Cinnamon Wholemeal Buns

Starter Dough:
95g bread flour
65g wholemeal bread flour
65g plain flour
20g caster sugar
5g instant dried yeast 
180g water

Main Dough:
110g bread flour
50g wholemeal bread flour
70g plain flour
60g caster sugar
3/4 tsp salt
20g milk powder
65g egg (lightly beaten)
40g water
40g corn oil

Toppings:  Mix together
Ground cinnamon
Ground walnuts
Black sesame seeds
Brown sugar
  • Mix all the started dough ingredients until well combined.  Cover and leave at room temperature until the dough rises and becomes sticky, pasty and has a stringy appearance ("honeycomb"-like). 
  • In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine all main dough ingredients, except oil. Then add in the starter dough, knead until well combined.  Add in oil and continue kneading until dough is smooth and elastic and leaves the sides of the bowl and passed the Window Pane Test.
  • Place the dough in a bowl, cover and let it rise until double in size.
  • Punch down the dough to release trapped air.  Divide dough into 16 pieces (about 51g each).  Roll each portion into a ball and placed them onto a lightly greased baking pan.
  • Cover and leave to rise until almost double in size.
  • Preheat oven to 175 deg C.
  • Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with toppings.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
