Servings 4


  • 420 grams high-gluten flour
  • 225 grams water
  • 60 grams fine sugar
  • 45 grams butter
  • 30 grams egg wash
  • 6 g yeast
  • 15 g milk powder
  • a little salt


  • Add half of the butter and all the bread ingredients (not dressing ingredients) are added into a bowl and mixed.
  • Add the rest of the butter after 10 minutes and continue to mix.
  • When the dough is done mixing, it will look and feel smooth and stretchy as shown below.
  • Put the kneaded dough in a warm place to proof until it is about 2 and a half times bigger.
  • After the dough is fermented, take out and divide it into 12 portions, round and continue to rest for 15 minutes.
  • After it is done resting, use a rolling pin to knead the dough into an oval shape.
  • Then turn the oval dough over and roll it up.
  • When it is completely rolled, push the ends in, and the seals needs to be pinched, otherwise it will open when baked.
  • Put the rolled dough seam-down on the baking tray and move to a warm place to continue the rising again until the dough becomes 2 times larger.
  • Bread dough is brushed with a layer of egg wash. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees and then bake the dough for 10 minutes.
