Chocolate Cream Cheese Buns - Cheezy Breads #1

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!

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

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

  3. Looks intriguing. I would love to try some.

  4. Georgeous buns! Lovely colour contrast! I won't mind the bits of cheddar! Give me one!

  5. thank you for sharing this recipe because i'm going bake this soon

  6. Nice buns, must be so good to eat with the cream cheese and cheddar cheese filling. Hah! Hah! "itchy butt" direct translation from Hokkien :D

  7. Thanks, Wendy! Nice buns! Can't wait to try out this coming weekends :)

  8. Hey, like your "itchy butt" it really makes me laugh almost fell off from the chair. hahahaha...
    Beautiful and delicious buns.

  9. *TAG..!!* Jeezz.. I have too many homework since last time I came here, LOL.. your recipes always make me droll..

  10. It has been very long time not bake chocolate buns. This bread really tempting! Bookmarked!

  11. 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!

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. Anonymous,
    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

  17. This one also looks yummy..... i wanna try this too.... for your info i've already tried few of ur recipe such as mr ng buttercake, sweet bun, stim bread and all that come with success..... thank you so much.....

  18. I baked it last weekend & it was my first try @ baking bread. The bread turned up fluffy & yummy!! My 18mth boy can't get enough of it hehe thanks for the lovely recipe! Next time I will try it with different fillings =)

  19. I guess I'm a baking idiot since I have no clue how much 300gm is of flour and so on, the only one I understood was...(drum roll please) yep you guessed it, 1 Tbsp of full cream milk powder and 2 slices of cheddar So enless all the gm's are broke down to cups or what ever for me I wont be making these oh so delicious chocolate Bunns...siiiigh lol

  20. Wendy, can u substitute full cream milk powder with fresh milk? Same amount - 1 tbsp?

  21. 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?
