Ingredients Serving: 8

  1. 3 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (more if needed)
  2. 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  3. 3/4 cup warm water
  4. 4 tablespoons sugar
  5. 1 cup warm milk
  6. 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
  7. 2 tbsp milk powder
  8. 1 teaspoon salt
  9. Melted butter, to brush on top


  1. Grease the muffin tins. Keep aside. In a bowl, combine the yeast with 1 tbsp sugar in warm water. Cover with a plastic wrap and let it sit for 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. In the mixer bowl, mix in 3 cups of flour with the remaining sugar, melted butter, warm milk, milk powder and salt. Add in the yeast/sugar mixture. With a kneader blade fitted on a heavy-duty mixer, knead and gradually add in the remaining flour until a soft dough sticky is formed.
  3. Remove from the bowl, cover and let it rest for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, knead for 30 seconds. Coat a bowl with oil. Transfer the dough to the bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm area, for 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
  4. Punch down the dough. Remove from the bowl and place the dough on the counter. Slice the dough evenly in half, set one piece aside. Shape the piece of dough into a chunky long rope. Slice into 18 pieces.
  5. Place 3 balls into each muffin tin. Repeat this process with the remaining piece of dough and muffin tin. Cover the tins with a clean tea towel and allow it to rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes.
  6. Remove the tea towel and brush the tops with melted butter. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 10-15 minutes or until the buns turn into a golden colour.
