Roti boy – Mexican bun

We, Indonesian, called it roti boy, but maybe you know it as Mexican bun. This is my weekend project, as this last weekend of January, I don’t want to go outside, just want at home. My hubby who have a football league at noon, also cancelled his schedule, He also want to be at home with us, yeay!🙂

So, to make Adib happy, I asked him to have a kitchen’s project together. First he want to make cupcake, Green velvet cupcake just like he love. But, I’m not in my mood to make anything sweet😀 When, I asked him to help me make bread, Suddenly he jump , and take the bread flour.He want to use the bread flour since 4 months ago,since We never make any bread, so it was never been used.

Found the recipe at here  , lovely and inspiring blog🙂

250gre bread flour
40gr sugar
4gr yeast

35gr brown sugar

7. Pipe out the topping in spiral, bake for 10-12 minutes at 200dC.

The basic bread’s recipe can be used for any kind of bread, named it! Milk loaf bread, TUna or chicken floss bread, Chocolate or cheese filling bread ,Pizza bread, Burger or sandwich bun , Anykind of less sweet bread, You can used this simple recipe.

Just keep patience to make the dough smooth and elastic, since I only have simple mixer, so I used my hand, 30 minutes kneading the dough, and it gave me a great bun result!🙂

Maybe, my Roti boy looks pale in color, it because I don’t use coffee, because Adib did’t like coffee. When the bun came out fresh from the oven, Me, Adib and ayah can’t wait to try, it’s so delicious!🙂 Enjoy our lovely weekend, even we had a grocery shopping at the afternoon.

This last few days, Not in my mood to take any picture of Adib’s school snack, only this picture from last week😀
