Chocolate Cream Cheese Buns - Cheezy Breads #1

Monday, December 10, 2012

It's been so long since I've posted about breads!
I think I should not be keeping these in my drafts any longer.

I saw this recipe in Veronica's blog and it loooooks soooo tempting.
But my cream cheese filling isn't as smooth as Veronica's. Maybe it's my itchy butt decided to chop up the cheddar slices and mix it in, LOL.

The recipe is egg free (if you skip the glaze) and with only that tablespoon of milk yields a pretty soft bun. I am impressed. Absolutely!

Fluffy and creamy bun. I don't mind having this kind of yummy bun everyday.

This is quite unusual from the usual....chocolate bus and with fillings too. Looks real soft.

I get so incredibly proud of myself when I make bread, or have a successful bake, but here you are, doing amazing creative things without any problem! these look so perfect and soft and fluffy!

Look very good . Thank for sharing this receip .
One question : If I don't use cocao powder , what can i subtitute for it .

Therese December 13, 2012 at 3:39 PM  

I'm never good with bread. What do you mean "window pane stage"? I don't have a bread mixer so I need to knead manually. Appreciate your advise.

WendyinKK December 14, 2012 at 11:50 AM  

Yee Ling,
too much chocolate, heaty leh, cannot everyday, hehehe.

thanks to Veronica for sharing this unusual bun;)

sure, try making it's delish!

Hahaha, I still think Veron's method is better.

Joceline lyn,

Nisa's Mom,
LOL, that's good isn't it. Spurs more action in the kitchen

I hope u like it

Shu Han,
LOL, I am not kneading manually, if not you won't be seeing these babies here.

If you want to use imitation cocoa paste, you can substitute the cocoa powder with all purpose flour. Other than that, I don't think you can substitue with anything else. Milo powder won't work.

Window pane stage is when you try to stretch the dough, it forms a membrane instead of breaking. If you don't reach this stage, the bread isn't as soft.

i make this last saturday, fist time make the bread. But y my bread very sticky geh? i did not combine all ingredients..i put in the butter last, but still cannot get the window pane dough....why ar?

WendyinKK December 28, 2012 at 4:29 PM  

The initial dough is sticky. Soft breads and buns are always sticky in the beginning. As you knead it will turn ok. Manual kneading takes up to 40 minutes to 1 hour for it to reach membrane stage

Hi Wendy. May I use high protein flour instead of bread flour? Veronica's Kitchen's recipe called for high protein flour/bread flour. Is it the same?
