I am sure that everyone by now know my love for baking and trying out new bakes each time. But its almost more than a month, I baked something. This one was lying in my draft for quite sometime waiting for its turn to be posted. And the day seemed to have arrived.
Now coming to todays recipe, I have always been fascinated by the cream stuffed buns available in most of the supermarkets in Singapore and it (along with some fruits) constitutes my breakfasts for most of the days. So I have always wanted to try out stuffed buns and this one was one of my baking experiments which was quite successful. Though I want to try some savoury stufffing, due to some time constraints, I used a little orange marmalade inside the buns. I will surely come up with some savoury buns soon. Till then I hope you enjoy this sweet buns.
Add the yeast in warm water in a mixing bowl and leave it for 10 minutes to froth. Then add salt and sugar and the flours and mashed banana if using and knead to smooth, elastic and non sticky dough. Coat the dough with oil. Cover the bowl with a cloth and leave it in a warm place for 2 hours so that it rises and doubles in volume.
After 2 hours, punch the dough and knead it for sometime. Then make 10 to 12 equal sized balls with it. Roll the ball with a rolling pin into a small circle. Place some marmalade in the center of the circle. And again seal it giving it a ball /bun shape flattening it a little.
Leave this for around 1 hour for rising. Place some tutty fruity on the top if using. Preheat the oven at 180c. Bake them for 40 minutes at 180c. Cool on a metal rack.
