Milk Buns (Banh Mi Sua)
2 1/2 cup Bread Flour
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tsp. Active Yeast
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. unsalted Butter
2/3 cup and 2 Tbsp Whole Milk
Make sure your Milk is warm about 95-110 degrees F. Add in 2 tsp. of Active Yeast. Give it a quick mix and set aside.
In a bowl add 2 1/2 cup Bread Flour. Add 1/2 cup Sugar and 1/2 tsp. Salt. Mix. I'm using a food processor with a dough blade to knead, but you can knead by hand if you want to. Add 1 Egg. Add 2 Tbsp. unsalted Butter. Pour in the milk with the yeast.
Knead until it forms a dough. Place in a large bowl cover with plastic wrap and wait for it rise. This takes about an hour. Once it doubles in size take it out and give it a quick knead.
I'll be baking it in 3 loaf pans, one large loaf and 2 mini ones so I'm going to divide it out into 5 equal pieces. For the large loaf, I'll be using 3 pieces.
Flatten each piece then roll it.
Place it in the loaf pan. For the mini I'm taking one of the dough, divide that into 3 equal pieces and roll each piece. Then place it in the mini loaf pan.
Cover it up and let it rise again. Once it rise it should look something like this. Spread some egg wash on top. Since I'm baking in glass and ceramic,
I'm baking at 325 degrees F.
If you using metal, you should bake it at 350 degrees F. The time for each loaf varies, mine took about 10-12 minutes and the mini took about 7 minutes.
