1) Put all ingredients (except for cream cheese) in a mixer and knead for 10 minutes.  Add cream cheese and knead for another 5 minutes till a smooth dough is formed.  Cover and let it rest for about 45 minutes, or till it doubled in size.
2) Punch out air and divide the dough into 24 pieces.  Round up each of the dough and place on baking tray lined with baking paper (leave a small gap in between for the dough to expand).  Let the dough rest for another 45 minutes (I placed it in closed door oven).
3) Bake in preheated oven of 190C for 10 to 12 minutes.  Brush a thin layer of melted butter on the buns and transfer to rack to cool completely.

I had 3 mini buns for breakfast with coffee and gave a packet of mini buns to my neighbour's kids

I would like to share this delicious recipe with Aspiring Bakers #8: Bread Seduction (June 2011)hosted by Jasmine of Sweetylicious

  4. These pumpkin cheese buns are so the golden colour!

  5. Amelia/Jasmine/Anncoo: Thanks for your lovely notes.

    Lucy: Come, try it。


  6. Have follow the recipe but cannot combine due to missing of liquid factor,should water be added and how much?

  7. The moisture from the mashed pumpkin, beaten egg and cream cheese will be sufficient to bind the bread dough. If your dough is still too dry, try adding one to two tablespoon of milk.
