Roti Manis // Mini Sweet Bun



Last week, for almost 3 days my husband got tooth pain and he said : ' I should stop eating the sweetest stuff' OK .. !! never mind , mean is I won't do baking no more ^-^ but it was kind of strange for me, since I love baking that made me nervous - LOL.

The other days, when he feel better he started looked around , look for some snack. Well.. no cookies, no cake I made - poor him he..he..he. And than I decided to make something not too sweet but still taste great, and I chose to make a bread. Honest to GOD , make a bread it will gonna be my last achieve. I almost give up to make bread, I couldn't remember how many time I dump all dough into trash bin . Until I found a new method that I will love forever .

The key is so simple, get any kind of yeast put into warm water, and add 1 tsp of sugar. set a side .. you will see, if the yeast are raise is mean you can continue baking, if not.. just dump the mixture and make another one. Other wise you just waste your time !! Believe me,


Roti Manis // Sweet Bun

500 gram bread flour, sifted
1 pack of active yeast ( +/- 7 gram)
¼ cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
200 cc tepid water or less depend on your dough
2 eggs , room temperature
25 gram full cream milk powder
50 gram caster sugar
1 tsp salt
75 gram butter, softened



Add, 1 Egg yolk + 1 tbsp honey mixed well for brushing

1 – 2 tbsp melted butter



Directions :

Sprinkle the yeast onto ¼ cup the tepid water add 1 tsp sugar, stir, and set aside for 10 minutes until foamy. If yeast are foamy mean yeast active

In a mixer with dough hooks, mix flour, milk powder, caster sugar, eggs and waters until all mixed, then add butter and salt. Mix well, then knead it for a second time until dough become elastic. Put in the big clean bowl, cover with plastic. Set a side for 1 hour or until raise well, double in size –anyway, in this part you can put your clothes into laundry room or do blog walking so you will never realize until your dough raise ^_^ -

Punched the dough and knead again lightly, then divide them into small size about 30 – 40 gram each ,t hen rolls into balls, fill them with cheese, chocolate chips or whatever filling you like. Let stand for another 45 minute than brush with egg yolk mixture)., put any fillings you like Put them on the baking sheet, brush them with egg yolk, and bake into the oven 350 F for 20 minute or until golden brown. Right the way brush them with melted butter.

For filling , I put some bread with cheese , some with rice chocolate and some with peach jam and i sprinkle with white and black sesame seeds







Cheese Filling

50 grams shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp sugar powder
25 grams margarine
25 grams milk powder

mixed all the ingredients together.

Made your Roti Manis today for my Indonesian wife and children... Roti keju, roti pisang, roti chocolate, and some mixtures of all three. Flour must be dryer here as I had to add an extra 150ml of water, but the results were perfect, happy faces all around, reminded us all of home!

Terima Kasih Banyak Fitri!!
