Sesame Seeds & Garlic Buns

Sigh! What shall we have for breakfast tomorrow? After browsing my recipes files, decided to bake these buns as I've all the ingredients on hand. I'd used corn oil in place of the butter called for in the "basic sweet bun dough".

My house was filled with the delicious aroma from the garlic bread...

Sesame Seeds & Garlic Buns (Make 8 buns)


1 qty "basic sweet bun dough"

For garlic mixture:

100g butter (softened), 5 pips garlic (finely chopped)

1/2 tbsp parsley (chopped), 1/2 tsp salt (I used spring onion i/o parsley)

For Topping:

100g white sesame seeds

For glazing:

1 egg (beaten)


1. To make garlic mixture: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well.

2. Leave the dough in a big bowl, covered with a damp cloth. Let it proof in a warm place for 30 minutes until double in size. Scale dough at 80g portions and shape into balls.

3. Leave them to rest for 10 minutes. Flatten and roll out each ball of dough into a long shape. Glaze with egg and coat surface with white sesame seeds.

4. Place them on a greased baking tray. Cover and proof for the 3rd rising, taking about 45 minutes. Slit top and spread in garlic mixture. Baked in a preheated oven at 180 deg C for 15-20 minutes till golden. Cool well on wire rack.
