Cinnamon Buns

This is the recipe I have been making for years, but somehow I never posted it here. Before I knew I could make these things myself (before I really got into baking at home), I used to eat them during every trip to the US or Canada. Preferably as breakfast or afternoon snack. I prefer the buns slightly warm -fresh out of the oven or the next day heated up- without the thick layer of frosting. I just don’t like frostings that much, also the reason why I dislike most cupcakes.

Coconut buns

Hmmmm.. checked my drafts today and this one was never posted. This is a post from December 2012!! >.< Here it is now. Just over one and a half years later….. Ahum. I won’t be posting recipes for a while probably. I just started my internship (it is part of my program at school). I work 5 days a week now and don’t feel like making a mess in the kitchen and cleaning it up when I’m at home. :p

Cookie buns (Mexican coffee buns)

I haven’t posted anything in three weeks as I had exams and not a lot of time to bake, take pictures and post them online. But now I have vacation (!!!) and I of course baked some things this weekend. I made these coffee buns which have several names: rotiboy buns, mexican coffee buns, cookie buns, coffee buns… Well I’ll just call mine cookie buns.

Chocolate rolls 1x1

Chocolate bread rolls

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you have seen these rolled up chocolate breads already.  I made these about a week ago. I wanted something chocolate-y, but not cookies or brownies. So bread  filled with chocolate seemed like the best and healthiest choice, plus I hadn’t tried that before.

Right now I’m busy studying for my exams so I’m not making anything this weekend. It doesn’t matter, as I procrastinated enough last week by making yummy stuff. So there is enough left to post!

Savory bread rolls 1x1

Savory bread rolls

Okay, you’d might not want to eat these super delicious bacon, onion, corn and cheese rolls before your date, but you would definitely want to any other moment of the day. Awesome as a snack in between meals or as part of your breakfast / lunch. You could even serve these with some soup for dinner. Endless possibilities I’d say.

Two styles sausage buns

I love sausage buns, the dough is so soft and fluffy. I could eat these everyday as lunch. You can make different ones so you won’t get bored with them, try different sausages etc. Until now I only made the spiral formed ones, Hong Kong style sausage buns. Then I couple weeks ago I saw different shapes with cheese and ketchup on top of them. Seemed easy and worth a try.

Hong Kong style sausage bun

I used to eat Chinese buns almost every week when I was little. Now I don’t get to eat them that often since there is no Chinese bakery in a close range from my house and the quality has dropped.

So nowI make sausage buns and bbq pork buns once in a while and store them in my fridge. These are so yummy at university as a lunch!

I found the recipe at Christine’s Recipes and have made these three or four times already.

The dough is somewhat sticky to work with, maybe I have to knead it longer… I don’t have a bread machine, but I use the KitchenAid to knead the dough, it works fine but it seems stickier than it should be. Continue for the recipe!
