Chocolate Buns with Coffee Buttercream

Inspiration came to make something chocolatey and laced with coffee for tea time, and my kids now are big enough to have some coffee, well... not all my kids though. The second one still refuses anything with coffee. 

Dough recipe : 
Please refer to my Chocolate Cream Cheese Buns
Divide dough into 10 portions, and shape into oblong pieces 
Baking temperature and time is the same.
Let the buns cool down TOTALLY before filling with buttercream. 

Coffee Buttercream Recipe

(A) Basic Swiss Meringue Buttercream
60g egg whites (from 2 eggs) 
100g sugar
150g butter (I used Demi-sel instead of unsalted)
*For method, please refer to the original buttercream post

2 Tbsp condensed milk
2 tsp instant coffee
1 tsp boiling water (or as needed)

1. Prepare basic Swiss Meringue Buttercream
2. Melt instant coffee with boiling water. 
3. Put the melted coffee into buttercream and beat until combined. 
4. Taste the buttercream. If you think it’s too bitter, Add condensed milk. Add more if needed. But I feel the taste is better with some condensed milk.


  1. These buns look so perfect! And you piped the coffee buttercream on here so beautifully!

  2. hi wendy, your link for the bun is cant be open :)
