Another Hot Dog Buns

This is my family's favourite bun. Made this countless times! :) Wanted to share with others that you can actually use corn oil in place of butter for bread (much healthier). This is my findings after trying with loaves and buns. I see no different in texture of the bread if corn oil is used.

Recipe as follows:
(Make 16 buns)

Ingredient A:
300g bread flour (I add abt 2 tbs more - add 1 tbs at a time)
1/2 tsp salt
1+1/2 tbsp milk powder
50g caster sugar

Ingredient B:
125ml water
1+1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 egg

Ingredient C:
40g butter (I use 40g corn oil)

For glazing:
1 egg (Beaten)

For filling
8 pieces chicken sausages/frankfurters (halved)
Some chilli sauce, some dried Rosemary (bottled) (I use tomato sauce)


1. To make bread dough: Combine ingredient A in a mixer and mix well. Add in ingredient B and beat till a dough is formed. Add in ingredient C and beat till dough is smooth and elastic to the touch.

2. Leave dough in a big bowl, covered with a damp cloth. Let it rise in a warm place for 35 minutes until double its original size. Divide dough into 35g portions. Flatten and roll out each portion dough into a longish shape. Place a halved sausage roll in the centre, roll up and seal. Arrange on a greased tray, well spaced apart. Cover and rest for the next 40 minutes until buns double in size once again.

3. Glaze with beaten egg wash and decorate with a spread of chilli sauce. Sprinkle some dried Rosemary on top. Bake buns in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 15 minutes. Cool well on a wire rack.

While waiting for the buns to cool off, my sons asked for the buns. :)
