Coconut Buns

It was a hazy day (PSI 262) and since we plan not to go out, I decided to bake this Coconut Buns. I had cross referenced with a few recipes on the coconut filings but the quantity was too much for 1 lot of dough. So I decided to come up with this adjusted quantity which I feel should be perfectly fit the amount of dough. I love the filings with a little moist and  the gula melaka flavour that blends so well with the bun.


Coconut Filings
130g gula melaka
130g water
2 pandan leaves
250g grated coconut

320g bread flour
30g sugar
5g instant yeast
210g milk
40g salted butter

Milk (I used Soya Milk for brushing)


1. In a frying pan, add water, pandan leaves and gula melaka. Cook till the sugar completely dissolved. Reduce heat and stir in grated coconut. Cook until gula melaka has evenly coated the grated coconut. Set aside to cool down.
2. Mix bread flour, sugar and yeast in the mixing bowl, mix well.
3. Add in the milk and mix into a dough.
4. Add in butter and continue kneading for another 10 mins.
5. Allow the dough to rest about 1 hour or till double in size.
6. Divide the dough into 35g and roll into round shape. Spoon coconut filing in the centre, seal the edge and place them on a lined baking tray. Allow the dough to proof for about 40 mins.
7. Brush the dough with soya milk (or fresh milk).
8. Baked in a preheated oven 180 Deg C for about 15 mins or until the top brown.
